Home inspector licensing laws establish minimum standards that all inspectors must meet. However, there is still a vast difference between a new licensee and an experienced, qualified Edmonton home inspector.
When searching for an inspector, ask about their qualifications. For example:
For how many years have you been inspecting homes?
What was your area of expertise prior to performing home inspections?
(A good answer here would be an Engineering Technology field)
What credentials do you possess (in addition to a home inspection licence)?
(A good answer here would be a Professional Engineer, Certified Engineering Technologist, etc.)
By asking questions such as these, you will be more likely to find an inspector who will deliver value for your money.
