Re: The new Shingle Gauge 2-Piece Sets are out. Every inspector should have the set.

How many times someone uses the agreement system is vastly different than knowing what type of ancillary inspections are included in the contract. Data you stated you gathered in this post...

Re: The new Shingle Gauge 2-Piece Sets are out. Every inspector should have the set.

Yep. I read 1/5 and the brain said 5%. My bad. That isn't my main point though. Data mining private documents without permission or notification is the big issue.

Re: The new Shingle Gauge 2-Piece Sets are out. Every inspector should have the set.

1100 out of 22,000. I would bet that the vast majority of those 1100 are small, independent inspectors as well. Large or even small multi-inspector firms most likely don't use it.

I can't...

Re: The new Shingle Gauge 2-Piece Sets are out. Every inspector should have the set.

Considering those that use your contract program probably amount to less than 5% of the inspections nationwide, the numbers have no significance.

And before you say that isn't true, how many of...

Re: The Importance of a Education

You would think he would know that it should be "an Education", not a Education.

But then he is nothing but a spammer. Get rid of the post and the access.

Re: more than one GFCI on circuit

If they were redundant, I would call it out.

At the same time I have my 2 bathroom receptacles and the front exterior receptacle on the same circuit. I have the 2 baths on one GFCI but fed the...

Re: The new Shingle Gauge 2-Piece Sets are out. Every inspector should have the set.

There is no hard, fast, data. Unless someone uses the NACHI system to send out contracts, there is no data available for inspectors. And if NACHI is pulling information off contracts sent on their...

Re: Question about Federal Pacific

How do you know it is "in great shape" unless you removed breakers?

What better way to get a bogus CMI title when you don't perform full home inspections. :roll:

Re: Lead based paint

Even the newest paint will do this if the surface is not properly prepared. Could be moisture or could be real old. With that amount, they will most likely meet the thresholds for lead based paint...

Re: Water shutoff valve Type?

Well if I am not mistaken, that is the meter above to the right. This is a common brass meter ball valve attached to the meter riser. (An HB-2) Same type as you would find at a modern street meter...

Re: Do you operate old, operable skylights?

If it is supposed to operate, it should be tested.

As for the "representational", I think that is a friggin cop-out for lazy inspectors in some cases. That should be used only for stuff you can't...

Re: Wanted Home Inspectors. Washington

Glad I am retiring with the lowballers moving in. A single inspector at those prices is bad enough but to then only get a portion of an already low fee is even worse. Those fees are from 15-20...

I would be more interested to see what type of diagonal bracing there is for the deck.

Re: Ledger Attachment?

With the limited view, I would say with the beam present, the deck is free standing and the ledger is probably not even attached to the home.
