All good points. Thanks for everyone’s opinions. I just feel that If I am there and I do the inspection if I take a picture of something and say it is so that seems to be enough for everyone EXCEPT universal.
I get 2 kinds of calls from insurance companies.
1 calls saying they did not get the pictures. cause is customer faxes them report and did not send.
2 calls from universal saying photos are not good enough for one reason or another.
I get no other complaints from any other company.
I do not remember the clients name but this is how apparent the nails were. see attached. the first photo send was of a better looking area with the ruler clearly showing spacing. I would say the photo clearly shows a uplift resistance of 182 or greater.
My point is Universal should not be the ones saying what is acceptable and what is not the OIR should.
I have not heard back yet so the second attached picture may have done the trick.
As someone said earlier do what other inspectors do recommend another company.
If anyone asks who I should go with my answer would likely always be ANYONE BUT UNIVERSAL.
They are not the hand that feeds me.
By the way I almost never hear from the underwriters they complain to the agent I send them another photo or something and that is it. They are just the biggest and really only company I would call a pain in the a-s :mrgreen:
