As a lifelong resident of the Ottawa Region, I know first-hand the difficult climate our homes are exposed to. From scorching hot sun in summer to frost and heavy snow in winter, we certainly experience it all. Homes are designed and built to withstand these extremes. Even so, all homes, new and old, have some deficiencies. My job is to find and report these deficiencies to you, to educate and instruct you on the condition of the home and provide a detailed final report. With this information, you can have confidence in the important decision you will be making.


I am a Mechanical Engineer educated at Carleton University and have over 27 years of Project Engineering experience in the private sector. I have been involved in home renovations for over 30 years. I have been mentored by Certified Master Home Inspector Mr. Marcel Gratton of On The Level Inspection. When you combine this with first class Certified Home Inspector training by Carson Dunlop, that adds up to piece-of-mind.
