The Home Inspection Industry   


With the home inspection industry always changing and the consumer’s level of knowledge increasing many home buyers are seeking out to hire the most trained and competent home inspectors available to inspect their homes.

      With some provinces already licensing home inspectors such as British Columbia and Alberta will furthermore help protect buyers’ interests by: 

  • Assessing home inspectors qualifications.
  • Receiving and responding to consumers’ complaints.
  • Monitoring compliance through inspections and enforcement, and imposing penalties of where appropriate.

To be a knowledgeable and professional home inspector you must be a fully trained generalist and able to understand how the building systems/components found in a home perform and wear out over time. These systems include items such as: structural components, exterior components, roofing, plumbing, electrical, heating, air conditioning, interior, insulation and ventilation. That’s why it’s so important to receive proper training/education and mentor-ship and ongoing support to strive with the highest level of competency in the Home Inspection Industry.
