RIA Inspectors

Our Credentials

  • American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) Certified
  • International Code Council (ICC) Certified (Code State of Georgia has adopted)
  • American Home Inspection Training (AHIT) Certified
  • Over 100,000 homes inspected in the Metro Atlanta area since 1989
  • All of RIA’s inspectors are Certified Inspection Experts
  • Every home inspection from a Certified Inspection Expert goes beyond the minimum standards most inspectors adhere to in a meaningful way- we check for major appliance recalls, we guarantee our work with a real mechanical and structural warranty, and we offer guarantees about the condition of things that can’t be inspected like underground water and sewer lines. In many ways, the inspection from a Certified Inspection Expert exceeds all others in the marketplace.
  • Every home inspection from a Certified Inspection Expert is of incredible quality, and to ensure this quality the Certified Inspection Expert is the only certification that requires ongoing quality control from a third party.
