  1. Marc is right about the nhie. I think the part about leaving climate related topic out is not so correct 'tho. read all of it (them).
  2. will you be doing "abroad" inspections? just sayin' Marc stated what most seasoned inspectors would tell you. I think you may have missed the point
  3. I don't like the color. It is a generic site with a "fill in the blanks" look. Also the emphasis on being a well rounded contractor tells the client you are relatively new as an inspector. have you passed the nhie, ashi, iinternachii etc? just my opinion
  4. Marc's proposition has merit. I, also, am 99.9% against interior systems.
  5. I'm with Jim. That is not a popcorn ceiling and if it was there are several coats of paint encapsulating any thing. Read something about the characteristics of asbestos; it is a crystal, hard, brittle, and not transdermal. Do NOT grind, sand or otherwise abrade it. Look up pixels ala asbestos. relax. there are a bizzilion products with asbestos today.
  6. mostly you are wrong. if you can post something meaningful from the Philippines, please do so.
  7. not a bad idea, but one that is very rare in this business. you have a good starting point and seem to have the right attitude! Good Luck
  8. Sarcasm - I do not know many expert surgeons or attorneys that work at it part-time and keep their full time job at the hardware store.
  9. I agree with everything written above. Not 100%, but mostly. Commercial is a completely different process for me and my company. There are many aspects of the inspection business including commercial, legal, residential, investment, reserve study(s), construction draws, and on and on. Likely you could find your "specialty" and succeed with your background. I believe there is more profit in the pre-sale residential market. You have to have the sales/numbers and therein lays the rub. Simply look at the job as a business. I don't know the answers and would question those that seem to know everything. I like Jim k's statements about being black and white. Don't be mealy mouthed.
  10. formed in place. not uncommon in parts of mid-michigan.
