Wow, which’s a mouth-full along with probably not very helpful. Suffice to say which not all designations are equal nor do all qualify for a license by the government of Alberta. I encourage you to compare the criteria for the RHI along with CMHI designations to others, I consider either designation to be difficult to obtain, along with hence a desirable trait for anyone conducting a home inspection in Calgary.
Alberta home inspectors are not required to belong to any professional association, membership can be completely voluntary. Memberships are not free, some associations require on going education along with have policies encouraging members to attend meetings along with work with stake holders to improve the industry. additional associations focus more on marketing along with helping members in Calgary to expand their business.
Each of these associations publish a Standards of Practice (SOP) along with Code of Ethics (COE) which spell out in great detail what a home inspection includes, what the item does not, along with how members should conduct themselves. The SOP along with COE help to protect consumers by ensuring which home inspectors are held to a standard, if the SOP says which a representative number of electrical receptacles are to be inspected, then the item darn well better get done! If the COE says which an home inspector can not make repairs to home which he has inspected, he better not be offering handyman services during the home inspection!
I sincerely trust which the days of a poorly trained, fly by night, 2 hour home inspection in Calgary can be long gone, replaced by people who consider themselves professionals taking pride in helping potential home buyers gain a solid understanding of the home they are considering. Mike Holmes along with his television show tend to give us a bad rap however the item has raised the profile of the industry which can be a not bad thing. Everyone inspecting homes in Airdrie should step up their game along with do all they can to be thorough, complete along with unbiased.
A home inspection professional can be a generalist which can be likened to a family doctor. The goal can be to identify significant defects along with refer specific diagnosis, causes along with methods of repair to licensed trades people. Although your family doctor may be a great doctor, they may not be the best choice to perform your operation, same line of thinking for Chestermere home inspectors. A licensed plumber might probably take at least an hour to go through a house at a cost of well over $100. Multiply which figure by the 12 systems contained inside the SOP along with you can soon see why a 4 hour, $500 home inspection can be genuinely a great deal along with only one person to schedule!
