Joseph V. Petrozola, certified home inspector is the Owner / President / and sole inspector of The Home Detective Home Inspection Service. When you call, it is me you will be speaking to. I will be the only person both answering your questions, and doing the inspection. You will not be dealing with a number of different inspectors, as some other inspection companies.


I started my schooling in 1994. I took a correspondence course from International Correspondence Schools (ICS), where my grades were in the 90's. In 1996, I earned a diploma from ICS. In 1996 I continued my education by attending The Home Inspection Institute of America (HIIA) in Wallingford, CT. It was there I completed my studies earning a diploma from H.I.I.A.. I continued to be certified through H.I.I.A. , and in November, 1996 I earned my certification.


I have held my certification each and every year since 1996. In 2001, I have earned Senior Certified Inspector. One achieves this by being certified for at least 5 years.


Currently, I am a candidate for American Society of Home Inspectors ASHI. In 2005 I was certified by NACHI as a certified home inspector under their strict standards of practice.
