Alliston Home Inspections – Buying or Selling ?
The process of buying or selling a home is stressful enough without having to worry about possible major structural deficiencies with the foundation, roofing structure or HVAC and plumbing systems. If you’re the “Buyer” you could easily experience costly unforeseen repairs and damages a few months after the purchase. If you’re the “Seller”, your asking price may need to be reduced or deficiencies repaired.
Home inspections are increasingly becoming a required part of the real estate transaction. We are not only there to protect you from possibly making a costly real estate mistake, a home inspection can assure you the property you are purchasing has properly functioning systems and the overall structure is free from defects.
Alliston Home Inspections will identify issues or deficiencies that otherwise may go unnoticed until after your transaction closes. Protect yourself from unexpected expenses and/or repair bills by having a Professional inspect your property.

Certified WETT Inspection
Most insurance companies now require a WETT Certified Inspection of your Wood Burning Appliance prior to insuring your home. A WETT inspection is a review of the components of a wood-burning system to ensure that they are installed correctly, are maintained in good working order, and that all parts of the system are compatible with one another. It is also a review of clearances between the components and adjacent combustibles like the walls, floors, and anything else in the area that could catch fire.
View some examples of potentially dangerous defects found while conducting WETT Certified Inspections.
Alliston WETT Inspector will provide your Inspection Report at the time of inspection. Most WETT Inspections can be scheduled within 24 – 48 hours. When included as part of Home Inspection a WETT Inspection fee is only $75.00
