Pillar To Post™ is always committed to the health and well-being of our clients and homeowners, as well as our inspectors. This is especially true during this time of Covid-19. We remain highly focused on providing the highest quality home inspection while adhering to the strict safety and cleanliness guidelines provided by the CDC and local governments. While our processes may have changed, our commitment to Ensuring Confident Homeownership has not. Our job is not complete until you no longer have questions concerning the home you have asked Pillar To Post™ to inspect.

We are professional home inspectors in the Halifax Regional Municipality, also called the HRM locally, and we have been helping home buyers, home sellers, and real estate professionals assess the true condition of a home for more than twenty-five years. We strive to provide only the best home inspections possible, and this is why our customers trust our knowledge and experience. We value this trust very highly, and we believe that clarity about the home’s condition greatly reduces the stress of making the buying decision, and often saves our clients a lot of money.

Highly Regarded Industry Leader

  • We are highly regarded leaders in the home inspection industry, and considered to be one of the best in the Halifax Regional Municipality.
  • Our experience extends to more than nine thousand home inspections, and covers all types and ages of homes.

We are chosen at times by the real estate industry to conduct Continuing Education Courses, so that real estate agents gain an understanding of the home inspection process and learn how to more accurately assess a home’s condition.

Professional Home Inspection Services

We focus closely on our general home inspection practice, but we also have associations with many other skilled professionals that provide specialized advice, such as well water, septic, radon and environmental testing, that may be required on occasion.

Our services are very thorough and friendly, and we are pleased to take the time to answer any questions that may come up. We encourage our customers to be present at the home inspection, so that they see firsthand the points of interest raised by our report.

The home inspector will typically spend between two to three hours performing a complete inspection. Once this is finished a detailed report and photos will be provided on site, in a convenient binder that makes it easy to access and store these documents. We will also email our clients an electronic version of the report, usually before we leave the property.  Areas of concern will be photographed, so that our customers also have a helpful visual record.
