Home inspectors are limited to inspecting existing residential homes.

(H) “Residential building” has the same meaning as in section 3781.06 of the Revised Code but also includes the individual dwelling units within an apartment or condominium complex containing four or more dwelling units.

Looking for a Home Inspector? Pick one from this list ASHI.

“The standard home inspector’s report will cover the condition of the home’s heating system; central air conditioning system (temperature permitting); interior plumbing system; electrical system; the roof, attic and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; and the foundation, basement and structural components.”

The key word is condition.

Inspector Mike®, while licensed to perform, does not perform home inspections any longer.

“I consider ASHI the premier home inspector accreditation available.” – Inspector Mike®

So what is the difference? Home – Code Inspector. They are all the same. Right?

No. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is a huge difference. A home inspector is limited to reporting on the condition of the home. A code inspector is looking and commenting on the installation of all the components of the home. Even among code inspectors there are differences. Some are only certified on one of the 4 specialties, building, mechanical, electrical or plumbing. Few hold all 4 certifications. Inspector Mike® is one of the few.
