You will often hear that a home inspector is “experienced,” and that is certainly a good thing. I myself have years of experience in construction, but is it enough? For instance, perhaps someone has spent years cooking, but does that make them a Chef? And trust me when it comes to choosing a Property Inspector, you want a “Chef.”
In our particular area inspectors are required to maintain a contractor’s license with the Oregon Contractors Board and maintain their home inspector license, which includes one initial National Exam (applicable in only some States). So, you pass a test and get your license.
I knew I wanted to be the best inspector that I could be and provide my clients with the service that will best protect them and their investment.
Here is why being an InterNachi Certified Professional Inspector, such as myself, should matter to you –
- I’m required to stay up to date with the industry’s most rigorous Continuing Education through annual online, video and live training courses, which have been awarded more than 1,400 approvals and accreditations by governmental and other agencies.
- I adhere to a comprehensive Standards of Practice to ensure that you receive a detailed and accurate home inspection.
- I abide by a strict Code of Ethics, which puts my clients first and protects their rights as consumers.
- I use state-of-the-art inspection tools and reporting software so that my clients can make informed decisions about the homes they want to buy or sell.
So, there you have it, why hire a “cook”, when you can hire a “Chef?”
