Sudden Valley home inspector earns advanced certification

Rodger Althage, owner of RCA Home Inspections in Sudden Valley, recently completed more than 300 home inspections to earn certification by the American Society of Home Inspectors.

ASHI, a nonprofit organization established in 1976, provides education and support for independent home inspectors. Certified members have performed at least 250 home inspections, passed the National Home Inspector Examination and met continuing-education requirements.

Althage is one of only seven active home inspectors in Whatcom County who have earned the certification.

He is licensed by the state of Washington as a home inspector and structural pest inspector, and is a certified verifier for Energy Star new construction in the state.

Althage is a graduate of Bellingham Technical College’s Residential Home Inspection Course.

RCA Home Inspections, founded in 2009, also offers energy-efficiency audits. It utilizes the latest technologies, including infrared thermal imaging cameras that measure moisture and heat loss.
