It was not my intention to undercut any certified inspector when I originated the concept. I have been in the construction industry as a licensed general contractor for more than 20 years and know that the general public is not able to discern what to look for or who to hire to look for any defects in their home when it comes to safety issues. The few who do have some skills in what to look for can save themselves a lot of money and time by my do-it-yourself kit. As one of the members even stated, anyone can purchase any of the books about home inspection and code at any bookstore or on-line and do the same thing as what I am offering. By my display of NACHI as a resource, I am not only showing my credibility as a member of an organization of certified inspectors, I am also showing NACHI as a viable source to go to for a qualified home inspector. I take offense at the posting of my personal information and the inference that someone would intentionally violate my privacy and throw daggers at my honesty and integrity. If that is the basic premise of the members and NACHI to slander and threaten an individual for having a different idea, then it seems to me that the entire industry needs to do a reality check. I have not been a member or a certified inspector nearly as long as those members who chose to attack me so, how could I be such a threat to the organization and/or their members? I have invested a lot of time and money too. I take business and associations very seriously. However, now that I know what business I have gotten into, I regret that I did not research it further.
