If you have to punt

Have a so & so take a look at it and have it repaired as necessary?

How 'bout "Have a so & so check this and have it repaired/replaced as/if necessay."

Well, I thought he was referring only to stuff that needs to be punted to a skillset outside of what we're allowed to figure out. For what we are allowed to figure out on our own, the way that Chad and Kurt have answered, is what I usually do.

However, how I answer in regard to other disciplines varies, but, regardless of the trade involved, it's always similar. I'll usually describe the issue, why I think it's a concern and then I close the comment with something like:

These are issues that I'm not qualified to comment on because I'm not a ______________(professional engineer, licensed architect, proctologist, etc.) In order to fully understand how these affect the ________, you should hire a _____________ to investigate them, tell you what the consequences of not correcting them will be, and give you an idea of what needs to be done to correct them as well as how much it's going to cost.

OT - OF!!!
