FAQ

Questions are the root of all answers. If you have a question that's not answered here, please contact us using the form below.
Are you open during Covid-19?

Yes.

RISE halted operations for a few weeks to do our part in helping to slow the spread of Covid-19 and we are now up and running again with a few changes to our process.

Until further notice, all inspections will be conducted without the buyer or seller being present in order to limit personal contact. We wear appropriate personal protection equipment while at the home and disinfect our tools between every inspection.

We are committed to operating safely in an effort to help protect the entire community. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this time and are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Where do you operate?
RISE is located in Oshawa and would be happy to join you in Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Brooklin, Oshawa, Courtice, or Bowmanville for your home inspection.
How long does an inspection take?
Typically, around 2.5 – 3 hours. This can vary based on the size of the home and how accessible the mechanical systems are. The report is then created offsite and emailed to you within 24 hours.
Should I follow along?

We currently request that buyers DO NOT attend the home inspection.

Normally, we encourage you to join us through the inspection process to hear and see the inspector’s findings but due to Covid-19 and social distancing, we are limiting attendance to be only the inspector and the buyer’s representative.

Our inspector would be happy to answer any questions after you receive your report.

What do you look at?
We inspect all of the major systems of the home which include:
• Roof
• Exterior
• Structure
• Electrical
• Heating
• Cooling
• Plumbing
• Insulation
• Interior
How much does it cost?
Our fees start as low as $375, and are based on the size of the home. For most homes in our area, the fee will range from $399 – $499.
What's included in the fee?
• Valuable education on the home being purchased/sold.
• Comprehensive report, filled with helpful photos, illustrations, and links to relevant information.
• Technical support from your home inspector for as long as you own the home.
What kind of report will I get?
We use HORIZON, a comprehensive web-based reporting system that produces an exceptional, easy-to-read report. The report includes not only a description of the home but documents our observations and recommendations. The report includes colour illustrations and photographs, as well as links to relevant reference materials.
