Perry Campbell launched his home inspection service in May, 2015, and he has already seen a few things that would make any homeowner with a sense of self-preservation cringe.
"There are a lot of people that do their own renovations, but aren’t knowledgeable when it comes to structure and electrical,” Campbell said. “You find a lot of safety issues with the do-it-yourself jobs during inspections."
Campbell, a Metcalfe resident since 2002, ended his career as an operations manager for a freight forwarder and began training with A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections in 2014. He said his decision to open a home inspection franchise was inspired partly by his own experience renovating his home, and by what he identified as a need for more home inspection services in Metcalfe.
