The home inspection template that dots the "i's" and crosses the "t's".

The KC Bartley Inspection template is the result of 7+ years of my blood, sweat, and tears in the field and incorporating my 17 previous years as a contractor. The template has allowed me to be one of the highest-rated inspectors in TN, as my report is repetitively mentioned in reviews.

From the reporting style to hundreds of images and thousands of narratives, I’ve done the hard work for you.  I’ve improved it almost daily for seven years and couldn’t imagine anyone building a comparable template in less than 1000 hours.

I’ve priced the template the same as the price of a solid home inspection – $525 (TX version $595) This template 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 template's reporting style is based on a FIR method (finding, implication, recommendation). It's also based on IRC, UPC, 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 4,500 Narratives

The template includes around 4500 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 mobile 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!

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!
