When we were founded in 1993 by Mike Brewer, the home inspection industry was unstructured. It’s true that the formal industry was about ten years old at that time, but research revealed that there were no industry standards or training practices. This left Mike with an abysmal home inspection experience when he bought his home, and an idea. That idea? Pillar To Post Home Inspectors. In 1994, Pillar To Post was ready to start franchising. Emphasizing integrity and professionalism, we created a variety of tools to ensure that each home inspection would fit a strict standard of excellence, including:

  • Formal technical training
  • Detailed inspection practices and standards
  • Complete business start-up plan
  • Full operations program
  • Formatted inspection report

Not only do these tools keep our home inspections thorough, but they also give franchise owners what they need to build real businesses. Within just 6 years, Pillar To Post was the largest home inspection franchise in North America. We still hold that title with more than 550 franchises in 49 states and 9 provinces.


Pillar To Post thrives with franchisees from all different backgrounds because diversity strengthens our business. In keeping with this philosophy, we do not require our franchise candidates to have any specific technical or business experience. While our franchisees come from diverse backgrounds, many of them come from careers in the military, construction, and the corporate world.

We are seeking fresh faces and hard workers to join our team as Pillar To Post franchise owners. We are continuing to expand our brand all over North America, giving franchise opportunities to enterprising people in almost every market. A strong housing market in both the United States and Canada is motivating us to continue our expansion!

“There becomes a point in time, when you get tired of drama, and you look to escape it.   I became a Pillar to Post Home Inspector, as it filled all the check boxes with my goals of self employment.   I work when I want to, I have a team to support me in answering my phones, they assist me in following a proven marketing process, and to help me to succeed.    The recipe for success is there for me to follow, and them to guide me.   I would strongly encourage anyone looking to start their own business, look at Pillar to Post Home Inspectors. “
