Is the home inspection industry regulated? Along with appraisals and title searches, home and building inspections have become a standard part of the home buying process. Tennessee has passed a home inspection licensing requirement that became effective July 1, 2006. However, Engieneers performing building inspections are not required to obtain a home inspection license.
Criterium Engineers is a multi-disciplined licensed building inspection and Commercial Engineering service. Purchasing a home or building is probably the biggest investment you will ever make. A building inspection by a Professional Engineer ensures you are getting the best possible building inspection your money can buy.
Who to Trust for your building inspection? We are generally not the least expensive inspection service in the area, but we are almost always the most experienced and professional. Those for whom price is the only measure should shop elsewhere; those who shop for value will not be disappointed with their decision to hire a Criterium Engineer.
Many inspectors claim to be "certified." What does this mean?
It may mean very little. There are many associations of home inspectors, some of whom do not certify anything beyond membership in that organization (generally obtained simply by paying a fee). There is no meaningful control over these "certified" inspectors' qualifications or expertise.
Trusting your investment to anyone other than a Professional Engineer can be costly and dangerous. Most states require that anyone who comments on the condition of a structure be a licensed Professional Engineer (P.E.).
