Sylvain “Slinky” Girard is the main inspector for Two Peaks Home Inspections Inc, working throughout the Sea to Sky corridor, as well as the Vancouver North Shore and the lower Sunshine Coast. Sylvain is a BC Licensed Home Inspector and remains an associate member in good standing with the Canadian National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (CANachi) and InterNACHI. He received his certification after extensive study from the Carson Dunlop Training Institute; the most comprehensive home inspector training system in North America. He is currently licensed under the British Columbia Business Practices and Consumer Protection Branch; BC License #55977.
Originally from Montréal, Quebec, Sylvain has been a Whistler resident since attending the mogul summer ski camp of 1992. When arriving to Whistler “Slinky,” as he’s better known, first worked in the hospitality industry, cooking, bartending, and then on to managing. He then decided to pursue a career in the construction industry — and over the past ten years, Sylvain has gained enough experience to become a self-employed contractor. He has worked in numerous sectors from building foundations to framing and high quality finishing, including residential and commercial renovations.
Sylvain also enjoyed being part of the Whistler Fire and Rescue Service Team where he served as a paid-on-call Lieutenant at Spring Creek Fire Hall #3 for 8 years. On designated weekends, he also enjoyed giving back to the community by way of participation in fundraisers or training for the Whistler Auto Extrication Team, where he held the position of medic. He recently retired to pursue other goals.
Sylvain’s next career goal is to operate the most successful home inspection business on the Sea to Sky corridor. Becoming a home inspector seemed like a natural fit. Having the background and knowledge in the construction industry will allow him to assist realtors, comfort the client and protect their investment.
His ideal vacation involves sports, friends, family, great food, and fantastic wine. It’s no wonder he fell in love with Whistler and its surroundings.
