Are you overwhelmed or intimidated by larger-complex properties, commercial or infrared roofing, electrical or building science inspections?
DON’T BE and DON’T PASS ON THESE JOBS!!!
Contact me to assist you with the process of bidding, landing and conducting these very lucrative jobs while earning many times the high end home inspection fees and building your abilities to enter these professional inspection arenas.
don’t know for certain if it’s a direct result of this thread
that didn’t take long THANKS for turning me on to the 20k Infrared Roof Scan
they liked the concept once explained, price & signed the proposal tonight
now all you need to do is step up, take credit & earn while you learn…
if you don’t want to out yourself here & want to attend the inspection call or shoot me an email, confidentiality assured! email@example.com
I would also chime in on this thread I travel to any State that borders Okla and have worked in the past with two outstanding commercial and IR inspectors Barry Adair and Dave Andersen. I am also willing to help anyone get started in commercial inspections or scanning flat roofs and or electrical panels in large facilities. I have a extensive back ground in Mechanical industrial,commercial HVAC large chillers and cooling towers
As Dave and Barry stated don’t leave money on the table anyone in NACBI can help with the proposals thru the final inspections
Yes by all means call one of these professionals above and they can help you tremendously! Also don’t forget those with specialty skills as well such as EIFS and Stucco inspecting as I know Barry for one has that experience.
Can’t be said enough “Don’t leave the money on the table and don’t try to do it blindly”.
I’m in San Antonio. I haven’t done a commercial job yet this year but a Lil over 100 residential. I’ve had a couple of calls I turned down on commercial since I wouldn’t know where to start. I think doing the Inspection wouldn’t be as hard but bidding and writing. I use home inspector pro. Would I learn about writing on that template if I took a class? Do I need an infared camera to be effective? So much to consider?
By all means, go with these guys on infrared inspections and get some of the most valuable teaching possible. Mentoring will help you learn things that you will never read in a book. Inspectors helping inspectors at it’s best.!
2 IR depends on your biz model, clientele need or educating them of the added benefit
you can’t sell widgets to those that don’t need or understand a widgets use/purpose
you have to talk the talk before you can walk the walk
3 not really
when a call comes in find a competent comm & or IR inspector to team with until you’re comfortable on your own
many that have replied or are in the profession can walk you thru every step from 1st contact, proposals, agreements, inspecting, subs to payment & report delivery
all that have posted here are not afraid to travel if the monies are right
FWIW … the software application you use to generate reports does not make you or any one of us a good inspector. They are only a vehicle to present your inspection findings.
You happen to use HIP (a good application) and Dom also has templates available for the application as you have noted. They are helpful, but they don’t give you the field experience.
I happen to use Whisper Reporter (a San Antonio, TX based company). They also provide a great application for report generation, but it doesn’t provide ‘experience’.
Reach out to Barry and many others who have experience with IR and commercial to start learning.
I have 20-years commercial experience and that was before my 12 years doing residential. I no longer do commercial and I do not have an IR camera. Those are business decisions I’ve made for my company and I’m very pleased with those choices. Each of us has our own business model as Barry noted.
I refer many clients to others/specialists depending upon what they are seeking. I try to get the client what they need rather than just try to “sell them stuff” … that doesn’t make for a happy client.
i highly recommend http://nacbi.org/
