Who we are and what we’re about
Latitude 45 was founded in 2005 by Charles Cobden, a skilled building designer and contractor. Before establishing his own home inspection business, Charles worked for several years as head of design for building design firms, where he developed a deep understanding of many different construction techniques. In these roles, he would also manage tradespeople to ensure everything went as planned. His passion for design and construction, along with his experiences in project management, inspired him to personally build several residential and commercial spaces.
Throughout his career, Charles has been involved in every phase of the building process, from design, construction to completion. It is this A to Z experience that has fostered a “no stone left unturned approach,” which he uses when providing inspection services to his clients. His thirst for knowledge never ends, and he attends many courses and seminars. Fully certified and insured, Charles is a member in good standing of both the Quebec Association of Building Inspectors (A.I.B.Q.) and the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (C.A.P.H.I.).
After investing a lot of time and hard work, you have finally found a place you want to call home.
For many, buying a home is the biggest purchase they will ever make. But even the most attentive buyers can get side-tracked by emotion, and it’s not always easy to tell whether an imperfection will become a major issue down the road.
An unbiased home inspector will provide a detailed assessment of the home’s overall condition. A good home inspection report does more than reveal whether the house is level or not. It determines what is causing issues and, most importantly, what can be done to correct them.
At Latitude 45, we provide thorough on-site inspection services and next-day reports that are customized for your individual situation. We are passionate about serving our customers, helping them make informed decisions as they work through the buying process.
