Cottage inspections services

Cottage inspection Ottawa  have a distinct charm but they also come with special risks. It is essential to include cottage inspection in your offer to purchase a cottage property. Cottages range from new construction to century log or stone construction. Expect anything and everything from basements with dirt floors to innovative energy systems. Many Ottawa cottages have alternate heating and/or energy systems such as wood, pellet, wind, solar or photovoltaic. Most cottages properties have a septic system and well. (Ground-source heat pumps may require an additional well.)


Cottage Inspections Ottawa Valley

We have a few tips that might help you when opening your cottage this so you do not have to call a Ottawa home inspector.

TIP 1 . If the cottage is not used all year round you should not pump the septic tank in the fall. In the spring when the frost comes out of the ground it may lift and damage the tank and connection. You will now have an environmental clean-up on your hands.

TIP 2. If the cottage is a 2 or 3 season style dwelling you should be looking for low-point-drains. These should be installed on both the hot and cold water lines and they are used to drain the water out of the system to avoid freezing and damaging the pipes over the winter months.

TIP 3. W.E.T.T. Wood Energy Transfer Technology is applied to cottages that have wood burning appliances. Most insurance companies will require a certificate of compliance that your wood burning devices are installed correctly.
