Conducting an EHI WETT Level 1 Inspection:
Level-1 Inspection — “Readily Accessible” Readily Accessible is defined as quickly or easily reached for inspection. A level-1 inspection does not require the use of special tools for the opening or removal of any panel, door, covering, or system components; nor (unless at the discretion of the inspector and client) would it require the use of ladders. An inspector should be able to inspect any moveable components of the fireplace, appliance or venting system that are readily accessible. Examples would be components utilized during normal operation or visual inspection by the user of the system, such as readily accessible loading doors, primary combustion chamber, ashpan doors, cleanout doors, dampers, air controls, etc.
Equipment used: HD Camera / Infrared Camera / HD Flashlights / Electrical Testers / Aerial Camera, tape measure, light, mirror, camera, magnet, pole camera and/or other basic tools should comprise (but are not limited to) the typical tools required to perform for this level of inspection
Having the best equipment is just one part of the inspection, combined with decades of rural property experience you are assured of the best possible assessment of your system

Gordon was recommended to us by our realtor to do an inspection on a detached two storey house in Edmonton that we had made an offer on, and we are so glad we chose him! He was incredibly knowledgeable, thorough, and made sure that he explained the inspection process start to finish for us. He spent three hours with us at the property completing the inspection, and then provided us with a comprehensive inspection report with photos, comments, and recommendations, which we were able to use to negotiate a better purchase price with the sellers. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gordon to anyone looking for a home inspector - his services are well worth the money!
Gord did an amazing job! He is very professional, friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make sure everything is thoroughly checked. He explains his findings as you go and answered all the questions I had, including how I could possibly fix certain things if I should so choose. His services are above and beyond what I expected, as well as, affordable...especially for the amount of knowledge he brings with him! I highly recommend Gords services to anyone looking for 'peace of mind' before purchasing their future home. Excellent service! Well done Gord!!
Very happy with the service. Gord was available and quick to respond as well as work with our schedule. He was punctual, polite, friendly and honest. He was there to give advice and personal experience/knowledge. Highly recommend for any home inspection. He did an inspection for a log home for us which he was very knowledgeable about. Thank you
I would not use anyone else but Gord from EHI. Gord took the time to thoroughly go through every single piece of the property with me. Being my first acreage purchase, I was relatively green with respect to most components of acreage living. Gord explained everything, made the proper recommendations, and was extremely professional. The use of thermal imagining and drone technology was great! Great price for the value you get.
Thanks a lot, Gord!
I had the pleasure of using Gord for the inspection on the acreage my wife and I are purchasing. Being our first acreage there was a lot of info to take in and things I didn't know about, but Gord took the time to explain everything, how things work, solutions to certain problems, it was very informative. He also has so high tech gadgets like the thermal camera and drone, which is awesome. I would not hesitate to recommend Gord to any of my friends for an inspection! Thanks a lot Gord.
Once again Gordon has gone above and beyond with a fantastic inspection, very thorough and well done, allowing me to review the inspection as though I was there myself. I feel confident with my purchase due to his thorough inspection.
