Home Inspector, Montreal
“When you’re a home inspector, you see all kinds of buildings from one day to the next. Different eras of construction each have their own materials and their own challenges. I often have an idea of the kinds of challenges a building will have based on the year it was built.”
Born in Quebec City and raised in Gaspesie, Maximilien Soucy has made his home in Montreal for most of his life. He originally trained as a carpenter, and spent five years doing construction professionally, specializing in carpentry. But he found himself wanting to know more.
Maximilien always had an interest in architecture and building systems, and when he became responsible for a family duplex, he learned to confront new challenges. “I wanted to have a full understanding of the building and get a deeper knowledge of every aspect,” he says. He pursued a diploma in home inspection, and now finds himself a proud member of the Mose team.
Built up through his years of work in the field, Maximilien’s many related interests include mould and air quality as well as energy evaluation (looking at air flow both in and out of houses to determine heat loss and air exchange).
Fluent in both French and English, Maximilien brings not only an expertise but also a passion for solving problems. With his background framing buildings as a carpenter, one could say, he’s a man who truly knows houses from the ground up.
