Qualifications

Southern Home Inspections strives to provide the most in depth and personal service you can find from any home inspection company. I provide whole house structural, electrical and mechanical inspections.

I am committed to providing you with the most professional, honest and unbiased report possible. You will receive a computer generated report complete with digital pictures and a summary section. A normal inspection takes 3-5 hours. You will get the report within 24 hours. The report will be given to you on paper and on a CD. It can also be emailed. Though not all photos taken during the inspection may be included in the report, they will be included on the CD. These reports are easy to read and understand. They are detailed and unbiased and allow sellers to know what repairs should be made to put their home in the best showing condition. They help home buyers know what problems exist so that they can make an informed decision about whether to make an offer.

Licensing of home inspectors only sets a minimum standard. Much like being up to code, any less would be illegal. That’s why I have worked to become a member of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI). As a NACHI member, I:

  • Pass NACHI’s Online Inspector Examination every year. This general, not association-specific exam is an industry standard required by NACHI and some state licensing boards,
  • Adhere to the industry’s largest, most comprehensive Standards of Practice,
  • Abide by NACHI’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 NACHI’s ethics “obstacle course” which ensures that I am aware of my ethical duties as a home inspector,
  • Have passed NACHI’s Standards of Practice quiz,
  • Have signed and submitted an affidavit legally agreeing that I have and will continue to adhere to all NACHI standards, ethics and education requirements,
  • Maintain a continuing education log that is verified by NACHI,
  • Submit a portion of my inspection reports to NACHI’s report review committee for outside evaluation,
  • Am required to successfully complete NACHI’s comprehensive Standards of Practice course and examination and Roofing course and examination,
  • I have taken NACH’S water heater course,
  • Attend at least one chapter meeting or educational seminar every two years (reasonable exceptions apply),
  • Have access to the Inspector’s Quarterly so I can keep up-to-date on all the latest issues in the home inspection industry,
  • 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, NACHI’s “what’s new” publication of recent inspection news, Dear NACHI,” a detailed advice column, free online courses, quizzes, and exams, and the NACHI University,
  • Have access to a time-tested agreement that helps avoid lawsuits,
  • Have access to a free report review and mentoring service,
  • Have access to the NACHI Mall, and
  • Provide access to a free consumer hot-line.
