Is A Good Registered Home Inspector equal to A Large House Inspection Company?Homes are usually our most precious and jealously guarded material possessions. We don’t buy or sell houses everyday (unless it’s your business). Selling a house (or for that matter buying one) is a serious matter which needs deliberation and loads of formalities to complete. The most important, perhaps (before buying or selling a house) is to get it inspected by a registered home inspector .

Fortunately, you have a wide pool of Ontario home inspectors to choose from if you are looking for a certified home inspector. There are many who work independently while other licensed home inspectors work for Large or small home inspection companies.
We do not need to emphasize the importance of an inch by inch house inspection (for sellers and buyer alike). The next important decision is to opt for whom; an independent registered home inspector or a large house inspection company.
As a matter of principle, it is more about personal choices, preference and circumstances relating to an individual case. Both choices has its own merits and demerits. However, there might be some serious pitfalls in hiring large Ontario house inspection companies and some of them are as follows:

Why is a professional registered home inspector preferred?

  • The most serious problem in dealing with large Ontario and Toronto house inspection companies relates to the uncertainty about the actual Ontario house inspector who is going to inspect your property. Large Toronto house inspection companies have a huge clientele and employ a number of Toronto home inspectors. They can assign anyone from their employees for your house inspection in Toronto. You would not have much say in the process of selection of the licensed house inspector neither you would be in a position to ascertain and verify the credentials of the assigned house inspector that whether he is a registered home inspector or not.home inspection brampton cost
  • Dealing with an independent certified home inspector or small to medium size house inspection firm can give you a chance to verify the qualifications and background of each of that Toronto home inspectors. Smaller house inspection companies post profiles of their members on their website, this allows you the liberty to pick the right or desired licensed home inspector for your property.
  • Larger companies invariably have a high volume of clients. Such companies hire a minimum number of employees to reduce business costs and the employed inspectors are mostly overworked. It is most often a case that an Ontario home inspector has to carry out multiple inspections daily to cover up his daily assignments for the hiring company.
