The Québec Association Of Home
Inspectors (AIBQ) has established the most widely recognized standard for the
quality of home inspections
To become a member of the
an inspector must meet rigorous professional and educational requirements
followed by a peer review.
All members must adhere to the associations code of ethics
that demands fairness and impartiality towards clients.
To stay current with the profession, an
inspector is also required to meet annual continued education requirements.
These requirements are essential to maintaining the high standards that the provincial
organization has set for their members.
A qualified Home Inspector will
examine the home's major systems including,
|Interior & Exterior|
The home inspector will not make a
decision for you but can provide you with the information you need
to help make that
decision wisely. You will benefit most from your inspection
if you can be at the house during the inspection. The home inspection is a
time to become familiar with the house. Do not hesitate to ask questions.
A good inspector will be glad to take the time to explain proper maintenance
and operating procedures for many of the building components.
When choosing your inspector, be sure
to ask about experience and professional qualifications. Home inspection
is a unique discipline
requiring special training, knowledge and communication
skills that differ substantially from those of other building professionals.
AIBQ home inspectors are generalists with a comprehensive knowledge of
many systems. Membership in AIBQ assures that a professional
has demonstrated the ability to meet or exceed the AIBQ standards.
