With roughly 500 color illustrations, the Home Reference Book is written to help homeowners understand and take good care of their homes. It provides great insight at a simple, straightforward level. From bay windows to basement leakage, the Home Reference Book helps homes make sense. This text helps to educate homeowners with important information – like our Life Cycles and Costs section, which details a quick overview of what it costs to replace a roof or furnace, add central air conditioning, etc. It also provides an indication of how long house systems and components typically last. It’s incredibly valuable for homeowners.

Available both as a paperback and eBook, the Home Reference Book continues to help homeowners protect their most valuable assets.

What Our Clients Say

  • The information layout of the manuals combined with the videos is a tool that can only be described as value-added. The details such as description, what to look for, reasons why and what to do for each module are very well formatted and have greatly expanded my knowledge. In conclusion I have to take a word from the MasterCard commercial, the Carson Dunlop Home Inspector Course are PRICELESS.


  • Your training was clearly the best course available and I opted to purchase it even though full VA reimbursement was available for some other home based training courses. I have been extremely pleased with the quality of the training provided by your program.

    M.H. Captain

  • It was very thorough! I do not come from a construction related career and was looking for a complete training program to feel comfortable with my new career. This program was great. I am finding that I know things that other seasoned inspectors don’t. This is exactly what I needed.

    Ben P.

  • I am grateful for the opportunity to have participated in your fine program. I have always tried to create the very best career opportunities that I could for myself. My education years ago as an IBEW trained Apprentice and subsequent graduation to Journeyman Wireman has proven invaluable to me in my career as an electrician. Now as a Carson Dunlop trained inspector, I feel comfortable knowing I have again received the very best training and education available.


  • The course material and testing were both very good, well explained and I do believe that it covered every possible aspect of Home Inspections. I am looking forward to starting my new business and this course has put me on the fast track to becoming a successful Home Inspector. I also want to thank all your staff at Carson Dunlop for being there for me through this process and for your friendly down to earth service. I am looking forward to continuing a future relationship with Carson Dunlop and Horizon.
