Home Inspection

Avoid costly surprises in the future. Before buying a home, it’s recommended to request that a licensed engineer perform a professional assessment of the house.

A home is your largest investment. It’s more than just a structure. It’s a place that you can call your own. A space you can relax at the end of the day, start new traditions, raise a family, and make memories with friends. Your home should be safe and secure. Don’t leave anything to chance with the roof over your head. Get a professional assessment of your home so you can have peace of mind that your home is sound.

Keller Engineering is comprised of professional engineers with extensive experience and training. Our highly-skilled team uses the latest technology to ensure that you receive a comprehensive audit, including photos, cost estimates, and a detailed summary — so you can make informed decisions.

What Is A Home Inspection?

A home inspection is a visual inspection of a home, conducted to identify any potential areas of concern that may need to be addressed. 

The visual inspection will be consistent with the standards of practice of the National Academy of Building Inspection Engineers (NABIE), designed to identify significant deficiencies and/or repairs needed in the major systems of a home (structural, heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, roof, and exterior) and to provide a general understanding of the property’s current condition.

At Keller Engineering Engineers, we provide home inspections by professional engineers who are licensed by one of the 12 licensing bodies in Canada and adhere to the highest legal and ethical standards.
