Our Mission

Home Inspections are a critical part of the home buying / selling process. Honest, knowledgeable and experienced home inspectors are invaluable.

It is our mission to self-regulate each other while upholding and exceeding the standards for the home inspection industry. In the old days, there were few standards for training / proficiency and almost anyone could buy a flashlight, a ladder, and print some business cards. The Idaho Association of Home Inspectors provides training and keeps members informed of any changes / updates to local regulations / codes, construction standards, or technology / equipment improvements that may help us serve our clients better. IAHI acts as a voluntary, regulatory association. Our association is compiled of knowledgeable, and experienced home inspectors. Our members are fully insured, have eKey access, and have performed a minimum of 200 paid inspections. Most of the IAHI inspectors have performed thousands of paid inspections during their career.

Our mission is to establish and promote standards for home inspections and to provide access to educational programs / training to help our members achieve excellence in our profession.

Home Inspections 101

A home inspection is an overall, non-invasive analysis of the condition of a home at the time of inspection. This includes the different systems, such as the plumbing, roofing, exterior, structure, electrical, interior, heating/cooling, insulation and ventilation. All of the mentioned components must work independently, while acting as a single system for a home to function properly. The primary goal of a home inspector is to protect the clients interests…to identify and report on the major deficiencies, unsafe or expensive problems that exist in the home. Once the inspection has been completed, the inspector communicates findings through a written report. If possible, the clients should accompany the inspector during the inspection or at very least come during the end for a walk-thru. This way, the client can ask questions while the inspector educates along the way.

Top 10 things to ask your home inspector prior to hiring them:
  1. What does your inspection cover?
  2. How long have you been practicing in the home inspection profession?
  3. How many paid inspections have you completed?
  4. How long will your inspection take?
  5. How much will it cost?
  6. Do you offer re-inspections on repaired items from your initial report?
  7. What type of inspection report do you provide and how long will it take to receive the report?
  8. Will I be able to attend the inspection?
  9. Do you carry E&O / Liability insurance?
  10. Do you participate in continuing education programs to keep your expertise up to date and / or belong to local home inspection association?
