Re: Prelisting Inspections for Home Buying Website?

Agreed but this was part of the plan pitched. In other words it is a "Middle Man" operation that would take a large cut of what you might have charged.

Re: Prelisting Inspections for Home Buying Website?

Unfortunately for them there will be plenty of ignorant Inspectors willing to work for little and assume the liability when the proverbial poop hits the fan. They will be required to use the...

Re: Prelisting Inspections for Home Buying Website?

Once you are able to quote the paid fee per inspection you may receive more responses. Otherwise you would be wasting your time chasing possible participants once they hear the fee might not be what...

Re: Prelisting Inspections for Home Buying Website?

What type of "commission" are you speaking of and how much would it be?


Would the commission be paid at the time of the inspection?


If you are considering offering this is Texas have you...

Re: Conventional Roof bracing

Where is the home located (City, County, State)?


Did the build contract or plans specify the version of any building codes that would be used?


If the home is required to be built to...

Re: Conventional Roof bracing

Unfortunately anybody can sue anyone else for anything these days. With what you have posted so far I would be curious about several things.

Re: Conventional Roof bracing

The vertical braces appear to be excessively/improperly spaced at over 4' OC. Unless we know the species of wood for the rafters, the horizontal distance from the top plate of the wall below the...

Re: Conventional Roof bracing

First off the purlin is the horizontal member that is actually contacting the rafters. Strongbacks come in many forms and uses so it is best just to refer to a purlin as a purlin. Purlins are then...

Re: Conventional Roof bracing

Not quite sure what you are asking? Are you speaking of a series of purlins along a run of rafters with a break between the purlins? Are you talking about parallel sets of purlins spaced for very...

Re: Free 2-day educational event for inspectors in McKinney, Texas on Feb 1.-16, 2019

TPREIA classes always wind up being very good and the Simpson Strong-Tie facility is a very nice place to have them.

Re: Inspector Advisory Council update.

Seems they blindly follow their leadership without questioning anything. It gives the impression they have no ability to think for themselves.

Re: Inspector Advisory Council update.

That pretty much summarizes what most if not all licensing has become. It has moved away from consumer protection, if it was ever there, and toward a means of controlling and harming those who...

Re: Looking for affirmation of what I think I called out correctly

A little anecdote. Over the years I, like others, have been telling clients if they have problems to take it to the AHJ. This AHJ never had a set procedure to handle buyer requests/complaints and...

Re: Looking for affirmation of what I think I called out correctly

It looks like two pieces where they basically notched the whole thing out at the end except that short piece resting on top of the horizontal member. That's why I was thinking they were trying to...

Re: Looking for affirmation of what I think I called out correctly

Unless it was specified in the plans (I seriously doubt it) then it appears to be a poor attempt at using leftover wood to to construct rafter runs. Can't tell from your picture but was the rafter...

Re: Has anyone used Recallchek?

How is paying to advertise for everyone else a "sell for the Inspector"? Do you also buy into all of the "Advertise on the back of our folder for buyers" questionable offers?

Re: Texas MIC question

A MIC inspection falls under the TREC rules and requires the use of the REI 7-5 report form. When was the last time you read the preamble to that form?

That appears to be a Grundfos Comfort System series pump with a timer. They have an approximate 6 GPM flow rate with almost immediate max flow when activated. The Rinnai WH only requires <1 GPM...
