I have a general question for a more experienced inspector. From time to time I come across attic scuttle holes that are difficult to enter or impossible. I am able to grab a few photos with my camera while sticking my arm through the hole but should I be reporting like this or do I open myself up to more problems by not being able to fully inspect all the systems within the attic such as ventilation, insulation, framing, etc?
I guess one thought that arises is, when I try to enter but then realize it can’t safely be done and see a defect from the bottom of the opening while standing on my ladder looking up, what should be done then?
If I call out one defect there are probably more I’m sure that was simply not visible. Would like to hear others and there thought on this situation.
