Pillar To Post™ is always committed to the health and well-being of our clients and homeowners, as well as our inspectors. This is especially true during this time of Covid-19. We remain highly focused on providing the highest quality home inspection while adhering to the strict safety and cleanliness guidelines provided by the CDC and local governments. While our processes may have changed, our commitment to Ensuring Confident Homeownership has not. Our job is not complete until you no longer have questions concerning the home you have asked Pillar To Post™ to inspect.



As a reputable home inspection firm we provide quality home inspections in Eastern Newfoundland & Labrador, including the Avalon Peninsula, St. John’s, and Mount Pearl. In addition we can travel all over Newfoundland if needed, including both Central and Western Newfoundland, and the Burin and Bonavista Peninsulas when requested. We have been providing Professional Inspection services since 1995, and assist Home Buyers, Home Sellers, and Realtors by providing an accurate and unbiased report on the home condition.

Industry Experience Makes A Difference

  • Pillar To Post – Eastern Newfoundland & Labrador offers industry experience which can really make a difference.
  • Until 2009 when Edward Mercer Jr. joined his father at the company there was only a single inspector, Ed Mercer, who has extensive industry experience and knowledge.
  • This has been passed down to the next generation evolving our company into a family oriented business.
  • We treat each client like a family member and friend, as well as a valued customer.
  • Our experience covers all types and ages of homes, from older historic structures to new construction and homes built to spec. We also have inspection experience with small commercial properties.
  • We are expected to provide information and knowledge along with an accurate inspection report which is unbiased, and our clients place incredible trust in our services. This is a trust that we hold highly.

Inspection Related Services We Can Provide

We provide a number of related services in addition to a professional home inspection. These added services can be arranged along with a home inspection or as an individual option, and can include:

  • Infrared Thermography
  • Water Testing
  • Wood Destroying Insect Inspection
  • WETT Certified Inspection
  • Radon Measurements
  • Mold Sampling
  • Asbestos Testing
  • Indoor Air Quality Testing

Each home inspection that we conduct can range from two to four hours on average, and we welcome client participation and questions throughout the process. We take pride in educating our clients about their new homes and providing the peace of mind necessary to make the biggest purchase of their lives. For this reason, we encourage our clients to accompany us during the inspection so we can take time to point out and explain any findings to them. The services we provide can help ensure that the home people live in are safe.

Upon completing the inspection a detailed report with color pictures will be provided to the client. We are available to answer any questions even after leaving the site, and will take all the time needed to explain the findings and answer any questions that come up during and after the inspection.
