Home Inspection, Building Code and Permit Information

American Home Inspector Directory

The American Home Inspector Directory is one of the first home inspection websites to offer home inspectors from all home inspection organizations.  All of AHID's members agree to conduct their home inspections according to their organizations "Standards of Practice & Code of Ethics".


Used by thousands of building inspectors every day, Code Check is an easy to use spiral ring reference book that covers building, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing codes. With copious drawings and tables, it is a wonderful tool for the professional home inspector, the homeowner, or contractor to evaluate both new and old work for code compliance.

The Code Check web site features one of the best collections of building code links on the Internet, painstakingly organized by Redwood Kardon, a professional building inspector and author. His purpose... to act as a resource for pros and amateurs alike who need up to date code information. And, of course, to sell his books! You may purchase this book through the Natural Handyman Bookshop.
