Matthew Sanzari

Home Inspector, Montreal

Matthew got his start in building construction trade by way of his uncle, a master electrician. “He inspired me, and taught me everything he knows about electricity and how to be meticulous and do a job right.”

Matthew brings that meticulousness with him into the home inspection trade. “I’ve always been fascinated by the whole of the building, and home inspection keeps me learning more, and exposed to new things.”

Following a decade working in the electrical trade, Matthew enrolled in the Vanier home inspection course to learn more. He got hooked. “People don’t realize a home is like an entity unto itself, an entire system that’s co-dependent on its parts. You can’t just start changing things; you have to think about the bigger picture. Take insulating, for example, if you spray foam all the exterior walls, it changes the humidity in the wood and you risk rot and mold in the walls.”

He admits, oddly enough, that the electrical system is one of the few that can be changed, but requires opening walls. From his career as an electrician, Matthew says he gets why many buildings in Montreal are “only half wired.”

For example, “Knob and tube was made for the era that it was constructed in—not for the appliances we have now.” Despite the fact that electricians have an “obligation” to change the wiring, “A lot of the time people can’t afford to do it; so they ask for temporary fixes and we do them a little at a time.”

He says that can be frustrating. On the flipside, when it’s done, he says, “It’s a kind of magic—when the lights go on and everything’s working, people are always happy and you can feel that. It’s a beautiful thing.”

Matthew says inspection work delivers the same “lights are on” satisfaction. “When I can explain everything to my clients and be sure they know what has to be done, there’s a magical satisfaction to that.”

Between rebuilding walls following electrical work, and completely gutting and renovating his own home, Matthew has seen his share of construction work.

When he isn’t inspecting, Matthew practices Brazilian jujitsu and Muay Thai and works on his home. He speaks French and English, some Italian and Polish.
