If you have a background in construction and want to continue working with your hands in your career, starting a home inspection franchise could be the perfect move. For individuals currently in building trades, Pillar To Post is a natural business model, especially if you have customers and connections that you can leverage to increase your earning potential. This is your opportunity to:
- Diversify your current company’s offerings to include Home Inspection

- Increase your income
- Simplify your business
- Reduce number of employees and liability
- Obtain a more consistent income level month to month
Take it from us. We understand that as a business owner, you may not want to stay behind the scenes when you can be getting their hands dirty, and stay intensely involved in the day-to-day operations of the company. Many of our franchisees are former contractors or home inspectors and they relish the opportunity to stay hands-on.
They particularly value the flexibility of starting a home inspection business. Whether it’s hiring employees to handle day-to-day operations or doing it all yourself, you have the freedom to structure your business however you want. This freedom is a hallmark of a Pillar To Post franchise, and it’s what makes us one of the top 100 franchises of 2017. Regardless of your background or level of experience—whether you’ve worked in the industry before or not—we strive to make our franchise model highly accessible, complete with unrivaled flexibility.
One of the most attractive aspects of starting a home inspection business is the ability to structure your lifestyle however you want. As an employee, jobs in construction and renovation usually mean long hours, nights, and weekends. But when you are the boss, you can set your own schedule and decide when and where you work. You are in complete control of your day and are empowered to strike a balance between work and leisure.
The Benefits of Experience
Whether you’re a builder, contractor, or tradesmen, if you have a background in construction, a home inspection business should feel like a seamless fit. Many franchisees are tired of working for someone else, looking to enter a less physically demanding phase of their career, seeking to diversify their offerings, or move into a more business-oriented role. Flexibility is important to us. That’s why if you wish to stay active and work with your hands, and stay active in the day-to-day operations, we encourage that. But if hiring a team of employees and staying behind-the-scenes is your goal, that’s fine too.
We love adding seasoned contractors to our team. For those with prior home inspection industry experience, check out our franchise discounts to learn how we can make this investment more affordable for you.
While building or contracting experience might give you a slight edge, it is by no means necessary to have worked in the industry before. A Pillar To Post franchise is perfect for anyone sick of their corporate job who has an intense entrepreneurial spirit, curiosity about a new industry, and desire to be their own boss. While there is certainly a learning curve, and always new information to absorb, our support system is designed to help franchisees who are new to the process, guiding them through any obstacles they might encounter.
Our support team is dedicated to helping guide you toward continued growth and profitability. You will be paired with a personal business coach—an expert in franchising and well-equipped to assist you through the unfamiliar nuances of the industry. We take our role as franchisor seriously and offer resources wherever possible to help you succeed.
While deciding to jump into franchise ownership can be a big, often scary career move—especially if you’re transitioning from a steady corporate job—we’re there to help every step of the way. From the flexibility offered by the home inspection industry, to our extensive support system, that scary transition is smoother than it might at first appear.
