Good Job for a Fair Price
“Andrew arrived promptly, quickly understood our requirements, and immediately got to work with a will. He worked non-stop until the job was completed. He was a pleasure to deal with and we feel we got a very good job for a fair price.
Andrew told us he is skilled at tackling most 'handy man', and we've put his number in our contacts list in case we have other needs.
Thanks Andrew. It was nice to meet you.”

Great Ontario Home Inspection offers highly trained technicians in Scarborough, Ontario to identify building defects that often go undetected. We use advanced infrared thermography techniques to look for potential threats to your house. One of the best tools used for this purpose is a forward-looking infrared camera, which is non-invasive and provides a new dimension of knowledge to the inspector.
Infrared inspections are effective in identifying moisture seepage issues, airflow related issues (e.g. heat loss), electrical overheating issues, poor quality construction, and many more building-related issues. Our services are as follows:
Our technicians will inspect your home thoroughly to rule out any potential threat. They will review your main electrical distribution panel and sub-panels, main entrances to premises, a sample of electrical outlets and switches, and a scan of the hot water and heating system in the utility room to ensure that all devices are in proper working condition.
We also perform a detailed home inspection along with the basic inspection. The detailed inspection includes a scan of the home including sampling the interior of each room and the building envelope. We use specialized equipment to perform the detailed scan so that nothing is left undetected.
An infrared camera is used to confirm the operation of in-floor radiant heating systems in all zones. It is the only way to effectively confirm heat distribution on radiant heat systems. Therefore, this service is automatically added to the full inspection.
