In addition to being an experienced and Certified Professional Inspector from InterNACHI, the world's largest home inspection organization, I have an additional 15 years' experience in Building Operations & Maintenance, where I gained my extensive knowledge of the interdependency of various building systems such as plumbing, electrical & HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning). Previous to this, I wore the "green shirt" at a major home improvement retailer, where I developed my passion for buildings, construction and helping homeowners live in a safe and healthy home, all within their budget constraints. I have also volunteered with many community organizations, most notably Habitat for Humanity Canada. With my knowledge of modern building construction and system design & maintenance it is my aim to assist everyone with their goal of having a safe, healthy, cost and energy efficient home to live in.
