John Doe of ABC Inspections said my home needs a new asphalt shingle roof. However, the city permitted and approved the new roof when it was put on. My home has subsequently been thru two hurricanes Katrina and Wilma. During which we lost two tabs.

So I hired a licensed roofing contractor who said there was nothing wrong with my roof and the spot that was reported by John Doe as wood rot was just a stained piece of plywood.

I understand that Florida is considering the regulation of home inspectors but has yet to pass any legislation.

So in the mean time, Who should be trusted to make these important decisions?

Hi Tripp,

Thanks for stopping by the Homewerx Home Inspection Blog! Whether your state requires home inspectors to be licensed or not, you should always look for a home inspector who is an ASHI Member. ASHI stands for the American Society of Home Inspectors, and it has always been the standard in home inspection. While any home inspector can join an organization and be 'certified' for a fee, ASHI requires Members to meet certain EXPERIENCE requirements, as well as passing 2 tests and adhering to a strict Code of Ethics. You can find more information here:

Thanks for your question and have a great day!

What exactly did your inspector write down? Was there rotted wood present anywhere in the roof system? Did he provide pictures? I doubt any inspector would recommend replacement of a roof without good reason.
I think that there is more to this than you are telling us.

It sounds to me as though you are a disgruntled seller who thought he had a "perfect house". Then, when the inspector came in, he found things wrong that you don't agree with.

As for licensing, the bill was passed and home inspectors will be licensed as of July 10, 2010.

The licensing is very weak and doesn't afford any real protection for the home buyer. Hopefully, it will get modified prior to going into effect.

You can find it on the State website.

An outstanding share! I've just forwarded this onto a friend who has been doing a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me dinner due to the fact that I found it for him... lol. So allow me to reword this.... Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to discuss this subject here on your website.
