RESIDENTIAL HOME INSPECTIONS 
A detailed and comprehensive home inspection, providing a thorough examination of the interior and exterior components and major systems; including heating, insulation, foundation, slope and drainage, roofing, plumbing, electrical, ventilation, structure, and much more. Our inspection fees also include an infrared thermal imaging scan of the home at no additional cost.
 
Upon completion of the physical home inspection, additional time is allotted for a personal consultation and in-depth walkthrough with the Inspector (either in person at the site, or by telephone). Our detailed, web-based inspection report is ready for you on the day of the inspection and includes color photos, explanations and helpful recommendations about the issues that were found in the home. Ongoing support and consultation is available to you for as long as you own the home.
  
 
W.E.T.T. INSPECTIONS
A thorough and detailed visual inspection and evaluation of all types of wood burning appliance or fireplaces for the purpose of insurance or pre-purchase inspection. A Level 1 WETT Inspection will determine the safety and compliance of the wood burning appliance in accordance to current installation regulations and safety codes. This inspection includes a printed WETT report and/or completion of the insurance companies required paperwork. Residential Home Inspection reports, where a WETT Inspection is done in conjunction with the home inspection, will also contain documentary photographs suitable for insurability.


SEPTIC INSPECTIONS                                       
Like Discovery Inspection services, our Drain Doctor Septic inspections are exceedingly thorough and are performed to the highest standards by Septic Inspectors who have been trained and accredited through the Canadian Onsite Wastewater Institute. Drain Doctors is also a member in good standing with the WWCOWMA-BC, a chapter of the Western Canada Onsite Wastewater Management Association. We are pleased to be able to provide the services of our Registered Onsite Wastewater Practitioner (ROWP) for both installation and design services as well. Our expertise ensures our clients receive a thorough inspection and unbiased inspection and report, assisting them in making an informed decision with respect to their real estate purchases.

Our Septic Inspections include inspection and assessment of the tank, outlet pipes, distribution box, and septic drain field. Dye testing, infrared thermal imaging, and detailed inspection of the drain lines with a 200 ft scope camera and closed circuit television are included in this fee.
