API’s inspection reporting system fully complies and exceeds all (ASHI) standards. They are extremely detailed, comprehensive and include defined, full color photos of deficient items. The photos have proven very effective when reporting items found in attics and crawl spaces as well as throughout the property.
 
Many home inspectors claim to conduct inspections to "ASHI Standards." Using an inspector who claims to meet ASHI Standards is not the same as hiring a trained, Certified ASHI Member who has passed the National Home Inspectors Exam. Many home inspectors do not possess the skill, training and experience that can be expected from a recognized ASHI Member. A copy of the Standards of Practice is available on this site.
