What People Are Saying

I was happy that I got my house inspected from Seacliff Home Inspections. He knows his stuff and was very thorough in his job. As a first time home buyer, I felt confident after getting my house inspected. Howard not only found issues in the house but also gave tips on the way to keep the house in good shape. . . At the end, he sent a very professional report highlighting issues, and provided web links to further understand issues found during the home inspection. I would definitely recommend Howard to anyone who is looking for a good home inspector.

Homeowner Tip Of The Day

Safety Glass

Safety glass is a stronger, safer version of ordinary glass. It is often used in locations where harm due to breakage is likely, such as in cars and low windows. • Laminated safety glass is commonly found in car windshields.

Tempered safety glass fractures parallel to its edge rather than perpendicular, and when it shatters, it breaks into small, rounded, generally safe pieces. It is created by heating glass to a high temperature and then rapidly cooling it to produce compression stress fractures on the surface, while retaining tension in the center. The glass is several times stronger as a result of the process, and it can withstand significantly higher temperatures. Tempered safety glass is commonly found in rear and side car windows, computer monitors, and storm doors. Unlike laminated safety glass, it cannot be custom-cut once it is formed.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging Seacliff Inspections is able to offer clients the ability to see "more then what the naked eye can see". Thermal imaging cameras, also known as infrared cameras, are able to detect very small differences in temperature. This gives us the ability to "see" behind drywall, above ceilings and the framing around windows and doors. We are able to then take a picture of the area in question and highlight the various defects not normally visible to the naked eye. Move your cursor over the picture to the right to see how the room normally looks.

Mold Check

Molds are microscopic fungi. Molds come from the same family that includes mushrooms and yeasts. Molds grow and reproduce quickly. Some molds can be useful - penicillin comes from one type of mold, and other types of mold are used in the manufacture of foods and beverages.

Molds can also be destructive, causing significant damage to many materials, such as paper, cardboard and fabrics.

Mold can affect your health and your family's health. Health experts say that molds can cause allergic reactions, such as sneezing and watery eyes. More serious illnesses can occur depending on the type of mold, the amount and degree of exposure and the health condition of a home's occupants.

Seacliff Inspections performs a visual mold examination of the property with every home inspection.

Radon In Your Home

radon periodic table Radon is a colourless, tasteless and odourless gas that can seep undetected into your home and emit ionizing radiation which can cause lung cancer. Protect your family by testing your home for radon.

What Is Radon?
Radon is a radioactive gas found naturally in the environment. It is produced naturally by the breakdown of uranium in the soil, rock and water. As a gas, radon can move freely through the soil enabling it to escape to the atmosphere or seep into buildings. Since radon can't be seen, smelled, or tasted, it can get into your home undetected.

In outdoor air, radon is diluted to such low concentrations that it is not a concern. But in confined spaces like your house, radon can build up to high levels and pose a health risk. Radon levels are generally highest in basements and crawl spaces because these areas are nearest to the source and are usually poorly ventilated.

Aluminum Wiring

aluminum wiring Aluminum wiring was used extensively in homes throughout North America between the mid 1960's until the late 1970's, primarily due to the high cost of copper wiring at the time. It is estimated that there are over 450,000 homes in Canada that are entirely wired with aluminum.

What's Wrong with Aluminum Wiring?
Reported problems are mostly related to the overheating and failure of aluminum wiring terminations, sometimes resulting in a fire. Some studies have shown that homes with aluminum wiring are 55 times more likely to have existing fire hazard conditions compared to homes with copper wire. Problems are due to aluminums tendency to expand and contract at a higher rate than copper, and to oxidize at termination points resulting in overheating and failure. As such, it is incompatible with devices designed for use with copper wiring.

The Good News
The good news is that because all the problems that occur with aluminum wiring occur at the devices and junction boxes, there is usually no need to rewire the house. The wire running through the walls is normally in good shape and does not need to be replaced.
