Our story started with a simple question, Who is paying for the free quotes? And answer is “end customers” or in this case property buyers. Not only property buyers pay for free quotes and they also end up getting inferior services too. On the other hand, these free quote companies extort building inspectors through creative schemes.
Building inspection council’s origin lies in the awful experiences of customers and building inspectors with free quote providing companies. These companies claim to save money for property buyer but in reality, these companies do exactly opposite of that.
Building inspectors has to pay hefty commission for each lead even if they do not get business from that lead. Some companies charge up to $75 for each lead. This adds up their business cost resulting into customer paying higher prices. On the top of that, quote providing companies charge extra for highlighting building inspector, removing negative review, adding positive reviews etc. All this additional money comes from property buyer’s pocket.
Not only property buyer is paying higher prices, they also get services from some of the worst building inspectors. As these companies are here to make money, they sell a lead to a building inspector ready to pay maximum commission irrespective of their qualification and experience. Reputable building inspector get most of their work just from references. It is usually shoddy and dodgy building inspectors who are eager to pay anything to get some business.
So there is a clear gap where building inspectors are struggling to get potential customers and customer are struggling to get qualified building inspectors. This gap gives us opportunity to envision a solution – Building Inspection Council, where building inspector gets free leads and customer gets quality advice from best inspectors at genuine prices.
As building inspectors is not paying anything for leads, so business cost goes down which is passed to the customer in form of lower prices. Also we are not charging anything to building inspectors, so instead of giving leads to highest paying inspector, we give leads to a building inspector who is most qualified in terms of experience, training and qualification. At the end of day, property buyers get quotes from best building inspectors of industry.

We promote donation for charities. For every paid building inspection job, we request our building inspectors to donate $20 to one of the recommended charity or any charity of their own choice. It important to mention here that building inspection council has no direct or indirect involvement with these charities. Making these donations is at the discretion of building inspectors and we do not penalize building inspectors for not doing so. This helps charities to raise required funding without the need of begging.
