Hello everyone! I am new on here and I am from Canada. I am starting my home inspection business in 2008.

I would like to start off by asking :confused: everyone for some advice on what basic tools are necessary to have to conduct a basic home inspection. I have to order online because there are no suppliers up here or close by and I found a site but some tools do the same thing but some either do mulitple tasks or some are analog and some are digital and I would like to know what a guy can buy or should buy to inspect for moisture, CFM rate of a furnace and such. Any brand names or places to buy from would be great.

Nice to meet you and I look forward to learning a lot from this excellent forum.:)

Don't know what you would call a basic HI or the reporting requirements of your jurisdiction. What are you required to put in your HI Report?

Try some of these as Christmas is coming up. :)

You can find some stuff at the Big Box Hardware stores,Sears,WW Grainger
