About Us

The East Tennessee chapter of ASHI is the local chapter of the highly esteemed and nationally recognized organization, American Society of Home Inspectors, Inc.® (ASHI).

ASHI was established in 1976 by, a group of skilled and forward-thinking home inspectors with the common goal of improving theprofessionalism of their field and building consumer awareness. This not-for-profit professional association’s first order of business was to establish and advocate high Standards of Practice and a strict Code of Ethics for the home inspection community.

For almost thirty years now, ASHI's Standards of Practice have served as the home inspector's performance guideline, universally recognized and accepted by professional and government authorities alike.

ASHI members subscribe to a professional Code of Ethics that prohibits them from engaging in conflict of interest activities which might compromise their objectivity. This is the consumer's assurance that the inspector will not, for example, use the inspection to solicit repair work. Today, with more than 6,000 members and over 80 local chapters, ASHI® is the largest and most respected professional association for home inspectors in North America. Through ASHI’s continued efforts, ASHI's Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics are now part of many pieces of state legislation and are recognized by consumers as the authoritative standard for professional home inspections.

The East Tennessee chapter, known as ETASHI, was established with the intent of forming a network of local ASHI home inspectors from the Eastern third of the state of Tennessee.

Because they participate in a local chapter, ETASHI Home Inspectors have the added knowledge gained thru participation in group round table discussions, quarterly membership meetings and educational seminars, and an established professional network that is aware of the latest developments in the home inspection profession.

Throughout the year, ETASHI sponsors a number of special technical seminars and workshops that are open to all home inspectors within the East Tennessee region.
