Other home inspection associations have no entrance requirements. Blind people, children, psychics (who claim to "sense" if a house is ok) and even pets have joined other associations. NACHI is the only association that front-ends its membership requirements. We turn down more than 1/2 the inspectors who want to join because they can't pass our exam or fulfill our membership requirements.
So the next time you need to refer your clients to home inspectors, make sure they are members of NACHI and never use a candidate or associate of any association. NACHI, America's elite home inspection association.
