On October 16, 2001, a group of certified professional home inspectors established the West Virginia Association of Home Inspectors (WVAHI). The goal of this group was to provide a standard whereby all home inspections in West Virginia could be gauged for the protection of the general public. We dedicated our efforts to the advancement of the home inspection industry. Working directly with the State Fire Commission and the State Fire Marshal's office, we were able to promulgate a rule that in 2006 became law in West Virginia. This law set forth a Standard of Practice and Code of Ethics as well as a Certification process for those individuals desiring to do home inspections in West Virginia. The WVAHI Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics set the standard for WVAHI member inspectors. By following these standards, we help assure the general public that inspections will provide a level of security which can be measured, monitored, and enforced.
