Home inspection services south africa


There is nothing more important than a good, safe, secure home.


Home Inspection was conceived through necessity, to assess the conditions of private and industrial property at the time of sale. Upon the purchase of a property in 2004, when the “voetstoots” clause was still active, and finding major problems with the condition of the building only after taking up residence were the faults identified. If you are needing your home to be inspected for purchase or if you are in the process of selling your home we can certainly come and inspect your home. We are one of the leading inspection services in South Africa. Some of the elements we find when inspecting a house can be seen here.

Why we are different

Through combining the American, Canadian, Australian and United Kingdom inspection methods, the concept of South African Home Inspection Services was created.

With advanced equipment ,training and over a decade of experience in the Home Inspection Industry, Jean-Marc Masson and his agents will detect hidden problems and present them to you in a clear and objective manner, along with the positive aspects of your intended purchase.

Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult…

Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.

Most Common Problems

Each home we inspect will have its own specific problems, but there are several common things we uncover. Our inspection focuses on each system and component of the home, checking with specialized instruments and trained eye for the things that are often not seen and may be very costly or problematic. Here are just a
few things we see daily:

  • Rising Damp – 90% OF THE TIME
  • Mould Issues – 80% of the time
  • Leaking roofs, gutters, and down pipes – 50% of the time
  • Deferred Maintenance – 80% of the time
  • Wall Cracks – 95% of the time

“Your property is one of the biggest investments you’re ever going to make. Any wise person would pay a small fee to make sure they know what they’re investing in.” 

– Jean-Marc Masson, Certified Master Inspector
