With over 28,000 home inspections performed in the Ottawa and Gatineau region since 1982, Eric and Marc Parent bring over 60 years of combined experience as full-time home inspectors. We’ve inspected homes, cottages, condos, restaurants, retail stores, shopping malls, automotive service stations, even a private airfield! With backgrounds and a wealth of experience in structural and environmental engineering consulting, we have the knowledge and experience to diagnose even the most complex issues with local buildings, from advanced geotechnical problems, hydrostatic overpressure, to simple beam deflections. As a teacher at heart, Eric loves to spread his knowledge. Combining this attribute with his adequate writing skills, Eric publishes articles on various topics related to home repairs, maintenance, and the home inspection industry. If you have a suggestion for a topic, or simply have a question which needs answering, please contact us anytime. We’re always happy to help.
