The AmeriSpec Experience
A detailed home inspection is like a “snapshot” of your new home on the day of the inspection. AmeriSpec will spend on average 2½ to 3 hours reviewing almost every area of your new home. Our home inspection checklist gives a brief summary of the inspection points.
Your inspector will test all readily accessible systems and components, utilizing normal operating controls, within the following areas:
Setting the Standards
AmeriSpec of Ottawa is a proud franchisee of the AmeriSpec of Canada family, offering The AmeriSpec Home Inspection – a visual inspection of over 400 items including the foundation, roof, and structural components, plus visible electrical, plumbing and mechanical operating systems of the property.
AmeriSpec’s highly-trained and certified inspectors have examined more homes than any other home inspection company in North America and are setting the standards for the home inspection industry. Our 400+ inspection findings are packaged in an attractive, easy-to-reference, three-ring binder. The AmeriSpec Report™ – the industry’s gold standard – features a comprehensive evaluation of the home, a Seasonal Maintenance Checklist, and access to special offers from our valued partners, such as The Brick, and AMJ Campbell.
Highly Trained Inspectors
AmeriSpec Canada offers AmeriSpec of Ottawa inspectors the best training in the industry by combining classroom instruction and hands on technical training in our state-of-the-art training facility. A replica of an actual home, complete with roof, hot water heater, plumbing, electrical wiring and appliances, has been constructed on the premises for training purposes.
This home is specifically designed to train AmeriSpec business owners and inspectors on what to look for when performing a home inspection. Parts of the house such as the entire kitchen, the garage door, and the lights in the front lawn are fully functional.
Used water heaters, furnaces and air conditioning units from real homes are brought into the training center classroom, giving inspectors the opportunity to examine these important home systems. This state-of-the-art facility provides new AmeriSpec business owners and inspectors the training needed to make them the best in the industry.
Standards of Practice
AmeriSpec inspectors are trained to perform a professional inspection that meets the highest standards in the industry – set by the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (CAPHI).
To enhance training in the classroom, AmeriSpec uses a complete educational training system developed specifically for AmeriSpec by Carson Dunlop and Associates, one of the most respected names in professional home inspection training.
AmeriSpec also takes continuing education seriously. Technical training classes are held periodically throughout the year to inform business owners about other inspection specialties. Spring and fall regional meetings include technical, operational and marketing training.
