One of the most valuable components of a Skyview Inspection 360 Ltd. Report is in the details. We don’t just indicate a problem, rather we explain the problem, why it is an issue, what needs to done to remedy the issue and we indicate a time frame for the remedy .  This is a great advantage because you can ask questions and have the inspector point out the actual issue to you in the home. This will give you great insight and understanding of any issues that are found.

Electronic report: Skyview Inspection 360 Ltd. uses a computerized reporting system that is complete with many photos of all issues and concerns . Your Inspection Report comes to you in a downloadable PDF form that can be printed to.

You are welcome to be present at the Inspection. However, if you are unavailable, the inspector will contact you post inspection and provide you with a verbal summary, usually the same day, and a formal report will be sent to you later . You are encouraged to contact your inspector if you have any questions after you have received your Inspection Report.

Your Report comes to you in a form that is easily understood. Each component of the house is inspected and noted in the report which is divided into easy to follow sections. These sections contain all of the detailed information about the inspectors findings.

Digital Photos: Many digital photos are taken by your inspector at the time of the inspection. These are mainly in areas that are deficient, in need of repair or of specific interest to your inspection. Photos inserted into your Report add clarity and can be especially useful to clients that are unable to attend the inspection. Feel free to ask your inspector to take photos of things you want to see–the yard, pool, garden, front entry, bedrooms, window coverings or cabinets . We don’t mind.

You also get a summary page of any items that the inspector found that need attention. The summary section is great for seeing the issues all in one spot. We welcome your questions-they are ALL important.

Warranty

Many single Family homes and multi-family buildings have warranties in place to cover premature failures in building design and components. As a direct result of the “Leaky Condo Crisis” the Home Owners Protection Office (HPO) was borne and the Home Owner Protection Act which required all residential buildings build in BC since 1998 to have third party warranty coverage. This is commonly referred to as the 2-5-10 year warranty; 2-years on labour and materials, 5-years on building envelope and 10-years on the structure.

As these dates approach; 2-5-10 years, it is important to file warranty claims for failed items before the deadline is past; otherwise the warranty company will not accept a claim that it past the due date. The home owner or the strata corporation is then left to repair the failed item at its own cost.

Skyview Inspection 360 Ltd. offers a warranty inspection to uncover failed and or deteriorated items before the warranty deadline is up. An inspection is conducted and a report written of all items under warrantee with attention to those items for which the warranty period/deadline will be expiring soon; 4-6 months, this gives time for the owner or strata corporation to file a claim and have the item(s) fixed while still under warranty. What a great idea; this is like taking your car to the mechanic just before the 100,000 km warranty expires to have a thorough review of the engine, drive train and exhaust system. The warranty company fixes any problems, if you wait until after 100,000 kms, then you pay.

A Warranty Inspection and Report will provide you with the necessary information to take advantage your warranty and ensure that you don’t miss out!
