Why does being an ASHI certified inspector matter? Most inspector organizations, such as NACHI and NAHI don’t have strict entrance requirements. In other words, you can pay a fee and join the organization.
ASHI certified members must submit at least 250 inspections to be reviewed by certified master inspectors to make sure they are in compliance with industry leading professionalism, standards of practice, technical expertise, and report writing requirements. This process weeds out or discourages many who don’t wish to rise to the highest levels of the profession.
In addition, ASHI is the industry leader in continuing educations requirements, and provides accountability for its members to ensure they are continually being educated and improving their performance in the field and in serving clients.
If you choose an ASHI certified inspector, you won’t get a perfect person, but you will get:
• A dedicated professional committed to providing the best inspection experience possible.
• A team of master inspectors available at any moment to help.
• An inspector armed with top notch inspection skills, and the expertise to discern if an issue should be a concern or not.
• An inspector with the skill to explain an issue without hyperbole
• An inspector with the experience to provide onsite and ongoing insight into the inter-workings of your home.
• And much more….
With an ASHI certified inspector, you know what you are getting. With anyone else, you can’t be sure. Ask for Jamie!
Buying a house may seem like an endless series of critical, important decisions. Choosing an ASHI Certified Inspector means choosing someone you can trust to provide you with a comprehensive analysis of the home’s major systems and components—honestly and objectively, apart from anyone’s interests other than your own.
Selling your Home?
Homebuyers are not the only people who hire ASHI Certified Inspectors. Homesellers also use ASHI Certified Inspectors to gain knowledge of the condition of their home before placing it on the market. Smart homesellers want to know the condition of the home, so they will be better prepared to acknowledge or correct deficiencies before placing their home on the market.
New Home Owner
When you find the house that is right for you, you look to a professional to educate you about the condition of your new home. This is a commonplace and a wise decision, even when buying a newly constructed home; the additional peace of mind that an ASHI Certified Inspector offers is invaluable, as new construction deficiencies can be brought to your attention for correction, so you can be more comfortable in your new home.
