Why choose a state licensed building inspector over a certified home inspector?


​In reaching the needs of Salt Lake and Surrounding Areas, we thought what could best contribute and benefit the Real Estate and Building Industry we found the following facts: 


  • ​​Home inspectors in Utah are not required to be State Licensed or Regulated. Anyone can start a home inspection business in Utah without any specific inspection training or qualifications. (Most States Require Licensed Inspector to inspect properties.)​​
  • A Building Inspector is required by the State of Utah to be Licensed and Regulated. In order to meet the license requirements they must follow strict guidelines which includes being tested by the International Code Council (ICC). This takes experience and a great knowledge in the building industry. Additional training and testing as well as yearly continuing education is also required to stay at the top of the industry.
  • Real Estate Brokers/Agents, Appraisers, Insurance Brokers/Agents and Underwriters are all required to be State Licensed and Regulated by the State of Utah. Would it not make sense then to choose a State Licensed and Regulated Inspector inspecting your home or commercial building?


Having a inspector with the right qualifications is imperative... an inaccurate or incomplete report can cost you tens of thousands which can make your investment a costly one. when a Major Structural, Plumbing, Electrical, or HVAC repair is made on a home or commercial building, the state requires it to be inspected by a State Licensed Building Inspector.


again would it not make sense then to have a state licensed and regulated building inspector inspecting your home or commercial property?
