Watch every episode of "Holmes Inspection" and "Holmes on Homes".
You have to know a ton of shit about general contracting, masonry, home construction, electrical work, and plumbing to be a competent home inspector.
Most home inspectors are crap.

Can't stand that fucking guy, all he ever does is talk shit about other peoples work and then pile in a load of contractors to "fix" it. Yeah some of the stuff was pretty shonky, but plenty of it is just him getting a hard on over building codes, guy should have been a lawyer.

Building codes exist to provide a minimum level of craftsmanship. If you can't build to a minimum then you shouldn't be building at all.
Especially anything that is important for a structure to be safe to live in (structure, plumbing, electrical).

You mean like the time he tore up a perfectly good access ramp because it had a gradient of 1:24 rather than the required 1:36. And then proceeded to replace it with some huge monstrosity with several 90' bends in it (to stop it extending out into the street.

Sometimes you need to be pragmatic about these things.
