Home buyer’s pre-closing home inspection service

The home inspection service is performed prior to closing on either a new or existing home. The home inspection highlights deficiencies of  all components and systems in the home, includes a comprehensive written report accompanied by digital photos depicting safety and health concerns and construction deficiencies of the home. In addition to the report, the new home owner will receive a home maintenace manual and related information articles. The home inspection report will give the buyer the necessary information required to make the best decision possible.

Home seller’s pre-listing home inspection service

The home inspection service is performed prior to listing or selling the home and details all deficiencies that can affect safety, health and the general upkeep of the home.  The pre -listing report will include digital photos, a comrehensive report, a home maintenace manual and related information articles. The home owner can now address these concerns prior to selling. A pre-listing home inspection service helps to inspire confidence in prospective buyers regarding the condition of the home. The inspection will reduce time spent in contract negotiation, because, an unbiased and independent home inspector has inspected the home’s components and systems.

New home builder’s warranty home inspection service

The home inspection service will assist the new home owner with the Ontario New Home Warranty Program ( Tarion ). The report will detail all components, systems and cosmetic issues in the home and be accompanied by digital photos. The owner now has the information required to address all deficiencies, both material and workmanship. New home inspections for the first time buyer are educational and eye opening, many first time buyers are not familiar with homes or maintenance issues. It is the home inspector’s  job to help familiarize the new home owner with potential home issues.

Bruce did a wonderful and attentive home inspection of my dads home. We had a home inspection by the previous owner that was only 3 years old and Bruce identified many issues the other home inspector missed. We have peeled the house back to the framing and as Bruce predicted there were no issues where he said there would be no issues. If you want a trusted home inspector who provides fast and easy to understand notes then this is the company to hire!

Bruce was a pleasure to work with as we did the inspection for our new home. He encouraged us to accompany him through the home, pointing out details that would later be a part of our report (which we received the same day). The report we received was highly detailed, clear, and easy to understand. I have know Bruce for a number of years, and his integrity and experience are extremely valuable in what he does. He not only looks at the home, but at the environment in the area we were buying in and was able to point out things to watch out for in the future (e.g. underground streams, bedrock. Many thanks!

Bruce arrived at least 10 minutes before the appointment, and spent the time starting to look around. He was informative during the inspection, and the report after was detailed and easy to understand. He followed up a few days after, as well as a few weeks after asking if there were any other questions. I would recommend Bruce to anyone looking for a home inspection

Bruce did a fantastic job of a home inspection on a house we purchased for our son. He was very professional and provided a detailed report which we were able to use to have the house price reduced to correct some issues. I was truly impressed with the quick turnaround with the report which we needed in a couple of days for the final offer. I would highly recommend him.

We hired Bruce to assist us with completing our 1 year Tarion new home warranty list. He was very thorough and identified a few items that we would not have found on our own. He also gave us some maintenance tips for our home.

I contacted BLT Home Inspections on a referral from another professional home inspector who was not able to do the work for me on the day I needed the job done. I was looking for efficient, punctual and thorough reporting with keen observations and professional advice that I could trust. I was not disappointed. Bruce was right on time, and ready to work. He was pleasant and polite , respectful of the property and took needed time to examine all aspects of the livable area of the home according to his business contract. He answered all my questions well and pointed out areas of recommendation both on site and soon after through a straightforward report. His report was complete and included pictures with pointers as reference. I am very happy with the results of his work and would definitely recommend BLT Home Inspection Services. Excellent job!

We are very happy with our inspection report from Bruce. He was punctual, thorough and included lots of pictures with recommended timelines for repair. With details from his report we were able to have the sellers agree to repair a problem before closing. A problem we probably would've missed and had to pay thousands for down the line. I would recommend BLT to family and friends.

Bruce more than exceeded our expectations of a home inspector. He reflected a high level of knowledge in his field. He was punctual and had the time management skills and ability to meet our deadline on time. We would not hesitate to recommend BLT Home Inspections to any of our friends.

Bruce did a great job with our home inspection. I work in the home and property management business and I've seen many issues that arise in the home. I felt that Bruce was spot on with his identification of the status of items on the home inspection checklist. His report was very well written and packed with great, well explained images. I will use his report as my list of 'things to do' as soon as we take possession of the home.
