Home Inspection

First, you need to know that in the state of Colorado, Home Inspectors are NOT licensed or regulated. Anyone can claim to be a Home Inspector. As a result, I recommend you go to this site to select one. AHSI

Note: This is one of several different companies that provide home inspector training/certifications, but after reviewing others, I found this one to be very thorough. However, none of the certification bodies inspect everything! If fact some (not this one) do not inspect major systems or might inspect the roof from the ground! So make sure you are looking for and reviewing each certification body’s “Standard of Practice” and closely review things they do not inspect!

If your the type that wants the most complete home inspection I do not recommend a home inspector at all. Go with individually licensed trades. For example, call a roofer, plumber, HVAC, electrician and maybe even a structural engineer. This way you will have each specialized skill inspecting your house, vs a general inspector. The good news, some of these trades do these inspections for free. The bad news is they make money doing repairs…so if they recommend a repair and it seems like a lot of money get a second opinion! That said, the trades listed on this page have never done me wrong.
