Hey guys I’m a brand new green bean here…
Been doing construction for over 10 years and I am currently doing full remodels and additions just for a glimpse into my background.
That being said I LOVE tools... I have tools for my tools...
Anyway I pride myself on always having the right tool for the job and because of that I have 20k worth of sublime twisting turning cutting do hickeys that I love an excuse to break out and show off. I am a collector of sorts.
Ok to the point, I know everything I need to build a house from the dirt to the shingles and I have done it all. But as I enter this wonderful world of inspectorhood I am trying to be wise with my investment.
The question, if you had to say what you felt were the numero uno essential tools for residential home inspection what would they be? Also I would like to know brands for the best and medium grade options.
I am expecting my first little boy in a few months and therefore am trying to not be my normal self and buy everything at once. I want to ease into this business but don't want to buy redundantly or haphazardly.
Anywho! thanks in advance for the advice.
PS: I already have my 3D software inbound and I am planning to use my treo 650 pda as data entry point with my laptop as my report builder and do onsite printing/assembly of the reports. So I'm referring more to the inspection tool essentials at this point.
whew.. long email but hope to get to know you all!
