Tips to Consider
Before hiring a building inspector, there are a couple of points that you need to consider to make the right choice,
·         Education and Training- A professional building inspector is responsible for evaluating every structural component. For being capable of offering a competent evaluation concerning every element needs proper training and formal education in building construction techniques as well as on-going training for keeping up with the latest building methods of contemporary homes. A professional inspector will possess an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the different house construction types all through the ages. Ensure that the inspector possesses formal training exclusively in the building.

·         Certifications- Though certifications are vital, but it is the perfect combination of training, education and experience which can create the difference when it comes to your next inspector’s competency. Certifications matter because there is no substitute when it comes to proper training and experience. It is vital to hire a licensed building inspector that can help you to generate quality reports.

·         Inspection Report- Always hire an inspector that offers a combination narrative/checklist report. The report must provide summary pages having specific categories such as safety problems and items, major and minor defects for further investigations. A good inspector is one that can provide you with an array of reports right from a Premium report, Standard complete written report and Basic structural report. If the inspector fails to offer then hire someone else. 

·         Total Experience- Check the total number of experience that the inspector holds and for how many years they are in business.

·         Check Reviews- A good inspector will get testimonials that you can see from happy and satisfied clients after he completes his job. If the inspector fails to offer client testimonials, then opt for some other choice.

·         Ask Questions- Before hiring an inspector to make it a point to ask these questions,

(a) Is inspection your sole business?
(b) Can I be a part of the inspection along with you?
(c) Do you hold indemnity insurance?
(d)Can you complete the report on the same day?
