Inspection Services

Mainland Home Inspections offers professional home inspection services to the greater Vancouver area. We help homebuyers improve their knowledge and confidence before making an investment decision, providing a full analysis of any residential property—including standard family homes, townhomes, and condos. We comply with HIABC’s rigorous Scope of Inspection.

Residential Property Inspections

Home Inspection Services

Home Inspection

This inspection service is a comprehensive evaluation of a home’s visible and readily accessible components. Every homebuyer should bring in a professional inspector before agreeing to the terms of a purchase in order to learn about repair and maintenance issues that should be addressed during final negotiations with the seller. Whether the home is old or new, residential construction is a complicated process, and mistakes do happen—so it’s important to find out what can be done to correct potential issues before an investment is final.

Condo Inspection

Condo Inspection

A comprehensive property inspection of a condo is as equally important as an inspection of a standard family home. Condos often undergo changes in ownership, and it’s always possible that previous repair and maintenance issues were not addressed sufficiently. We’ll thoroughly inspect the condo’s structure and installed systems to help you learn what you need to know in order to make a protected investment.

Townhouse Inspection

Townhome Inspection

We also offer full evaluations of townhomes, giving prospective investors peace of mind by identifying potential defects and proposing viable solutions before negotiations come to a close. Townhomes can often be affected by issues originating in surrounding units or from the exterior structure of the building, and we strive to make sure that you’re knowledgeable about any existing issues so that you can make an informed buying decision.   

WHAT’S INCLUDED

Our residential property inspections will evaluate all major systems and readily accessible components of the home, including:

  • Roofing System
  • Structural Components
  • Foundation & Crawl Spaces
  • Basement
  • Grading & Drainage
  • Interior (doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, stairs)
  • Exterior (doors, windows, siding)
  • Deck
  • Garage & Carport
  • Electrical System
  • Heating System
  • Plumbing System
  • Air Conditioning system
  • Attic, Insulation, & Ventilation
  • Fireplaces

Thermal imaging is utilized in tandem with a moisture meter and other helpful tools as necessary to qualify suspected issues that are difficult to confirm with a visual examination alone.

Additional Property Inspections

11 Month Warranty Inspection

11th Month Warranty Inspection

We recommend scheduling this inspection service within the first year of owning your new home. The vast majority of standard home warranties are valid for one year after a finalized purchase, and it’s important to identify repair and maintenance issues before that warranty has expired so that you don’t have to pay out of pocket for expenses that would have otherwise been covered.

Pre Listing Inspection

Pre-Listing Inspection

This inspection service provides a detailed evaluation of a home’s condition that can be of tremendous benefit to the individual or family preparing to sell that home. By learning about the property’s strengths and weaknesses, you’ll have a chance to make recommended improvements before a listing for the home is made—and you’ll also be able to maintain a better relationship with prospective buyers by keeping them informed from the outset of negotiations.
