Meet Bob Tellier, your Certified Professional Inspector. I grew up in the building construction field. For over fifteen years I have been involved in various aspects of home construction, quite literally from the ground up. As an operator of heavy equipment I helped excavate and prepare the site for footings and basements, installed water supply lines, drainage systems, sewer and septic systems. I’ve also been involved in framing, electrical, roofing and some renovations.
I am skilled in defect recognition as well as with the equipment used to aid the detection of the defects. I bring many tools to the inspection including: moisture meters (pin and pinless types), psychrometer, infrared thermometer, combustible gas leak detector, thermal imaging camera, borescope, circuit analyzer, multimeter, circuit tracer, non contact voltage detector, 18 Megapixel digital camera, 37 foot telescopic camera pole for remote pictures, high definition drone for aerial photography and videography, laser distance meter, standard tape measure, ladder and simple three light GFCI tester. Not all the tools are required for each inspection but as the saying goes “it is better to have them and not need them than to need them and not have them”. It’s my opinion that an Inspector not interested in keeping up with and utilizing technologies available today are only in it for a quick buck and are not truly working for you.
Educating others has been a part of my life from a very early age. I’ve been training staff on procedures, equipment operation, equipment maintenance, safe work practices and most importantly customer relations. In my spare time I have been blessed with the opportunity to volunteer at the YMCA of Windsor as a Goju-Ryu Karate Instructor and now I look forward to educating you about your home.
I started with a Home Inspection Diploma from Ashworth College and I am certified as a professional Home Inspector through the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) with hundreds of hours of continuing education. While a home inspections is not a building code inspection I am continuing to become certified in the Ontario Building Code. At present I m certified in plumbing (Building Code Identification Number 44203)and I am actively working towards certification in the other areas related to residential buildings, after all, The Ontario Building Code sets the minimum standards for buildings in Ontario.
I really appreciate you taking the time to learn a bit about me and I look forward to working for you.
