Description of a Craftsman Home Inspection:

A home inspection consists of three parts: a visual inspection of the residence, a verbal debrief of defects found, and a written/ photographic pdf report of the findings and recommendations.

Onsite visual inspection of the major systems of a residential building as well as the primary carport or the primary garage.

These systems include:

  • Roofing, flashing, skylights and chimneys,

  • Exterior siding, decks, porches, sidewalks and railings,

  • Exterior grading and drainage,

  • Foundation and structural components,

  • Crawlspaces, basements and attics,

  • Heating and cooling systems,

  • Plumbing and electrical systems,

  • Insulation and ventilation,

  • Windows, doors, walls and ceilings, and

  • Primary carport or garage,

A follow up conversation (onsite or by phone) identifying existing major problems found on the day of the inspection and the possible implications of these deficiencies.

 A detailed photographic and written pdf report of the inspected building will be received within 48 hours of inspection. This report will identify all problems found at the time of inspection.


The Scope of Inspection is mandated by the House Inspection Association of BC (HIABC). For more information, visit the HIABC website and review the “Scope of Inspection” webpage.
