About Us



CHOOSE your home inspector... and choose carefully!

All inspections are conducted by owner / inspector Rick Strand. I was born in Calgary and have been inspecting homes of all descriptions for more than a decade. The use of a professional grade FLIR infrared camera has been included since 2012. An Adobe® pdf home inspection report full of photos and informative illustrations will be sent to you by email the day after the physical inspection.

I dedicate an entire day to each property resulting in the best value for YOU. Most Calgary home inspectors conduct 2 or 3 inspections per day, but charge the same or even more. Some of my most satisfied clients have had a home inspection by others in the past, and are blown away by the difference in my process and home inspection report.

After many years & many houses, I have developed very effective methods & procedures, they are not the easiest, and defiantly not the fastest. My thorough inspection and subsequent written report of an average size home takes ~6 to 10 man hours, not counting travel time. How thorough is the inspector who does 2 or even 3 inspections and reports in a single day? Some of my competitors brag about having inspected thousands of homes in only a few years of operation, but I guess that makes them the fastest inspectors doesn’t it.

Watch out for fake / solicited / paid-for reviews. I encourage all of my clients to share their experience on Google, Yelp or Homestars, but don’t offer discounts, coupons or gift cards as an enticement. Strand Home Inspections would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver to you what I believe is the best home inspection service & written home inspection report in the industry.
