Townhouse Inspections

Townhouse Inspections

A townhouse shares similar structural elements with a detached house.
Common elements managed by strata will also be inspected in our townhouse inspections.

Having home inspections may uncover special issues, inside and out, to protect you from any unexpected costs.

A townhouse shares the same (or very similar) structural elements with a detached house. Some of the items such as the roofing system, exterior claddings, windows are managed by a strata management company, like a condo unit. We inspect your townhouse unit just like a detached house. To maximize your interest, common elements managed by strata will also be inspected. Our professional insight makes sure you understand the overall conditions of your property. A townhouse inspection is equally as important as a single-family home inspection.
