The Vermont Association of Professional Home Inspectors is an organization of independent inspectors interested in promoting excellence in the Home Inspection industry. We believe our goal of providing an outstanding service is best achieved by educated professionals who are pledged to Standards and Ethics. VAPHI has been, and continues to be instrumental in the development of standards of practice for Vermont home inspectors by virtue of VAPHI’s membership requirements.

The process of buying a home can be both exciting and anxious. We feel it is important for homebuyers to have an objective, detached professional to turn to for the home inspection. Being the only home inspector organization in Vermont, VAPHI sees our Home Inspectors as a reliable, if not crucial role in this process. Educating Vermont Home buyers is VAPHI’s motto, and our members take it very seriously. That’s why one of VAPHI’s primary missions is to promote increased professionalism among its members and within the industry as a whole. Sponsorship of training sessions, seminars, and meetings of the general membership and other interested individuals, are integral facets of this program. When home buyers choose home inspectors from among those listed on the VAPHI members list they can be confident that:

  • All inspectors listed are VAPHI members.

  • VAPHI inspectors have completed standard Industry Inspection Training.

  • VAPHI inspectors have completed and passed a nationally acknowledged and proctored exam specific to Home Inspection.

  • VAPHI inspectors have a proven record of experience in the performance of home inspections and have knowledge of unique conditions encountered in the Northeast U.S.

  • VAPHI inspectors are insured.

  • VAPHI inspectors are inspecting to accepted industry Standards of Practice, such as the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), the National Association of Home Inspectors (NAHI), and the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI).

  • VAPHI inspectors earn continuing education credits yearly by attending educational classes.  This is an ongoing requirement to maintain membership in VAPHI and to satisfy individual Home Inspector Credentials.
