This Home Inspection Report Template was designed through the result of more than nine years of in-the-field trial & error and research in the home inspection industry, as well as incorporating 17+ years of experience from the construction, remodeling, and contracting industries.

The template includes over 6100 narratives that are based on the IRC, IPC, NEC, R507 and NADRA for Decks, along with information from CRT and EDI. The template is plug-and-play for Spectora software, taking advantage of their location tags to be as efficient as possible.

From the reporting style to hundreds of images and thousands of narratives, I’ve done the hard work for you. I couldn’t imagine anyone building a comparable template in less than 1000 hours.The template has allowed me to be one of the highest-rated home inspectors in TN, as my report is repetitively mentioned in reviews.

The inspection template is priced the same as a solid home inspection – $525 (TX version $595) This template designed for use with Spectora will save you hours and hours of template editing and report-writing. View my sample reports below to see how the template can help you.

Based on the FIR Method

The inspection template's reporting style is based on the FIR method (Finding, Implication, Recommendation). It's also based on IRC, IPC, NEC, manufacturers instructions, etc., without referencing "code", but rather "current standards", "manufacturers requirements", or "best building practices". That way, a GC, electrician, plumber, etc., can't come in behind you and dispute the findings.

Over 6,000 Narratives

The home inspection template includes around 6100 narratives covering practically every deficiency you're going to encounter (though there may be region-specific items you need to add). There's also a ton of limitation/exclusion narratives written in a way to let the client know what you couldn't tell them in a non-off-putting manner.

Visual References Included

There are hundreds of images included from the DCA-6, installation manuals, the MVMA (now the NCMA) etc. You can view my sample reports here.

Fast & Efficient

I've never had a slowdown on the Spectora app due to its size, or I would correct it immediately as I use the template daily in the field. 
 My time on site for a typical 2000 sq ft 70's Brick Ranch is about 2.25-2.5 hours. 98% complete with the report by the time I leave. Then typically 15-30 minutes on the desktop at home, making changes to any flagged items as needed, and adding thermal, drone, and 360 pics.


Here’s the deal. I reached out to KC about 7-8 months ago. This business was new to me. I’m still considered “green” and “new” in our industry. After purchasing the template I was a little overwhelmed with the amount of information that was included with the purchase of the template. Now fast forward a few months and I am so glad KC put in the time and effort into the template. If you are a new inspector you will LEARN from recommendations in the report! Shoot, even seasoned inspectors will learn important information. Hands down, this is one of the best decisions I have made in my short career. KC has been there for me with questions as well. He is very communicative and open. If you ever want to chat prior to purchasing, call me! I will help you in anyway I can! KC, I or should I say WE appreciate you sir! Let’s keep the change going!

As a believer, husband, and father KC has helped me on my path of business and life. I’m sure in some ways without even knowing it. His faith and drive for our Father God is so much more than an inspiration, it is often times a mentorship. A true sign of what a leader looks like. His knowledge and insight are invaluable. His love for Jesus and people are inspiring. I’ve built and continue to build my business the way that God tells me to, and the way that fits me. However, there is a breadcrumb trail of similarities to KC’s method and practices throughout that are in some ways ingrained into the foundation of Diamond Pro Home Inspections.

Kind Words From Fellow Inspectors


I struggled to create my own template, K.C.'s template was a game changer for my business. It has allowed me to achieve my biggest goal; to deliver a report that will not only educate my clients on their homes, but give them a plathora of information and resources that will help them maintain it for years to come. I've received only positive feedback on our reports since using K.C.'s template!

Utilizing KC’s template has helped me more than any other business decision I’ve made. I was new and had limited experience in the trades. His template gave my business an incredible boost. My confidence grew with every inspection and finishing the inspection on site soon became a reality. His template is filled with years of knowledge, common sense, diagrams, illustrations and experience. I have used other templates, but there is no comparison. I would have paid much more than what he charges. KC’s template is GREAT!

This is one of the first purchases I made. I’ve changed it so much it looks almost nothing like it did when I bought it. I’ve made it “my own”. And even though it’s mutated in to something different, I would buy it again in a heartbeat. The value from KC’s template to me was the vast amount of knowledge and experience packaged in to a template that was basically continuous education for me as an inspector. I was learning new things, or reinforcing what I had already learned, every time I did an inspection report! His narratives helped me grow as an inspector, and in some cases the well written disclaimers and informational comments protected me. 10/10 recommend!

Kc Bartleys inspection template is the best I’ve come across. It is very well laid out, very clean and very in depth. I’ve owned an inspection franchise that had a proprietary software with thousands of comments, went and started my own inspection company and went through various softwares and templates etc. his template was one of the best business decision I’ve made. Worth every penny.
