My Qualifications

 

Hands-on work experience is a key element in learning the building process and the problems that can be encountered through each phase of construction. With over 25 years in residential and commercial construction, I have the experience and knowledge it takes to recognize defects, safety issues, and code violations that need to be addressed.

I have completed all requirements to become a member in good standing of InterNACHI, (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors). As an InterNACHI member, I have and must continually:

  • Pass InterNACHI’s Online Inspector Examination every year. This general, not association-specific exam is an industry standard required by InterNACHI,
  • Adhere to the industry’s largest, most comprehensive Standards of Practice,
  • Abide by InterNACHI’s Code of Ethics,
  • Follow a strict continuing education policy that requires, among other things, that I receive 24 hours of continuing education each year,
  • Have completed InterNACHI’s ethics obstacle course which ensures that I am aware of my ethical duties as a home inspector,
  • Have signed and submitted an affidavit legally agreeing that I have and will continue to adhere to all InterNACHI standards, ethics and education requirements,
  • Maintain a continuing education log,
  • Am required to successfully complete InterNACHI’s comprehensive Standards of Practice course and examination, Roofing course and examination, Inspector Safety course and examination, Wood Destroying Organism course and examination, 25 Standards course and examination, Moisture Intrusion course and examination, Vermiculite Insulation course, Polybutylene Plumbing course, Water Heater TPR Valve course, and Emergency exit course,
  • Complete at least one very advanced inspection course every 2 years, and,
  • Have access to a number of learning tools such as inspection tips and technique illustrations, a library of home inspection books and videos, the industry’s largest message board, InterNACHI’s “what’s new” publication of recent inspection news, and the InterNACHI University.

If you need a home inspection performed, don’t settle for anything less than an InterNACHI-certified home inspector. Contact me now to schedule your inspection.
