I sure do not want to disagree with you as your name appeared on most of the InterNACHI courses I have taken.
You highlighted my comment.
I most certainly did not say-“easy money”! Inspecting roofs is not easy work. The greater the pitch the harder the work. I lost count on the amount of roofs I have been on.
I guess I forgot this is a Home Inspection site. That’s all an Inspector can do. I guess the roof is not part of the dwelling. Do not think out of the box. Inspector’s should just stick with home inspection’s. Stay of the roof, do not think you can do anything else, do not further your education, do not count any of your past experience, and Lord knows, do not think an Insurance Company will hire you for a “roof assist”, “roof assessment”, or a “roof inspection”, because the Insurance Company is not reputable. I vehemently and adamantly disagree with you, with all do respect!
Just because you are a “Licensed Home Inspector”, regulated by State Regulations, have SOP’s and Code of Ethics, are under possible review by the State that regulates your License–hell it means nothing. I am not an attorney or a judge, they are the ones that look at, and are involved with dissecting and interpreting the regulations and the letter of the law. They are the ones that direct depositions.
Forget about being a member of a well know respected organization that has a Code of Ethics, and SOP’s–InterNACHI! Does not count, or does it. My mistake for thinking this is a professional organization.
If you are talking about an “expert witness”. I would concur that a degree is important. You know as well I as I do that, actual experience weighs heavy on the subject at hand as to weather you can be an expert or not. A young Inspector out of the box, limited experience, lack of knowledge, real difficult to be an expert.
Again, you highlighted my comments–“does not know what he is talking about”. Shear conjecture on your part. What other facts do you have to form your opinion?
Hey, and nice job on the Green Course. 8 hours is too short for credit. Should be at least double. You had a lot of info in that course.
Open for amicable discussion anytime.
Have a nice weekend. Marc
