Residential and Commercial Building Inspections
AusCan Building Inspections was established in March of 2011 after 3 years prior experience sub contracting to a local franchise company. As an independent inspector I have more flexibility to offer customized services to Clients.
The company name is derived from combining Australia with Canada.
My Philosophy for the last 20 years, whether in construction or Building Inspecting is simple…
- “Do it right the first time.
- What would I expect if I was hiring and inspector, then don’t offer anything less to a client.
- Be honest and up front with clients and realtors.
- Report the facts in a non alarming manner.
- Share my knowledge and experience in the construction industry to aid clients in every possible way”
