About Building inspectors

What training is required to be a Building Inspector?

Because building inspection requires a detailed knowledge of building construction, many Building Inspectors have a background in architecture or construction. Most states require that Building Inspectors obtain a license or certification.

What is the difference between a Home Inspector and a Building Inspector?

Building Inspectors review and inspect construction projects and issue permits in order to ensure compliance with building codes, and their work is conducted as a regulatory function of a county or local jurisdiction. Home Inspectors are typically hired by private individuals to inspect property they are considering purchasing. The Home Inspector advises the prospective buyer on the condition of the property. Home Inspectors must have a state-issued license.

Do Building Inspectors charge for their work?

Counties and local governments have a schedule of fees for building permit applications. Fees vary from one locality to the next, but they are usually based on the value of the planned construction.
