Why Hire Me?


I use a borescope when my inspection mirror doesn't quite give me what I'm looking for.

Thermal imaging can reveal many things.  It can also reveal almost nothing, or be misleading.  It all depends on who is holding the camera.

Hiring a home inspector can be challenging;  You're placing your faith in the knowledge, ability, and professionalism of someone you've never met.  Sadly, despite mandatory Alberta licensing requirements, not all inspectors are the same.  Acumen Inspections grew from a realization that a quality home inspection needs to be conducted with thorough attention to detail, and that a quality home inspection report should be authoured and edited in a professional manner.

I approach a home inspection in the same way I approach an engineering problem:

  • Stand back, assess, note anomalies.
  • Move into a detailed, thorough analysis.
  • Rely on a deep knowledge base that is continually renewed and upgraded.
  • Never assume anything.
  • Above all, pay attention to the details!

When you hire me to perform your home inspection you can relax in knowing that the inspection process will be thorough.
