Of course not!
It’s a state run voluntary program that can cause poor unsuspecting home buyers to pick a horrible inspector!
You can become a certified home inspector in VA with as little as 25 inspections!
Now Jim k. would have you believe that I have claimed to be a certified home inspector in VA. Why would I do that? What would I have to gain by telling people I have completed 25 inspections. Nothing! He’s just a lying old bitter man.
So Virginia certification guarantees at least 25 inspections performed.
Here’s what I guarantee
I guarantee that we have performed hundreds of inspections.
Last year we earned 112 continuing education credits.
This year we will earn another 100.
We perform the most thorough inspections in our market
We walk on roofs to inspect them
We check for recalls and let you know how to get them repaired or replaced for free. This is a lifetime service!
All of our inspections come with a 90 day warranty. There’s no deductible!
If you get a termite inspection with us, it also comes with a 90 day warranty!
We give all of our clients a home maintenance package. It includes a move in check list, a home maintenance manual, and a list of trusted contractors.
We don’t have a limit of liability in our contract. Most inspectors in Virigina limit their liability to the fee paid for the inspection. If they miss a major issue, your are up creek without a paddle. Virginia certified home inspectors are allowed to do this! It’s insane!
Soon, we will be offering sewer line an water line protection. If your sewer clogs after you move in, we will be there to help!
We are one of the only radon testers in our area. Nearly all inspectors here use Wally from Radon Ease. The up charge to make a profit. We offer the best price in town because we do it in house!
We guarantee your satisfaction. You are hiring us for peace of mind! If you we don’t provide that for you, don’t pay us. It’s that simple. Virginia certified home inspectors aren’t required to guarantee your satisfaction.
We adhere to the NACHI SOP when inspecting your home which is better than the Virginia SOP.
We also guarantee that Jim K, a certified home inspector in VA does not provide anywhere near the service that we do!
Caveat Emptor-Buyer Beware.
Why would we voluntarily pay $25 to be able to tell people we have completed 25 inspections. We wouldn’t! We would be funding a system that by its very nature, could lead poor unsuspecting home buyers to pick a bare minimum home inspector.
