Two Certified Inspectors on each Inspection !
With a Certified Master Inspector, and a Certified Professional Inspector on each Muskoka home, cottage or commercial inspection we will ease your concerns when you are buying, or selling. We understand that your schedule is hectic and that a real estate transaction is time-sensitive. That’s why we offer appointments seven days a week using our superior two-man approach. Whether you’re a home buyer or home seller, a real estate investor or a Realtor, we’ll get you the information you need when you need it so that you will have the answers to the four main questions property buyers or sellers need to make a confident decision.
What, if any, are the issues with the property?
What is the cause and effect of the issue?
What is involved in fixing the issue?
What is the importance of the issue in the overall picture of the property?
These photos from three different Muskoka inspections show: (1) A sagging doof deck from moisture intrusion into decking,
(2) Incorrectly and underbuilt beam from a homeowner renovation no permits (3) Mould on underside of sheathing from poorly designed roof structure with incorrectly done venting.
Experience That Works for You
Most home inspectors cannot answer the last two critical questions. They simply do not have the years of hands on practical experience in the building industry and many hundreds of hours of inspection specific education we do. With a combined five decades of experience in home-building and renovations from the ground up, as well as thousands of property inspections for satisfied clients, Done Right gets it done right. We can spot problems with materials, installation and workmanship that other inspectors might miss.
As members of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors—InterNACHI—We perform through inspections as laid out in the InterNACHI Standards of Practice for homes and commercial inspections, which exceeds those of: CAHPI, the Canadian Association of Home & Property Inspectors; OAHI, the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors; and ASHI, the American Society of Home Inspectors. We also abide by a strict Code of Ethics, which puts our clients’ interests first.
As a Certified Master Inspector®, Bruce has earned the inspection industry’s highest professional designation and we have other experts on call, when necessary, such as a licensed electrician and licensed HVAC technician, who also abide by our standards and ethics. Let Done Right put its experience and expertise to work for you and be assured that there will be no big and costly surprises from undisclosed issues the property may have.
Done Right provides home inspections, cottage inspections, log and timberframe structure inspections, and commercial property inspections. We inspect a variety of specialty properties and outbuildings, including farms and bunkhouses, barns and riding arenas, boathouses, boat lifts, docks and more.
We also offer: Functional Septic System Inspections, Radon Testing, Mould Inspections, Lead Inspections, and Asbestos Inspections, with fast turnaround for sample testing and results from North America's largest accredited sampling lab.

Our Inspection Report
Our clients receive a detailed yet easy-to-read report with written explainations and digital images of any deficiencies. A sumary page lists the issues found along with the page and section the issue is located in for easy reference.
Reports are sent out the next day via email in PDF format so clients can click on and enlarge photos for detailed viewing.
Our report contains recommendations to correct or monitor any deficiencies noted in the inspection report and in addition links to articles relating to any defiencies found are included as well.
Normally we take between 160 and 350 images of the building as a documentary of the structure on the day of inspection and all of the images are added to the end of the report for our client's future reference.
