James from Frontline Home Inspections came by to do an inspection for us as we are nearing the end of the 1 year warranty period. Our builder has been very poor at responding to do anything that needs fixed, repaired and deficient or damaged when we took possession so we have been wondering how to proceed with these issues. The delinquency list was just getting longer and we were concerned with what other things we don't know about or what the underlying problems are. We have been very frustrated with our builder whom has no integrity and no desire to do anything for us since he got paid, so now just keeps telling us stories and does nothing to rectify his poor craftsmanship and damage done (we bought a spec home so didn't build this home ourselves as it was 95% done at the time). Beware the builders in Kinniburgh in Chestermere, lots of complaints from neighbours on many builders here. James is extremely knowledgeable on home inspection and very quick to see things that our realtor's inspector either missed or failed to mention to us prior to us buying this home. His knowledge on builders, the building codes, warranty, and the whole process of relationship between all parties is eye opening on how the system really works and what you can expect for your efforts so you don't waste your time and energy on avenues that might just not get you anywhere. There are many frustrated home owners out there with poor builders and you might not know whether to go thru warranty, get a lawyer, or what path to take that you might have success at -- Frontline Home Inspectors can help you figure that out, provide you with the information and details you require to pursue what you want to do to. We are definitely more educated and have a more clear direction on what we need to do going forward because of our meeting with James. There is a basic inspection they can do or a more detailed type that would help you in a lawsuit, or at least let you know the real reason for deficiencies and problems in your home from shortcuts and cheap routes the builders have taken. I would use him on all future inspections as he has integrity and is looking out for your interest in all aspects, I can't say that about any other inspectors I have used in the past as they all seem to have close ties to the realtors you hire and their interests likely sway away from you, the client. Highly recommend for inspection on new and old homes as he will ensure you are informed as possible to make that large $$ purchase on a home.
