You would do well taking more classes, especially in framing.

Ask your questions and we will do our best to help you out, or, ask the CMI on your team. That stuff is pretty basic.

Good luck!

How come there's a BIG INACHI 20 year badge on the site?
What year did Tim become certified.
Nick told me memberships started in 1999.......close, but no apple.

I didn't NEED to apologize for mistaking you, Patrick, for Tim. But, I wanted to. I even offered to help you our best.

And you, Patrick, hand out the above? A lot thicker skin will be needed to enjoy participating here... It seems many may want to help with the fertilizer needed to grow it.

Again, good luck...

So how long exactly does it take to earn the title "Our Senior Inspector... With 10 years of home inspection experience" at your shop?

I expect Tim is your Father? Is there a reason you are not asking him this question first?

Yes I did. He has been busy with other projects of late and I wanted a second opinion since I wasn't able to provide him with the photos I captured with my camera.
I posted in the forum before I started researching since I had another report to write, thinking a basic question would have a basic answer. I clearly underestimated the toxicity of the community.
I appreciate the honest and polite feedback that some of you have provided.

IMO you should have a "Sit Down" with him and a long discussion. After all it is apparently his company and his reputation if something goes wrong on one of your inspections. I would hope that he has some concern for this aspect and the well being of consumers?

In this photo you can see a ridge beam.
Ridge board must not be the right terminology for this system. I know it's not required but the truss webbing is at an angle I have never seen before. Not to mention an improperly supported package unit on the roof. I was asking for thoughts not insults. Thanks for the advice...

Good for you Patrick. I like your initiative. Doing research and asking questions is a strong asset for a Home Inspector no matter how many years or acronyms they have behind their name.

Thanks John and Patrick ,


This forum has many great members that post a lot less then they used to do .
Seem like some members enjoy being not so nice and have lost the ability to be polite .
