ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors)

In 1976, a group of visionary home inspectors with the common goal of building consumer
awareness and enhancing the professionalism of their field established the American Society
of Home Inspectors (ASHI). This not-for-profit professional association for home inspectors
made its first order of business to establish and advocate high standards of practice and a
strict code of ethics for the member community.

The Mission of ASHI is to set and promote standards for property inspections and to provide
the educational programs needed to achieve excellence in the profession and to meet the
needs of our members.

ASHI is the most respected professional association for home inspectors in North America.
Through ASHI’s continued efforts, ASHI's Standards of Practice—covering all of a home's
major systems—are now part of many pieces of state legislation and are recognized by
consumers as the authoritative standard for professional home inspection.

ASHI’s Web site,
www.ashi.org, is the definitive resource for inspectors, consumers, real estate
professionals and the media for information, advice and resources dedicated to home
inspection. Here you’ll find a wealth of shared ASHI home inspection knowledge at your
disposal. Your feedback and comments on ASHI home inspection are welcome.

As an ASHI Certified Inspector, I'm trained to objectively communicate to you, the home buyer,
what the house has to say. ASHI Certified Inspectors have demonstrated technical proficiency
and report-writing skills, and are committed to continuing education in order to achieve and
maintain their ACI status. The American Society of Home Inspectors continues to encourage
and review feedback from those consumers who use ASHI Certified Inspectors, so they know
what is important to them! ASHI Certified Inspectors are committed to conducting inspections in
accordance with the ASHI Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, and are dedicated to
providing superior customer service. ASHI Certified Inspectors deliver more than a home
inspection, they deliver "The GOLD Standard".

The American Society of Home Inspectors has received NCCA accreditation to award the ASHI
Certified Inspector credential to those members meeting our highest standard.
