An Optimum Inspection provides a thorough, detailed, and professional evaluation of your property’s accessible features, major systems and their components such as: structure, Electrical, Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, Roof & Chimneys, Interior, Exterior, Insulation & Ventilation, Lot Grading, Basement Humidity and is performed in accordance with the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors (OAHI) Standards of Practice.
Optimum Inspection utilizes infrared, thermal imaging equipment.
Thermal imaging equipment is able to detect what no eye can see - minor variations in temperature that can signal electrical or moisture problems. This inspection does not include a detailed thermographic scan of the home.
Thermal imaging reveals surface temperature variations of the building, which can be interpreted by inspectors to identify problems in structure, moisture content and air leakage. It can also be used to find hidden heating and cooling losses, moisture intrusion, inadequate or non-existent insulation, plumbing leaks and poor construction. Early correction of these conditions can prevent more extensive damage in the future.
Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI)
Builders are required to conduct a Pre-Delivery Inspection of all freehold homes and condominium units
An Optimum Inspection’s Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) is conducted at the time a newly built home is transferred from the builder to the new homeowner..
At the mandatory pre-delivery inspection, builders must complete a standardized pre-delivery form that contains all of the information that is contained in Tarion's standard Pre-Delivery Form, which can be found at www.tarion.com.
It is important during your pre-delivery inspection that you identify and document any items that are damaged, missing, incomplete or not operating properly and that everything has been completed according to your Agreement of Purchase and Sale.
Optimum Inspection will accompany you as you walk through your new home with the builder's representative and will identify and document any visual deficiencies in the home. Features such as roofing (if safely accessible), insulation, heating / air conditioning (based on season) and ventilation systems and electrical systems will be inspected thoroughly to ensure your new home's major systems and its components are working properly.
