Home inspector assurance for Calgary home buyers

Calgary home buyers can be rest assured when its time for a home inspection as Alberta is one of the few provinces that mandates all home inspectors to be licensed, bonded, and carry emissions and omissions insurance. Also participate in a home inspectors association. There are multiple associations available that can be selected Canadian, American, and international associations. Each association has a defined standards of practise that home inspectors abide by. At Motorious Solutions Home Inspections we follow the Canadian Association of Professional Home Inspectors. (CAHPI). Along with the Alberta governing laws for home inspectors and home inspection businesses we abide by the CAHPI standard of practice.

The Canadian Association of Professional Home inspectors (CAHPI) mandates all members to maintain annual continued education credits. This holds their home inspectors accountable to learn and excel at their skills to better serve home buyers, sellers, and real estate professionals. Training is diverse and covers courses related to building science, grow-op recognition, new construction inspections, structural engineering for home inspectors, history of electrical and plumbing in residential construction. All Motorious Solutions Home inspectors attend training programs and annual conventions.

Beyond continuous education and legal requirements every home inspection is thoroughly executed to identify defects, safety concerns, and repairs of all contributing components that make up a complete home.
