My wife and I purchased our first resale house just shy of its first year of being built. After moving in, we had approximately 5 weeks to submit defects to Tarion so they could be fixed while the house was still under warranty. Aside from noticing some nail pops, I was not aware of any other defects.
We were advised to engage a home inspector to “walk through” the house looking for areas that could be fixed. We were referred to Alan Glushko, a home inspector with Allmax Home Inspection and Property Services. Alan not only walked through the house, but he went on and under it as well. Not only did he identify numerous nail pops (compared to the 6 that I found), but he also noticed an electrical problem, structural wall damage and leakage areas that could have caused severe future damage had it gone unnoticed.
The small investment with Alan saved us thousands of dollars in fixes that we would have been forced to incur.
I would highly recommend Alan, not only to existing home owners but to purchasers of new homes as well.

Thanks for the praise Jay.
New houses require a different outlook then older re-sale homes.
More builder defeciencies and building related items.
Most of the time i am finding several small items that can really add up if you were responsible to repair them on your own.
I was glad to help and hope you enjoy your new home.
