BUILT by home inspectors for home inspectors

In business since 1978, Carson Dunlop is one of the oldest and largest home inspection companies in North America. We’re passionate about the home inspection business. We’ve performed over 150,000 inspections and trained thousands of home inspectors. In fact, we’re also the only registered college devoted exclusively to home inspection training.



Along the way, we’ve learned what clients want in a report, and what tools inspectors need to exceed their clients’ expectations. That’s why we designed Horizon software back in 1988, a robust reporting system that has since been used across North America for over three decades.

That reporting system has evolved into a cloud-based, state-of-the-art inspection software platform that is optimized for a computer or a mobile device. Horizon is the ultimate inspection software tool, with everything you need to run your entire business efficiently and professionally – and outstanding report writing always at the core.
