Inspecting Greater Edmonton Homes for Over 20 Years

Alberta Property Inspection Ltd. (API) offers residential property inspections for the Greater Edmonton Area. We use thermal imaging technology to assist in the accuracy of the inspection.


Found the Home of your Dreams?

Get the information you need to make a wise decision from a competent, professional Registered Home Inspector. RHI designation assures that the home inspector has demonstrated the ability to meet or exceed the CAHPI standards of practice and adheres to the CAHPI strict code of ethics. The Standards of Practice provide inspection guidelines and the code of ethics stresses the home inspector’s responsibility to act in a strictly fair, impartial and professional manner.


A professional home inspection is visual and non-destructive and represents a snapshot in time. The home inspector will determine the condition of your potential new home, and then present the findings in a detailed comprehensive computer report.


API is an Industry leader, and our years of experience is our biggest asset. We are an independent company, 100% Canadian, Alberta owned and operated.


Pre-listing Inspection

Thinking of selling your home? There are many benefits to having your home inspected before listing. A professional seller’s pre-listing inspection can help you identify critical areas of concern up-front. A pre-listing inspection will give you the ability to fix any problems (if you choose) and deal with any issues before the home is put on the market so that defects do not turn into a stumbling block later on.

A pre-listing inspection can provide peace of mind to both parties involved and help in smoothing the way to a successful real estate transaction.


New Home Warranty Inspection

Is your New Home Warranty about to expire? If you have just moved into a new home, consider protecting your investment with a professional, impartial new home warranty inspection. API recommends this inspection be performed 2 months before the warranty expires. This gives the inspector the ability to document concerns noted during the occupancy period combined with deficiencies noted from the inspection. The report, containing photos of all the defects, can be passed onto the builder as one easy-to-understand package.


Q: Are Your Gas Bills High? A: Infrared Heat Loss Inspection

Do you notice drafts or cold rooms? Consider a professional infrared inspection performed by a Certified Thermographer. With the aid of a thermal imaging camera the inspector will be able to identify areas of poor insulation and air leakage. Using the computer report with IR images you can make the improvements, lowering your heat bill and making your home more comfortable. However, a stable temperature difference of 10 degrees C must exist across the building envelope. With lowering the impact of the sun and the greater the temperature differential the best results can be obtained. Therefore, API performs heat loss inspections primarily in the winter months.
