Standard of Practice
The ASHI Standard of Practice was an essential tool in defining home inspection as a recognized profession and gain traction within the real estate market. Refined over the years, the Standard remains an influential document across the industry, and ASHI Members continue to adhere to the Standard today.
The document is divided into specific home systems and details how home inspectors should inspect each component. The ASHI Standard of Practice helps guide the inspector during the home inspection, and ensure their client will receive a thorough and effective inspection. ASHI encourages everyone involved with the home buying process to review the Standard of Practice to understand the home inspector's role in the process.
