CHOOSE your home inspector... and choose carefully!
All inspections are conducted by owner / inspector Rick Strand, I am a native Calgarian inspecting homes of all descriptions in Calgary & area for the better part of a decade. The use of a professional grade FLIR infrared camera has been included since 2012. An unmatched complete, accurate & unbiased written inspection report with color photos & illustrations is delivered by email within 24 hours.
I dedicate an entire day to each property resulting in the best value for YOU. Most inspectors charge the bulk of what I charge, but do 2 or 3 inspections per day. 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.
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 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.
