Introduction

Allan White graduated from Concordia University in 1985 with a Bachelor Degree in engineering. He worked for more than 6 years as a project manager in the construction industry, and he has brought his expertise to the home inspection industry since 1992.

He has become a key figure in Montreal since then, and has been giving advice live on a weekly basis for many years on some of Montreal’s to radio stations (CJAD with Tommy Schnurmacher, AM600 with Chuck Philips). He has appeared live on CFCF 12 TV with Leslie Roberts, HGTV, in print in the Montreal Gazette, The Chronicle, and The Suburban, and has been an information source for Global TV in Montreal and ExpertsMTL.com.

You have also heard his voice on Montreal’s Q92 and Team 990. Allan has been instrumental in informing the public at large about the lack of regulation in the home inspection industry, and the seldom publicized conflicts of interest which often exist between home inspectors, contractors, and realtors.

Curiculum Vitae

Allan White has many years of experience (over 25 years) in home inspection and construction-related work. In 2005, Allan left the field of professional engineering to concentrate solely on home inspection. As previously stated, home inspection is an unregulated industry in Quebec and in Canada, any one can call themselves a “home inspector” or building inspector”. The yellow pages and internet are full of them. But what guarantee do you have as a consumer that your chosen inspector is competent to do the job? Does the inspector have serious formal training, years of field experience, or simply a 2 week mail-order course?

Allan has no problem showing his credentials. In fact, in order for him to have practised engineering in his earlier years required 2 years of CEGEP formation, 4 years of university, and 2 years apprenticeship during the course of a 6 ½ years of project management work in the construction industry. This represents over 12 years of higher education and on-the-job training over and above his focus on building inspection since 1992. Allan White has become the true dean of home inspection.

Did you know that Allan White of INSPECTO-PRO Inc. is the only Building Inspection Service which is a member of the Better Business Bureau of Quebec

Allan is also a charter member of the Quebec branch of the Independant Home Inspector’s Association of North America

Allan operates independently of contractors and real estate agents, so there is no potential for conflict of interest. His job is to provide a thorough and accurate assessment of the condition of the home you intend to purchase or sell. He is always objective and fair, but his job is not to “smooth through a sale”. A home inspection seldom results only in good news because homes are imperfect; they are not mass-produced to the same exacting tolerances as, say, an automobile. The more the buyer knows, the better prepared he or she is to make an informed decision.

Beware of Inspection Companies
with Similar-sounding Names

Beware of home inspection companies with similar-sounding names. Ask the respondent for Allan White, and you’ll be told “he’s not here at this moment; can I help you?”

INSPECTO-PRO Inc. was incorporated in March of 1992, with this same name having been registered several years prior to that. For the record, we are in no way affiliated with Inspect-Pro, Inspecta-Pro, Inspection-Pro, or Pro-Inspect.

Similar sounding names chosen by other companies or individuals providing home inspection services are done deliberately and with good reason: to dupe the customer, to capitalize on the recognition of a known “brand”, and to cash-in on miss-types when searching the internet.

Accept nothing less than the best.
