The Home Reference Book was developed over 20 years ago as a report writing tool for Carson Dunlop’s home inspection business. We recognized that a good inspection was only half of the equation since it needed to be followed up with a professional report.

Over the years, Carson Dunlop has continued to refine and enhance the Home Reference Book to make it one of the most technical and comprehensive books on the market. Home Inspectors throughout North America have adopted the Home Reference Book as a paper based report writing system and as a marketing tool.

The Home Reference Book, now in its 25th edition, is used by home inspectors as a report writing tool, by Colleges and Universities for their home inspection training programs and by real estate professionals as a gift to consumers to help them understand more about their home.
