VC HOME INSPECTIONS
My father, Valmont Bérubé started our general contracting company more than 40 years ago. And for over 15 years now we have been leveraging this wealth of knowledge by focusing on providing professional home inspection services to Ottawa and the surrounding areas. I’ve been in the construction business since 1994 and a building inspector since 2005.
As part of our commitment to supporting our Ottawa community, we shared our knowledge through our informative television series on Rogers cable called 2×4. For over 9 years, we provided our audience with great tips, tutorials, manufacturer tours and relevant news to help you improve your home, health and safety.
Our knowledge sharing continued as we provided carpentry education at La Cité collégiale, teaching men and women on home construction as they work towards their carpentry certificates.
Home safety is an important topic for us. I apply my knowledge and experience as a former volunteer firefighter and fire code inspector for the City of Clarence-Rockland to all our home inspections.
My father passed away in 2013 and, in his name, I Continue to pursue our shared vision to providing honest quality services to our local community.
