Buying a home in Ontario is an exciting process.

This is a time when an expert, professional home inspection is needed most. Criterium-Jansen Engineers can provide you with a detailed home inspection report to help you learn about the house you want to buy and avoid costly surprises in the future.

A careful examination of a house is not easy. Criterium-Jansen Engineers provides home inspections by Professional Engineers who are licensed by one of the twelve licensing bodies in Canada and adhere to the highest legal and ethical standards.

Our inspection is a limited visual inspection consistent with the standards of practice of the National Academy of Building Inspection Engineers (NABIE), designed to identify significant deficiencies and/or repairs needed in the major systems of a home (structural, heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, roof, exterior) and to provide a general understanding of the property's current condition.

We look at the following areas during our Standard Home Inspection :

Structure Interior
Wood-Destroying Insect Activity Exterior
Basement Water Roofing
Ventilation Life and Fire Safety
Heating and Cooling Energy Efficiency Pool and Spa
Plumbing Environmental
Electrical 

Following the on-site home inspection, you will receive a detailed written report that our clients find easy to follow. The most popular feature of the report is our Home Maintenance Plan, which provides home owners with useful information about their home's expected condition for the next ten years and includes cost estimates for repairs, upgrades and maintenance items.

Call Criterium-Jansen Engineers for our pricing structure, which is determined by the property's size, age, location and the service you request.
