Welcome to Sunny Alberta

Glad I didn’t have any inspections booked for downtown Calgary…

I was thinking about you guys today Dan.

Keep dry Danny. We’ll send some rubber boots and BBQ right away. Albertan’s don’t let a little rain ruin their day.

This should cut down on inspection times as I won’t have to take out my moisture meter…everythings wet…

In a few short days we went from “Hey Martha, the lawns are sure looking good this year” to " Hey Martha, where’s my hammer, its time to start building that ark"

I feel for you guys and gals.

I can imagine that once the flood water has subsided it’s going to make your inspections problematic.

In order to protect your E&O backsides, I guess you are going to have to say that a further inspection is required by a <insert structural engineer, electrician, HVAC contractor> to ensure water hasn’t damaged the <insert component>. Once the public understands that, what is going to sell them on a home inspection for $300-400 that is going to cost them a further $500-$1000 bucks anyway.

If I was an informed consumer, (and I guess it wont’ take long for them to get informed) I’d say, bugger it! I might just as well call in a <insert profession> from the get-go, and if the house is sound then call in a home inspector, or just not buy in the flooded areas.

As I said, I feel for you guys and gals. Maybe there’s salvation in marketing pre-sale agreements now.

Has there been any experience from Inspectors in Manitoba that sees regular flooding in this respect? Their perspective of the consequences could be really helpful to you guys and gals.

can anyone tell me where I could find the internachi home inspection contract approved by service alberta
