There are issues , that need to be addressed.
Yes sometimes you give repair options to the client in due dillagence.
(excuse the spelling as my spell check is off on Chrome.)

Do I defer to Licensed personal (of course).But I do not hide behind SOP and disclaim everything as I hide shaking under a table.
I do everything I can to help my clients , and my business growth shows it.
Stay honest and give the best advise you would give your Grand ma.
Thats my secret and do not mind sharing it.

I may have started out that way, but I like referrals and get them.
Clients know when you really care .I am paid to give my opinion and do that as best I can.
I hope you are with me .
