Standards of Practice



We at MTL home inspection adhere to the highest standards of practice to ensure the satisfaction and safety of our clients. The Standards of Practice (SOP) serve as a valuable resource, outlining our responsibilities to the client and providing guidelines for conducting thorough inspections.

Standards of Practice: Ensuring Client Satisfaction

The SOP outlines the responsibilities of the home inspector to the client. It emphasizes the provision of a written report, which serves as a comprehensive document detailing the findings of the inspection. By maintaining proper insurance and licensing, we assure our clients that we are a qualified professional committed to their best interests. Additionally, the SOP emphasizes the disclosure of any conflicts of interest, ensuring transparency and establishing trust between you and your clients.

Meeting Specific Inspection Requirements

The SOP goes beyond general responsibilities and includes specific requirements for each type of inspection. Whether it’s an electrical inspection, plumbing inspection, or HVAC inspection, the SOP provides detailed guidelines on what aspects should be examined and evaluated. This comprehensive approach guarantees a thorough and complete inspection, enabling us to identify any potential issues or hazards that may exist within the home.

Utilizing Specialized Tools and Techniques

To conduct accurate and reliable inspections, the SOP emphasizes the use of specialized tools, techniques, and technologies. Tools enable us to delve deeper into the components of a home, such as electrical systems, plumbing networks, HVAC units, roofing, siding, and framing. By utilizing these specialized resources, we can identify hidden problems that may not be immediately apparent, ensuring a comprehensive assessment of the property.

Exceeding Minimum Requirements: Going Above and Beyond

While the SOP sets forth the minimum requirements, it also encourages us to exceed these standards. By continuously updating and improving our knowledge and skills, we can provide an exceptional level of service to our clients.
