Inspection tools

Recommended Posts

I am new to the inspection business and am needing some advice on what tools / meters would be a must to start and which ones I could hold off on for a while.

I have many of the needed items but when trying to figure out what I must have now I'm suffering from information overload !!

Any advice is appreciated !!

Moisture meter

set of screwdriver bits and small sockets

assortment of screwdrivers
