There is a difference between a Professional Engineer and a Licensed Home Inspector. By law in practically all states, Licensed Professional Engineers & Registered Architects are the only ones who can legally render an opinion as to the structural integrity of an existing building. Home inspectors cannot offer an opinion as to the structural integrity of an existing building. 

 To obtain a state license as a Professional Engineer, an individual must satisfy the following requirements:

∙ A 4-year degree in engineering from an accredited university.

∙ Four years of engineering experience.

∙ Satisfactory passing of (2) eight-hour exams administered by the state in the practice of engineering.

Professional Engineers must also follow a strict code of ethics. Engineers, in the fulfillment of their professional duties, shall:

  1. Hold paramount the safety, health and welfare of the public.
  2. Perform services only in areas of their competence.
  3. Issue public statements only in an objective and truthful manner.
  4. Act for each employer or client as faithful agents or trustees.
  5. Avoid deceptive acts.
  6. Conduct themselves honorably, responsibly, ethically, and lawfully, so as to enhance the honor, reputation, and usefulness of the profession.
