CSI is accredited by the Canadian Lumber Standards Accreditation Board (CLSAB) and the American Lumber Standards Committee Board of Review (ALSC).

"Trusted Inspection Services since 1994"

CSI is a privately owned fee-for-service agency. We do not charge our clients initiation fees, membership or annual dues. Our clients pay only for the services they require and nothing more.

Are you only paying for the services you require? Are you paying for services you don’t use? Are you paying too much?

There is an easy way to find out, and its free. CSI will do a Comparitive Analysis of your inspection needs, just call and make an appointment. At your convenience we will perform an on-site evaluation of your facility to determine what services you actually need from your grading agency. There is no expense to you to compare you’re current association costs with our inspection rates.
