How do I find a home inspector?

The best source is a friend, business acquaintance or neighbor, who has been satisfied with, and can recommend, a home inspector they have used. In addition, the names of local inspectors can be found in the Yellow Pages where many advertise under "Building Inspection Service" or "Home Inspection Service". Real estate agents are also generally familiar with the service, and should be able to provide you with a list of names from which to choose.

Whatever your referral source, be sure to ascertain the home inspector's professional qualifications, experience, and business ethics before you make your selection. You can do this by checking with the Better Business Bureau or similar service that track a companies reliability. Verifying the inspector's membership in a reputable professional association is also a good idea.

Since there are no licensing requirements for home inspectors in Colorado, you will want to make certain that your inspector follows an association that has a set of nationally recognized practice standards and a code of ethics. This provides members with professional inspection guidelines, and prohibits them from engaging in any conflict of interest activities. Youíll want to hire a full time professional inspector that will tell you what is a problem and what is not. You donít want to hire an inspector that points out something that needs repair, and then offers to fix or repair something for you for a profit. This is a conflict of interest since they would make profit again on repairs.

The inspector affiliated with a national association should also have rigorous membership qualifications and continuing education requirements to assure consumers of an inspector's experience and technical qualifications. J&D Inspections adheres to all standards of the National Association of Home Inspectors.
