Arrange for a reliable pre-purchase home inspection in Banff and Canmore with Alpine Summit Home Inspections. The services we offer include:
Buying a home could be the biggest financial investment of your life. For your peace of mind our Certified Master Inspector® will perform a thorough inspection of the home from top to bottom following the InterNACHI Standards of Practice. The general areas covered in a standard inspection are:

All inspections include a scan with a thermal imaging camera to look for hidden water leaks and insulation issues and to verify the operation of in-slab and in-floor heating systems.
