With this technology being still in its infancy (both in total and especially in the Home Inspection and Building Science fields, the sky is the limit!
I can’t tell you how many LISTING AGENTS I have impressed with this. They ask me for my card and refer me to their buyers and SELLERS!
I believe that this is a BLEEDING EDGE technology. When you are on the edge, yoy can get hurt, but your opportunity to be out in front of the pack is also in play. Just needs to be properly managed.
I, also, have been approached by many GCs and builders who want their new construction scanned.
Here’s how I have marketed.
I do draw inspections (every one does, it makes the gas money :mrgreen: )
After I do the work for the draw company, I ask the GC if I can take out the camera and take a look around. I tell him that I am writing courses for state CE and will keep the address and names out of it. He always agrees.
Then I show him the pictures. He is amazed ("You can see through walls!!!) and I show him the complex roof structure on the raised ceilings and rafters that are so much in vouge now.
Then (when it is raining and during other such “thermally friendly” situations, where his roofing sub didn’t quite get the roof vent or chimney flashing right or where his HVAC guy didn’t quite seal the attic vent insulation or where the windows are leaking water or cold air or where the plumber tightened the shower valves a little too tight and there is leakage or where the framer didn’t seal the rim joist properly and there is cold air circulating between the floor joists.
Or, I just show him the HVAC ducts in the walls or the cold and hot water pipe placement in the walls.
They think it’s FREAKIN MAGIC.
I even freak out the codies!!!
Then I hand them my card and tell them to give me a call, if they ever need me.
The smart ones do. The idiots, hey, I don’t want to work with them anyway. :mrgreen:
Hope this helps;
