WHAT is NOVA ASHI?
The American Society of Home Inspectors, Inc. (ASHI) is the longest-established and most highly regarded association of professional home inspectors in the nation.
NOVA ASHI members are responsible for advising all parties in real estate transactions as to the structural soundness of building construction as well as functional aspects of the interior and exterior electrical, plumbing, waterproofing, heating and air conditioning systems.
In addition, we count among our affiliates, those allied in the fields of housing construction, maintenance and environmental safety.
All ASHI Certified Inspectors are required to meet education and experience requirements. Their written reports must conform to consensus industry standards. They have agreed to abide by the ASHI Code of Ethics. Home inspectors who participate in NOVA ASHI are striving to improve their knowledge and professionalism through regular continuing education programs.
A MEMBERSHIP of PROFESSIONALS
NOVA ASHI members come from a wide variety of engineering, construction, business and environmental disciplines.
Each has shown a high level of proficiency in the broad spectrum of knowledge necessary to become a member of ASHI.
Each member must pass a professionally monitored national test exhibiting the ability to recognize, interpret and explain a wide variety of building, electrical, plumbing and construction concerns and failures.
Through chapters across the United States and Canada, ASHI members meet regularly to exchange information and to receive continued education on every aspect of modem construction practices.
This organizational requirement for, and source of, continued education to the Home Inspection profession helps its members to maintain a high level of continuing education, making it unique within the Home Inspection profession.
NOVA ASHI meets regularly and allows a lively interchange among those attending.
If you are involved in, or entering the field of professional home inspection, you are invited to attend our meetings.
RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL EXPERTISE
In addition to homes, some NOVA ASHI members also perform inspections of a variety of commercial buildings: From townhouse and condo offices to strip shopping centers and larger retail stores as well as restaurants, churches and small manufacturing buildings, NOVA ASHI members can provide both sellers and purchasers an objective analysis of the structural and major operating systems to allow a more informed purchase decision.
