Default Phase inspections

Do anyone do any phase inspection for home owners. If so what report format do you use. I got a call from a home owner to do a phase inspection on his home that is been built.

Earl:

To properly conduct a Phase Inspection, you need to find out and address the needs of the Client. Reporting is generally narrative in nature and more Construction Code specific.

I do Construction Phase Inspections and the needs of the Client vary greatly.

Some have been a total of 4 inspections in Phases and others have been 1 hour per week with a written report each week as an update. These can run up to 24 or more inspections.

I have not found there to be any consistency to the types of Phase inspections that I have contracted.

I'm confused. How does one do a phase inspection for a home that is completed?

Stucco inspections...take pictures of the EIFS falling off the building or spider webbing for concerned owners in a written report, generally associated with new construction.

Construction Phase inspections also.

Like Joe H said...each individual may want something different.

I didn't say anything about stucco! I suppose you have some pictures like what you are talking about cracking and falling off the wall?

Earl:

With regard to Stucco (Hard Coat or EIFS)

All Stucco is Bad.

Look for items during the course of your inspection to disprove this theory and report accordingly.
