About Us

All our inspections are completed by Raul Poole, a journeyman tradesperson with over 35 years industry and contracting experience.

The company is fully qualified to conduct building inspections within the Province of BC (CPBC Licence # 47977) and has been given an A+ rating with the BC Better Business Bureau.

Clarion Home Inspections is an active member of the BC Home Inspectors Association and most of our services go well beyond the requirements of current industry standards. Our company understands the potential consequences of an incomplete home inspection and we take our obligation to our clients very seriously.

Our Pledge
To You

Home Inspection can be a tricky business and the level of service can vary widely between firms, depending on the experience and dedication of the individuals involved. Predictably enough, it is not uncommon for people to be concerned about the value of their home inspection and to wonder what they will be getting in return for their home inspection dollars. Anyone who pays attention will have heard stories of home inspections that did not go as planned and will know that, sometimes, home inspectors may not be as thorough as they could be.

Clarion Home Inspections knows that our clients rely heavily on the information from the home inspection and we take that responsibility very seriously. We want them to know that will we do our utmost to provide them with complete and accurate information and that we will work hard to get the job done right the first time around. For those who have concerns, our company makes the following pledge to all our customers:

"If, at the completion of the home inspection process, you are not completely satisfied with the extent and the quality of the services you have been given, you have only to say so in writing and no fee will be charged. Your home inspection will be free of charge and will be on us".
