Welcome to Barrie Home Inspections resource page.


Whether you are a new home purchaser or are purchasing a century home, these resources will make your decisions a little easier. The local real estate market is booming and houses are moving quickly. The following list of common problems and solutions will make your decision that much easier.

As a member of the Ontario Building Officials Association, I receive information concerning new updates in technology and techniques as soon as they are approved. This is one of the continuing education processes that we participate in to bring you the best service possible. Building by-laws in all of Simcoe County are another area where we keep our knowledge as current as possible.
