We Are a BGRS Authorized Home Inspector

We have proudly served our relocating Canadian Forces members for decades. As an authorized BGRS home inspector, we take care of the billing for you by invoicing BGRS directly for our services. We take great pride in helping those who serve our country, therefore we donate a portion of the proceeds of every BGRS inspection to a local armed forces charitable foundation.

Locally Educated Home Inspectors with Local Knowledge

We are proudly local. Our knowledge of the region’s geotechnical characteristics provides us with the expertise to diagnose unique structural issues related to our region.
