Home Inspections for Purchasing, Maintenance, and Improvement

Exactly the right inspection to protect you at every stage.

Component inspections are useful for providing an impartial opinion on the necessity of expensive maintenance, or replacement, of specific building components or equipment.  Available inspections include:

  • Roof Inspections
  • Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning Equipment
  • Masonry Chimneys and Fireplaces

Progress inspections may take the form of scheduled weekly progress reports, or milestone inspections. Inspections follow generally accepted practices for monitoring and reporting completed work, and verifying conformance to the National Building Code of Canada, National Plumbing Code of Canada, and Canadian Electrical Code: latest editions.

An energy efficiency assessment will examine the entire building envelope and yield specific information necessary to make informed decisions about retrofits and upgrades.

New home inspections are conducted to the same standard as pre-purchase and pre-sale inspections, by an inspector trained in new home construction, design, and building codes, that is able to identify potential failures in new materials and equipment. In addition to the standard home inspection report, a list of completion items may be included where construction is substantially completed, but not ended.

Both inspections follow the CAN-CSA A770-16 Home Inspection standard, which is a non-invasive, non-destructive examination of the condition of a home. This includes structural components; exterior weatherproofing; windows and doors; roof membranes; electrical, plumbing, heating, and ventilation systems; masonry fireplaces and chimneys; fuel burning appliances and equipment; stairs; lots, grading, and drainage; and garages/sheds.

RJ Miller Building Professionals Inc. is an authorized provider of pre-purchase home inspections for the Treasury Board Secretariat, Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), and the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). The impact on moving to new work locations, or transitioning to civilian life for military and RCMP Veterans, can be challenging. Providing dependable inspections services is part of supporting individuals through those changes by helping people protect their standard of living as well as reducing risks to the cost of ownership.

Out-of-town landlords, and those requiring an impartial third party assessment, may request the standard Rental Premises Condition Report, be completed by an inspector. Additional supporting documentation in the form of site photography is included.

Individual Testimonials

I hired Robert Miller as my home inspector. I was so impressed with his quality and thorough inspection. The report he gave me, I will be able to go back over for years if I ever need to upgrade anything in the future. He took the time to explain anything and everything to me. Robert followed up multiple times with me, and still didn't hesitate to tell me to call if anymore questions needed answering, whether now or years down the road. The pictures, explanations and ratings in the report were more than i expected. I am very impressed and I highly recommend RJ Miller.

Rob helped me design a fairly intricate house renovation, involving acoustic treatment, foundation underpinning, new roofline and some other complicated features. (produced full set of drawings including specs). He had extensive knowledge on a number of disciplines and was able to bring in a civil engineer to certify the design documents. Rob was open to challenges and was helpful with revisions and when we needed to pivot designs around budget/other constraints.

Robert did our home inspection in April, and we were completely impressed by his thoroughness and friendliness. When we took occupancy, he returned at our request - and free of charge - to go over some areas of the house with us. His report is a user's manual for the house, highlighting areas to look at in the near and far term. Highly recommend!

I'm a first time home buyer and I'd recommend Rob to do anyone's home inspection. He was very thorough and when I didn't understand something, he took the time and walked me through it. The detail he put into the inspection was spectacular. Hands down Rob, you are a perfectionist at what you do. Thank you very much!!

Robert handled an inspection of a home for us while we were 2000 miles away. When you look at a home from such a distance you rely on the people 'on the ground' to provide you with professional, quality services - they are your eyes and ears. Robert did just that. His report was very thorough and professional, helping to define some key issues with the property, but also easing our minds about others. Buying any home is stressful, but buying a home from such a distance is all that tougher, and Robert has helped to make the process a lot less stressful for us! We highly recommend him!
