Product Evaluation
Inspection Agency

As an ISO 17020-Accredited Inspection Agency, we help meet your third-party product inspection needs.

Quality Assurance Inspections To Meet ICC-ES Requirements

Many International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) reports require periodic third-party inspection to ensure a product continues to be manufactured in a manner that’s consistent with the original approval, and that the manufacturer’s quality system is being followed.

Home Innovation is an ISO 17020-accredited inspection agency, and many manufacturers choose our third-party oversight simply as part of their due diligence. For either internal or external inspection needs, our experienced staff will provide efficient, reliable, and timely third-party inspections and reporting.

Light Gauge Steel

We ensure that steel studs and tracks are manufactured from certified steel coils of the proper gauge in order to provide proper strength and performance to the formed products.  

Composite Lumber

With random testing and auditing of composite lumber products and manufacturing facilities, we see how the quality management system is working to provide confidence in the strength properties of the products. 

Insulation Materials

Periodic visits to the manufacturing plant for a combination of quality record review, in-plant testing, and random product sample selection for testing at Home Innovation Labs lab is all part of our insulation inspection program which has been serving the industry for over 30 years.

Plumbing Fixtures

Since we helped create the first standards for plastic plumbing fixtures over 40 years ago, Home Innovation Labs has been visiting manufacturing facilities to inspect and select product samples for testing in our laboratory. 

Engineered Wood Products

As part of the PS2 certification of OSB products, our staff periodically visit each mill for a quality audit, inspection of quality control processes, and selection of samples for testing at Home Innovation Labs.
