How to inspect a home that was built using alternative methods.

March 22nd, 2010

What do you say when you get a call to inspect a home built using a method with which you’re not familiar, say, rammed earth, earth berm, earthship, or strawbale, structural insulated panels (SIPs) or insulating concrete forms (ICFs)?

What do you charge to inspect something you don’t know how to inspect?  Do you charge less because you don’t know about this construction method, or do you charge more because you charge according to your level of fear?  Do you turn down the inspection job altogether?

Find out by reading the Dynamic Duo’s new article:  Evaluating Homes Built Using Alternative Building Methods by Nick Gromicko and Kenton Shepard.
