The Alabama Department of Finance regulates licensed inspectors, Division of Construction Management, Home Inspector / EIFS Inspector Licensing Division. Verification of licensing can be done through the Alabama Dept of Finance. AHIO does not verify inspectors have kept their state licensing requirements updated.
AHIO recommends contacting the inspection company of your choice and asking questions. Such questions could include qualifications, experience, license status, areas serviced, how long the inspection will last, what type of report will be produced, and when you will receive the finished report.

Why do I need a Home Inspector? Every home has defects. Some have more issues than others. When was the last time you crawled under a house to inspect for leaks? Probably never. Well, you probably have a slab. A professional, licensed Home Inspector has passed a rigorous certification exam, has experience, stays up to date with 15+ hours of continuing education each year, and is trained on what to look for when inspecting a home.
What do Home Inspectors look for? Home Inspectors use a set of standard items defined by the State of Alabama. Inspectors look at many specific components, including the areas of the roof, exterior siding and windows, foundation, interior, attic, basement or crawlspace, electrical, heat and air systems, and plumbing. Not all items are inspected; however, some items such as fireplace flues, sprinklers, underground pipes like main waste pipes, low voltage (such as built-in audio), nor swimming pools are typically inspected. You may want to ask your inspector if they offer or can help you contract for these inspections separately.
