Sandy Byers is the local home inspector for the West Kootenay / Boundary area, and she has been helping home buyers, home sellers, and local Realtors since 2007. Sandy communicates with clients in a knowledgeable and professional manner, and clients are assured of an accurate and unbiased inspection report on the condition of the home being inspected.
Industry Excellence and Experience That Shows
As the only inspector and the owner of Pillar To Post of West Kootenay my clients are assured that I will be the one performing the home inspection, and not someone less qualified or experienced. My inspection experience includes many types of residential structures of varying sizes, light commercial building, pre-listing, and pre-purchase home inspections.
I am qualified to conduct Continuing Education Courses to real estate agents, and have instructed the first of what I hope to be many CEPs. These courses are intended to educate and provide information on home related topics to real estate agents.
Optional Services My Clients Utilize
In addition to an extremely thorough and professional home inspection I also offer clients related services as well. These can be scheduled for the same time as the home inspection, or they can be arranged for another time instead.
- Radon Testing
- Water Testing
- Thermal Imaging / Infrared Scanning
Each home inspection that I perform is very thorough, and the process usually takes from two to four hours in most cases. The inspection report and related color photographs are printed right at the site, and I will discuss the findings in detail with the client. I also go over tips and steps on operating and maintaining the home as well. I encourage clients to attend the inspection and answer any questions that they may have. I am also available if questions arise after the inspection is finished and I have left the site.

What Customers Say About My Services
“Sandy Byers completed a thorough inspection of the property at 8670 Beach Road, Balfour British Columbia on Thursday, March 25th. Sandy was professional and courteous, informative and diligent. I was very impressed with the detail of the inspection and very happy with the information gained from Sandy’s work.
Most of all, Sandy was considerate and able to communicate in terms I could understand- the immediate priorities and medium and long term maintenance requirements for keeping our family home safe and sound. Peace of mind is priceless.”

“I was very impressed with the high quality of service that I received from Pillar To Post Home Inspections. The report is most comprehensive. Not only does it cover details about existing issues, it also suggests how to maintain individual areas in the home. I also received a reference binder to assist me in looking after my property by giving me a seasonal checklist for easy reference. Another factor that was important in my purchase was that Sandy was really timely in sending any information that I needed for insurance and final sale closure. This of course is critical in buying property, especially for me since I am coming from Calgary. From the report, I certainly received “peace of mind” before I purchased my home in Castlegar. Of course, I strongly recommend Pillar To Post as a most professional service. Thanks Sandy”

“Sandy was very prompt in responding to our needs for a house inspection and accommodating our schedule on short notice. She was professional, personable and thorough. She took the time to walk us through the inspection report point by point to ensure we had a good understanding of any potential issues with our new home. The report is so comprehensive that we will use it as a basis for our ‘to do’ list in the coming months!”
