Home & Cottages Services

As a cottage owner, you’ll likely find yourself in need of the some of the same services you require to keep things humming at your primary residence in the city.

In Canada, specific codes cover the installation of wood-burning appliances and fireplaces in light of the risk of fire and injury.

We’ve assembled a list of inspectors who are certified to inspect, repair, or replace the wood-burning fireplace, pellet or oil stove at your weekend retreat. Cottages often have furnaces, water heaters, and air conditioners, just as you would find in a city house. And these appliances need attention and fine-tuning every once in a while – just like their city cousins.

As a cottage owner, you might find yourself calling on local companies to deliver a pallet of wood pellets for your pellet stove or heating oil for your on-site oil tank.

If you’re a first-time cottage owner, perhaps you’ve never needed anyone before to fill an oil tank or leave bags of wood pellets at your cottage doorstep.

Or maybe you need to call a local pest control company to help you keep unwelcome cottage guests at bay.

And it’s hard to imagine cleaning windows at the cottage will be a chore that holds your interest any more than it would in the city. To carve out extra time for kicked-back cottage pursuits, you may decide to call in professional window cleaners to get this tedious job done.



Fireplaces, Pellet Stoves, and WETT Inspections

In Canada, specific codes cover the installation of wood-burning appliances and fireplaces, given fire and safety concerns. WETT or Wood Energy Technology Transfer Inc. is a an association of installers, chimney sweeps, and inspectors who have been educated, trained, and certified to install and inspect these installations to ensure they meet the applicable requirements.

Today, a WETT inspection is often necessary to obtain fire insurance on a building with a wood-burning installation. This inspection is required by the insurance company and the inspection must be carried out by a certified inspector.

It is a good idea to arrange for a WETT inspection as a condition of sale when you purchase a cottage as the repair or replacement of a non-conforming installation can be very expensive.
