A word from our partner, Carson Dunlop. Long live the home.

on Mar 08, 2017

We are extremely excited to partner with AlarmForce and offer their clients a $25 discount on any home inspection completed by Carson Dunlop. As a leader in the industry since 1978, Carson Dunlop has products and services to assist clients buying, selling or already living in their property. As arguably the largest investment of your life, it’s important to protect it through knowledge and preventative maintenance and getting an inspection is the best way to do that. Generally people think of getting a home inspection when buying a property. The need to learn about the property you are purchasing and ensure that you are aware of all major costs associated with that purchase usually requires the expertise of a skilled inspector. Carson Dunlop provides an easy to understand report that includes information about necessary short-term and long-term improvements with approximate costs so you have a good idea of any necessary repairs and the estimated timeline for remediation. Their inspectors are also trained to complete thermal imaging inspections to examine concealed areas of the home for any moisture or water issues.

Many of Carson Dunlop’s clients also get a home inspection when selling their home. This prevents any unnecessary surprises should potential buyers bring their own home inspector in to view the property. You, as the seller can price the property fairly based on the knowledge of the home with Carson Dunlop’s report. You can also provide the buyer with the report demonstrating your desire to fully disclose the home’s condition, thereby expediting the sale of your property.

Another increasing trend in the home inspection business is having an inspection while living in your property. Clients want to get a status update of their home to see if there are any major items that needs to be addressed immediately or in the future. This helps homeowners plan for renovating expenses and maintaining the home rather than waiting for major issues to appear.

The company can also provide assistance with condominiums, new homes and more extensive inspections should your property require it.

As an added perk, Carson Dunlop clients also automatically become members of our Homeowner Association. This is beneficial as you receive technical advice for as long as you own the property. You can also take advantage of thousands of dollars worth of home related service discounts from the many Carson Dunlop partners. Finally, their helpful monthly newsletter provides great advice for protecting and maintaining your home. Take care of your home with the knowledge and expertise of one of the oldest and largest home inspection companies in Canada.

The company has also vetted other specialists in fields falling outside the scope of a standard home inspection. If you need a mould, asbestos, swimming pool, fireplace, termite, sewer camera or UFFI testing call Carson Dunlop and they can arrange an appointment with their specialists in these fields.

Carson Dunlop’s offices are open: Monday – Friday (8am-8pm), Saturday (8:30am-4pm) and Sunday (10am-4pm). Or you can book online: http://www.carsondunlop.com
