Re: GoFundMe started for family of Inspector killed in Florida

I'd assume he was ''inspecting a roof'' from the ground using that pole which came in contact with the main service lines which electrocuted him.

Re: Any former HomeHubZone users switched to Spectora

This is helpful. Hopefully more will comment. I'm looking into Spectora. I've been with HG for over a decade.

I need a software that I can highly customize and adapt more for commercial needs.
