HMP Home Inspectors understand that buying a home is a major, complex, and very personal decision. You must consider the price and the various appeals of neighbourhood, style, size, floor plan, etc. Their home inspections help you when the fundamental questions arise – "Is the house itself sound? What kinds of repairs may be required, and what can reasonably be anticipated in the way of costs?"
The decision to purchase, and in some cases the purchase price, may be affected by all these factors and HMP can give you the answers. Their professional home inspections are thorough and they encourage you to attend the inspection. It represents an excellent opportunity for you to familiarize yourself with the property's technical features. HMP Home Inspectors will provide an expert and unbiased assessment of the house itself - all you really need to know about all the things you're least apt to be familiar with. Let their Nationally certified HMP Home Inspectors help you understand your home purchase.

Meet Steve Pockett of HMP Home Inspections
My father had me in construction from the age of 13. Working the summers as a labourer. As I got older, my tasks took me to building and General Contracting. I had spent most of my working years self employed in the industry. I decided to become a Home Inspector in 2005. I then graduated from Carson Dunlop. 5 years ago I joined PHPIC and became an NHI. I have performed over 4000 building inspections. I am very happy to be a part of the PHPIC group and the journey we are taking towards licensing Home Inspectors.

WHAT IS A HOME INSPECTION?
A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from the roof to the foundation. Having a home inspected is like giving it a physical check-up. If problems or symptoms are found, the inspector may recommend further evaluation.
WHAT DOES IT INCLUDE?
The standard home inspector's report will review the condition of the home's heating system, central air conditioning system (temperature permitting), interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement, and visible structure.
WHY DO I NEED A HOME INSPECTION?
The purchase of a home is probably the largest single investment you will ever make. You should learn as much as you can about the condition of the property and the need for any major repairs before you buy, so that you can minimize unpleasant surprises and difficulties.
Of course, a home inspection also points out the positive aspects of a home, as well as the maintenance that will be necessary to keep it in good shape. After the inspection, you will have a much clearer understanding of the property you are about to purchase.
If you are already a home owner, a home inspection may be used to identify problems in the making and to learn preventive measures which might avoid costly future repairs. If you are planning to sell your home, you may wish to have an inspection prior to placing your home on the market. This will give you a better understanding of conditions which may be discovered by the buyer's inspector, and an opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in better selling condition.
