About Inspections

A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property designed to identify defects within specific systems and components that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. Areas that are inspected include the following: roof, exterior, basement, foundation, heating system, cooling system, plumbing, electrical, fireplace, attic, and interior.

Yes! We are all of the above.

Yes! The prices listed for home or condo inspections includes thermal imaging. We also offer thermal imaging as a stand-alone service.

The average home inspection takes approximately 2.5-3 hours. However, we stay as long as it takes to get the job done diligently.

Condo inspections start at $375. House inspections start at $525. There are a few factors that influence the price; the size of the property, its age, and its proximity to Calgary.

Our pricing is extremely competitive for the services we provide. What distinguishes us from other companies is our wealth of knowledge and experience.

We could charge more based on our qualifications but we're not a greedy bunch. Building & inspecting are our passions. We get paid to do something that we love.

That depends. If the house was built before 1975, you might want to consider it as we strongly recommend it. However, we've seen 99 percent blockages even in new homes. We often tell people it's not a glamorous job, but it might give you peace of mind. We regularly bring the cameras with us to each inspection just in case.

It’s your decision. We enjoy talking you through the process and explaining our findings. If circumstances do not permit your attendance, our written report is effective in communicating the findings.

Just make sure you're caffeinated! We would very much like for you to be alert and a part of the process.

Whatever makes you feel comfortable. Our preference is that it be kept below 6 people in order to allow us to give you and the property the proper focus and attention.

Everything except crypto currency and American Express.

Nicole Shalagan

"We would highly recommend a Home Inspection by 20/20 Home Inspections. As a result of their many years of experience in construction, their inspection was outstanding. We were particularly impressed with the time they spent with us explaining in great detail the mechanical systems in the home, the construction materials and techniques used in the home, and the building materials used in the home. Their knowledge and expertise were second to none and went far beyond our expectations."

Jan Shantz

"The quality of service we received was amazing! They were both very thorough, they took their time and they also showed us what they were doing and explained why they were doing it. They brought a lot to our attention, and showed us what to look for in our new home, and also what to do to maintain it. They were both very professional but very personable as well. They are both super knowledgeable."
