In response to the public health situation related to coronavirus (COVID-19), we are diligently monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), Health Canada and medical professionals to ensure we are taking the necessary steps to protect our customers. During this time, wherever possible, Pillar To Post remains open and committed to providing a best-in-class home inspection that helps clients turn a house into a home.

Our Promise:

  1. If clients/agents do not feel comfortable attending the inspection, we will deliver the report and/or review the report by phone.
  2. We will reschedule the inspection if the inspector is showing signs of illness.
  3. We will clean our hands thoroughly prior to and during the inspection.
  4. We will keep a safe distance, not shaking hands or elbow bumping.
  5. Whenever possible, we will wipe down doorknobs, faucet handles and work surfaces.
  6. We will take all other prudent steps to protect our home inspectors, Realtors, our clients and homeowners from the spread of COVID-19.
