After 23 years as the Northwest Territories’ premier home inspection business, the time has come to announce my retirement and the closure of Housecheck Professional Inspection Services, effective February 1, 2024.

Other home inspection services options are now available in Yellowknife and the Northwest Territories.

Home of the only CAHPI certified Home Inspector in the NWT

Housecheck has been operating in Yellowknife since the early 1990’s. The founder, Paul Curren, was a pioneer in promoting home inspections in the North. Today, Housecheck is owned and operated by myself, Didier (Dee) Bourgois.

After becoming the owner of Housecheck Professional Inspection Services Ltd in 2001, I became the first, and to date, the only Registered Home Inspector (RHI) in the NWT certified by the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (CAHPI) — the Canadian organization whose mandate is to promote and regulate the home inspection profession.

Since 2001, I have inspected over 4000 houses in various NWT communities. Before becoming an RHI I was a Building Inspector and ultimately the Manager of the Building Inspections Division for the City of Yellowknife during a ten year period. And prior to that, a Red Seal certified journeyman carpenter building over 60 houses and residential units in Yellowknife. In all, 33 years of experience in house construction and home inspections in Yellowknife! As one of my clients said, ”Whether you are buying or selling a house, you cannot afford not to hire Housecheck.”

As a highly experienced and certified home inspector, I work exclusively for you, providing accurate, unbiased and professional information regarding the condition and operation of the home. You are encouraged to attend the inspection so that you can fully benefit from the wealth of additional information that I provide during the inspection. My written reports are clear, concise, and easy to read and understand.
