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.

Pre-Purchase Inspections

For older houses, but even for new ones, a pre-purchase inspection provides a large measure of protection from unpleasant surprises by providing the buyer with a clear understanding of the house they are considering buying. By identifying both positive features and deficiencies, as well as suggesting necessary repairs in the most cost effective manner, a pre-purchase inspection allows the buyer to make more informed decisions.

When clients attend a pre-purchase inspection they benefit from my 30 years of knowledge and experience as I evaluate more than 2000 items, providing a running commentary of observations and recommendations.  I visually inspect all accessible systems and components including:

  • structure and foundation
  • exterior finishes
  • site drainage and gutter system
  • electrical system
  • plumbing system
  • roof and attic space
  • basement and/or crawlspace
  • interior finishes
  • porches and decks

I also inspect and operate:

  • furnaces or boilers in heating season
  • plumbing fixtures in kitchens and baths
  • a representative sampling of lights and receptacles
  • a representative sampling of windows and doors

Examples of many of the things I have seen during inspections can be found in Photos – the good, the bad, the ugly – and even the funny!
