  1. i've worked a few "elderly-child endangerment cases" thru attys, 1 published in a 3 week newspaper exposé the attys were all large & in charge types, wanted what's best for the "innocents" & knew who, what. where & when further action, beyond their office was required if your atty isn't providing assistance & direction prob need a new-better atty

  3. some stats say falls are #1 cause of household accidents i clearly report the facts (you noted), advise replacement if situation warrants (i would based on your narrative of conditions present), costs be damned & let the client decide on how they want to move forward purchasing opp (other peoples problems) is an adult decision & adulting has become as rare as common sense

  5. i've worked the dfw & farther markets for over 24 years municipal inspectors will allow almost anything to pass & exercise sovereign immunity, they are not consumer protection advocates, they work for a system whose main purpose is to collect more taxes, improved property brings in much more revenue than a vacant lot that being said, there was a long period where "code required" wrb were not required over exterior substrate sheathing of any type for any exterior cladding glad to see you've encountered slight moisture intrusion vs. many of the props i've inspected I don't have Text Available please call or email only Best Regards, Barry Adair Owner-Professional Inspector-Moisture Analyst-Infrared Thermographer Commercial-Residential-Construction-EIFS-Stucco-Exterior Claddings Inspections TREC Professional Inspector License # 4563 Exterior Design Institute: EIFS-MA TX # 39 Texas Infrared: Level I Certified Thermographer National Association of Commercial Building Inspectors & Thermographers™ Member ID 12011-14TX NSPF Certified Pool Inspector CPI Operator CPO # 75-221486 ADAIR INSPECTION office: 972.487.5634 e-mail: adairinspex@hotmail.com website: http://www.adairinspection.com
