Montreal Home Inspectors

Since 1987, Joe Rodrigues has been providing Quebec homebuyers with Montreal home inspection services. Our pragmatic approach sets us apart from our competition. We not only spend time reviewing your potential property, we invest in educating you, so that you will have a thorough understanding of the home you are buying. Most of our business comes from referrals. Our satisfied customers are our most important marketing tool.

No one wants to inherit a “money pit”. The decision to purchase a home is made within the first 5 minutes of the first visit. The duration of the total visit is usually 15 to 20 minutes maximum. A home inspector’s role is to spend “time” in assessing a buyer’s potential investment.

The purpose of the inspection is to find as many apparent defects as possible, allowing you to make an informed decision.

Home Inspections Quotes

Joe and Michael have either an engineering background or college accreditation, so both have a trained eye for uncovering the facts about a home. Our inspectors are also members of ASHI. (American Society of Home Inspectors).

To provide you a quote for the inspection we need the following information:

  • Year of construction
  • Square footage of living space (or building size)
  • Type of house (i.e. Bungalow, cottage, etc.)
  • City or sector
  • MLS number
  • Is there a basement or crawl space

Our intention is to remove the emotion from the buying equation which results in a logical critical assessment that:

  • Increases financial security
  • Provides peace of mind
  • Decreases risk
  • Minimizes dollars spent

The Team

Joe Rodrigues

Home Inspector

Joe’s career in the building inspection business was jump-started with his degree in structural and civil engineering, which he received in 1979. He went on to launch Rodrigues Inspections in 1987, and since those early days he’s run the gamut of home inspections, having been through residential buildings of all shapes, sizes, and conditions of repair and disrepair.

Joe Rodrigues is strongly committed to training and education on an ongoing basis, and he brings that commitment to his current father-son operation. Despite having performed literally thousands of residential and commercial building inspections over the course of his career, Joe continues to invest in continuing education on a regular annual basis.

While Joe’s decades of experience have contributed to finely-honed technical skills, he believes that excellent communication is real the cornerstone of a successful business. As he explains, “an inspection is useless if the client doesn’t understand the results.” This is the foundational business philosophy behind the experiences of his customers: “Of course we have to be good technically, but we also have to be excellent communicators”.

Home Inspection Report

We want you there so that we can provide you with a written report and oral/visual walkthrough review at the end of the inspection. Just reading about the problem does not adequately convey the gravity or implications of some of the issues we identify.
