Certified Master Inspectors (CMIs)® are the best inspectors in the world. CMI is a professional designation available to all qualifying inspectors who wish to become Board-Certified by the Master Inspector Certification Board.
All CMIs are experienced, dedicated to education, and have a proven record in the inspection industry.
The “Certified Building Code Official” (CBCO) title became the recognized standard for competency in building code
administration and is looked upon by the building industry as a symbol of professionalism and expertise.
The parallel designation “Building Code Qualified” (BCQ) was developed for non-Government members
or Government members without the required level of experience. CBCO is known as “The Step Above.”
Free Thermal Imaging is performed with every home inspection. Thermal imaging can help find hidden moisture, missing insulation and electrical hot spots. One common item found in basements is that older homes typically only have insulation extending down 18 inches below grade. Ensure you known all there is to known about your new real estate investment.
The Orillia Home Inspector offers a 100% Money Back Guarantee on every inspection. This Iron Clad guarantee is in effect for 30 days after you take possession of your new home. This allows you time to get to know your property and discover any items of concern. We are the only company to offer this type of guarantee without “conditions”.
