Default Questions of the Week July 20, 2018

Welcome to another round of Questions of The Week!


Questions of the week:

Introduction and requirements:

A member of the Award Committee will post a question, at a random day/time.

A competing member may make one post per question thread to answer the question and the member's winning entry must have all parts of the question answered completely in that one post. Editing your one answer post allowed will result in disqualification.

Winnings will be limited to no more than 6 times in a given year, the objective is to allow as many Members a chance to win as possible.
Any disregard to the above and divulging the correct answers
or giving hints/references will cause a disqualification.


So please refrain from participating if you have already won in the maximum for the Year.

First correct answer (as judged by the Awards Committee or Poster of the Question) wins.

The lucky winner will get a case of "Now that you've had a Home Inspection Books" shipped to them at their address on file. Make sure your Address on File with Inachi is correct.

Winners of the Question of The Week shall request their prize by emailing fastreply@nachi.org and submitting their Mailing address for shipping.

Allow 2 weeks for delivery.

THANKS for being here and good luck!

1.Hickory, Sycamore, Persimmon
2.Shrinkage cracking, upward curling of the slab edges, scaling or spalling, discoloration, crazing.
3. 3,000
4. This is uber tricky and I'm sure will depend on what your source is, but wood is categorized as a board if its width is less than 2 1⁄2" and its thickness is less than 1 1⁄2", Planks are 2x8 though 2x12, and TIMBERS in the United States are 5"x5" or larger.

You're welcome Dave.

I've had the book for a long time but I think I got the book at one of the conventions or InspectorOutlet.com.

I can't remember either Larry. I have had it for a long time also.
I suppose we could find out if there is an interest amongst the Members.
