Since 1976, American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), has worked to build consumer awareness of home inspection and to enhance the professionalism of its membership. The ASHI Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics serves as a performance guideline for home inspectors, and is universally recognized and accepted by many professional and governmental bodies. Membership in ASHI is voluntary and its members are private home inspectors. ASHI's objectives include promotion of excellence within the profession and continual improvement of its members' inspection services to the public. Inspectors must complete the rigorous training and testing requirements to become an ASHI Certified Home Inspector.

Experience & Knowledge
Michael Wilhelm - ASHI Certified Inspector The Buyer or home owner may ask,
Why can't I do it myself? Even the most experienced homeowner lacks the knowledge and expertise of a professional home inspector. An inspector is familiar with the elements of home construction, proper installation, maintenance and home safety. He or she knows how the home’s systems and components are intended to function together, as well as why they fail.
