About House Detective

House Detective owner, Kevin Bush, is a Certified Master Inspector (CMI). CMI inspectors are the best inspectors in the world. CMI is a professional designation available to all qualifying inspectors who wish to become Board-Certified by the Master Inspector Certification Board. All CMIs  are experienced, dedicated to education, and have a proven record in the inspection industry.

House Detective is also certified by the world’s most elite, non-profit inspection association: The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). All InterNACHI certified home inspectors have successfully passed InterNACHI’s Inspector Examination, taken a Standards of Practice Quiz, completed a Code of Ethics Course, adhere to Standards of Practice, abide by a Code of Ethics, and attend required continuing education courses.

House Detective holds the coveted ASHI Certified Home Inspector designation. This designation is reserved only for those members who have met the highest educational, experience and ethical requirements set forth by the ASHI Certification Committee (ACC) and accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
