Your Safe and Sound Home Inspection

Safe and Sound provides you with a clear, and unbiased picture of the home. Our inspection process is continually evolving based on experience, training and education, and use of the latest technology available.

Our inspector, Tom Gresham holds the designation Registered Home Inspector with the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (CAHPI), in addition to numerous other professional designations. He has completed 4000+ inspections and assessments during his career thus far, and possesses 20+ years of industry related experience.

Additional training and education are completed regularly to continually increase the quality of service that Safe and Sound provides. Examples of inspector training can be found on our Inspector Bio and Testimonial page.

Your Safe and Sound Home Inspection will provide you with a clear and accurate picture of the property’s condition compared to other properties of similar age, type, and location. This will assist you in making an educated, and well-informed decision.

A typical home inspection takes 3 to 4 hours. We encourage you to meet the inspector on site to go over a full summary of the inspection findings in person. This will allow you to view and discuss any areas of concern first hand.

Following the inspection, you will receive a comprehensive report sent via email for a fast delivery. A Safe and Sound report is typically 40 to 70 pages in length due to the large number of digital photos that we include for ease of reference. Our report also includes thermal images where applicable. A thermal imaging scan is completed free of charge with every home inspection. It is our company policy.

Customer service is key at Safe and Sound. Our relationship with you does not end with delivery of your inspection report. After your review we urge you to contact your inspector at any time, day or night to address any areas of concern, or that require further clarification.

Real estate transactions are time sensitive, thus we regularly take calls after hours to provide our clients with the best possible service. Safe and Sound also provides a consultation service to our customers for any future questions you have regarding your home or maintaining it. This service is provided free of charge for as long as you own your home.
