Good Intentions

Rusty Layton intends to provide you with objective information regarding the condition of the major systems and components of the home as inspected at the time of the home inspection with a professional, straightforward, patient, and communicative manner. When you are confident that your home inspector has made a thorough and comprehensive inspection it allows for you to make reasonable decisions.

Good Practices

Rusty Layton avoids making claims or promises that he can’t reasonably keep. For an agreed inspection fee payable at the inspection, Russell Layton Associates Inc. (RLA Inc.) will sell and client will buy the RLA Inc. Basic Home Inspection. The RLA Inc. Basic Home Inspection consists of and is limited as set forth in the contract agreement and requires a client signature, initials and date. The home inspection and report are performed to and compliant with the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, the International Association of Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics and the State of Virginia Home Inspection Certificate Requirements. No other standards apply.

Good Relationship

Rusty Layton is available for follow up questions or assistance at any time. As a seasoned inspector, he knows that there can be problems after you move into the house. It is not possible for a home inspector to to find all problems. With over 30 years of inspecting and about 25,000 inspections performed, Rusty Layton has thousands of satisfied clients as well as a few unsatisfied ones. Many post inspection problems come from contractors that claim the home inspector should have found the problem. Most often, the problem is not within the scope of a home inspection. Give the inspector a chance to explain his position which will be done in a professional and courteous manner.
