In Ontario, there are no Government rules or regulations as to what a home inspector is or what she or he will do for you. Anyone can set up a web site and print business cards calling themselves a home inspector. Hence, you will see differences in fees charged for inspections among those of us who are qualified (as we are) and those who aren’t.
With Thor Home Inspections, you can be confident that our inspections follow the standards of practice. To this end, our rates are competitive to the industry services which includes the use of professional industry inspection reporting software. By the end of the inspection, your report will be ready for review including all of the pictures and findings the inspector has collected. All of this technology is included in your fee.
