Here is a couple of thoughts on forms.
If you use software such as HomeGauge you may be able to get a the form you need from the software company. Last time I checked HomeGauge charged $99 dollars and it worked with your inspection software.
You can always use paper and just fill it out that way, not very professional
You could use a fill-able form( I have passed a couple of copies around)
With this type you would type it out print and have client sign, rescan and save.
You could use a fill-able form with a tablet, fill in the blanks have the customer sign and your done(except for pics)
For those that use a fill-able form Adobe Acrobat has a paper clip where you can attach pictures.
Now if you have a copy of Adobe acrobat(not the reader) you can save the form and insert pages. You could then add your pics with another program like Word, print the page to pdf and attach as another page.
I recently made a pdf form with another program but usable with Acrobat that will allow you to fill the form out, sign on a tablet and click to insert pictures. As with anything else it does have limitations. You can not insert or extract pages. To have client sign you must print it or have it signed on a tablet. The biggest disadvantage is you can not add pages later. Many of my forms have space for 6 pictures per page and sometimes three pages(18 pictures total for wind and 4pt).
The advantage to these forms is click to insert pictures or captions, if you do not insert something nothing prints. You have a client sign on a tablet and you are done, before you leave the property. I usually insert the pictures while they write the check.
I have spent considerable time and money making these forms. Does anyone have other ideas or a better way?
Here is a copy of my latest 1802 form
What are your thoughts?
btw the form may change again adding Home inspectors and removing MSFH.
