Residential Inspections

Montreal | West Island | South Shore | Laval

A home inspection plays a crucial part in providing peace of mind when purchasing a new or used house. Protect yourself against problems that could result in major expenses.

Inspections Rodrigues provides Laval, South Shore, West Island and Montreal Residential home inspections. If you are buying an older home it is especially vital that you do your due diligence with a property condition report & assessment in order to minimize your risks. Water infiltration through roofs and basements can cause tens of thousands of dollars of repairs if not caught prior to purchase.

Age, geographic location and construction are all factors to be considered when purchasing in greater Montreal. Doing an inspection may give you leverage in the negotiation process, so that the bid price takes into account required renovations. Some of the key points addressed in the inspection of your residential property include the age and material of the electrical system, leaks in the plumbing, water damaged structure, attic insulation and prior renovations that may have safety issues.

The report is usually delivered the same day by email in PDF format. We look for defects and condition issues with the property as well as guide you with maintenance issues required to keep the property in good condition. We look forward to helping you during your decision making process with this property. Call or email us to make an appointment.

What happens when you want more details? A visual inspection can only get so far. When a definitive identification of a potential problem is required, additional testing and inspection services can be provided for a more in depth view of the property under consideration.

Why use a Montreal Home Inspector?

Many of today’s homes are professionally staged. Their beauty, charm or location are highlighted and their flaws are minimized. At Inspections Joe Rodrigues Inc., we are trained to see beyond the “make-up” and detect defects that the present owner may not be aware of or has taken for granted as normal.

A home inspector may advise the buyer of costly repairs which may not have been factored into the purchase price of the home.

A checklist of items are investigated and evaluated with a clear and unbiased view.

A detailed report in PDF format is prepared and sent by email usually same day. The findings are summarized and recommendations are made.
