How We Can Help You
Having a residential inspection has become a key step in today's real estate transaction. Whether a high-rise condo, adjoining town-home, multi-unit dwelling or a large estate;
The BrickKicker has the tools and resources to educate our clients in making smart decisions.
Commercial inspections involve a visual examination or readily objective visual examination of readily accessible areas, physical structure and operating systems of the space.
This process occurs in a timely and efficient manner, giving clients the peace of mind to continue on with business.
In today's world, consumers are more educated about the potential of harmful elements found in and around the places we live and work.
The BrickKicker offers a series of different testing services that can be ordered with your inspection.
Often called single-detached-dwellings are generally those privately owned and maintained and built for one family. Across the country there are many different types of single family homes with many different amenities and building materials.
The BrickKicker maintains high training standards to keep up with the latest building methods, and living standards to provide a detailed and educational inspection.
Condominium and Townhome units typically fall under some sort of management, however that doesn't mean The BrickKicker won't be there to guide you through the makeup of the building, how things work and where.
Generally, a condo is one unit within a larger building which has full coverage or control on exterior items, whereas a Townhome is owned with control of the exterior and interior given to the owner of the unit.
Generally, a multi-unit building is considered to have individual residences contained within one building. Under typical industry standards, a multi-unit building with 4 or less units is residential, while 5 units or more is classified as commercial.
Regardless of the size of the building, The BrickKicker knows how to navigate these buildings and understands the methods used in which to maintain or run a multi-unit building.
Other Services We Specialize In
Many homes across the country are subject to shared occupancy with pest, mainly for shelter but others may use the home as a food source. It is only through a thorough and professional pest inspection that one can be confident any unwanted visitors do not set up shop within the home. These tests and inspections are often provided as a specific service through an outside professional source and considered beyond the scope of the standard inspection or home inspection license.
For an additional fee, The BrickKicker inspector will help identify any potentially hazardous or mechanically deficient issues with your pool and/ or spa. This does not include entering the pool to look at the liner but we will inspect the barrier fence, installed pool equipment, and filter system. Recreation equipment is typically not included but may be upon request.
Thermal imaging or the use of infrared cameras has become a very widely accepted practice of home inspectors. It is yet another tool to allow The BrickKicker to help you purchase your home intelligently. The thermal camera can help identify thermal openings in your home, possible plumbing leaks in the walls, potentially damaging cracks leaks in the foundation or even issues under low sloped or flat roofs. Unlike many of our competitors, we do not charge extra for using the tools that we have on hand. IR thermography is included with every home inspection.
Replacing the main sewer line can be one of the most expensive items to repair on a home and unfortunately is it not part of a home inspection. This is also something that may not be covered by your homeowner's insurance. Unfortunately, we only have one sewer camera (a good one will cost over $4000) and it is not always available. If you are interested in having the main sewer line inspected, talk to your inspector. If the house is 20+ years old and on city sewer, it is a great candidate for a sewer scope. If there is an accessible cleanout, we can have one done within a day or two. If we do not have access, we may recommend contacting a licensed plumber that offers this service and they can pull a toilet to access the sewer line.
“A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption of our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider of our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favour by serving him. He is doing us a favour by giving us the opportunity to do so.” -Mahatma Gandhi
