After years of doing renovations and witnessing all types of DIY disasters, I wanted to help new and experienced home buyers avoid some of these costly mistakes. Unofficially I have been helping home buyers since 2000. Officially I started YEG Inspections in 2016 and have been helping new and experienced home buyers ever since. First was meeting all the Alberta government home inspection requirements and getting the proper education. These education requirements are all listed below.

“Now my mission is too help home buyers make good decisions about the home they are purchasing with a punctual, easy to read report at a competitive price.”

Larry Strawson

Born in Alberta on a large farm I was raised with a good work ethic and strong family values. Outdoors is still my passion and I try to enjoy it cycling, hiking, camping, golfing, and playing baseball whenever I can. Now with 27 years of experience in renovations, construction, managing rental properties and now a trained, licensed, and certified home inspector. I know the importance of finding a property that will not be a risk to your safety and investment.

My Promise to You

 
Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won’t meet me until your inspection appointment–after you’ve hired me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing. One thing that’s certain is that a home inspection requires a lot of work. Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s effort. If you honour me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.
