Ben,

Another quality course by InterNACHI. I am proud to be part of such a great organization.

In terms of the music on the commercial, I was glad that the music did go down in volume while you were talking.

Thanks

Jonathan

Good job! Great course Ben. You did not try to jam too much into one session and it was clearly presented. Looking forward to the next roof videos.

Ben
My wife Dahlia and myself enjoyed the video. Lots of great info especially if someone is not comfortable with roof inspections. As for the music I personally have no problems with it but can see how some can. When your speaking I would have the music as background rather than foreground sound. But when showing examples or making a point it's ok as is.

I thought the roofing video was great. Short and concise. I would like to see text with the pictures calling out the findings.

Why are all these guys hung up about the music?? Get over it.

Ben, The course was more detailed than the regular roof inspection course, and I am thankful for the information as even when you think you have most the knowledge there is always room for more. The music was a little more than I expected as I glue myself to the speaker on Vidio's so as not to miss anything.
In the up coming vidio's will there be more on age determination? (Shingle roofs) Flat Roofs can be re-mopped or capped and would be hard to determine.

Music was a little loud at times, but as a beginner, I found the video very informative and it explained roofing very well to me. THANK YOU.

Good video for a new inspectors indeed. I thought your diagrams were excellent and could be used to explain potential issues to client. Worth it.

Ben,
Excellent Video!
Very informative!
I really like watching videos for my learning pleasure..
I can't say enough about InterNachi, I'm proud to be a member.

One thing though, the music could have been toned down a bit. I had to adjust the volume up and down. I turned down the volume because the music was so loud then when you started i couldn't hear you. Turn it up to hear you and then when the music came on again I thought it was going to blow my speakers. Mixing Audio can be tricky, but great first run. That was the only frustrating part I experianced.

Enjoyed the course. Good information. Have to agree that the music and flash graphics were a bit on the annoying side. I still enjoy all the great information you all have put together.

I can't say I have ever seen this before. This thread has 25 posts. Out of those, 5 of them were from first time posters. I've seen 1 or 2, but never 5 new posters on one thread. Interesting.

You don't follow the Door Prize and free stuff threads very often, do you?
