I had a realtor wanting an inspection done on a burn out. I do not know the extent of the damage, but I am assuming it was repairable as he said that it was only the major stuff they needed reported. Has anyone ever done an inspection of this type and what are some of the things you really need to watch for?
To me a “burn out” is a tire burning rubber…
For a moment I thought he burned out doing inspections.
What to look for? depends on the damage left from fire.
Randy Mayo @rmayo has done some great graphics for burnt or charred wood that may help in this situation. You might want to search them for an FYI.
Good job Scott,
There are other graphics, but I would have to dig for them,
I have a template where I do major systems only. That may be what you need
Who is going to do the load calculations on what’s left of the framing wood members?
are You a general contractor with experience in fire restoration ???
I recommend replacing any lumber with 10% or more section loss.
I believe you are correct. I am fairly new and do not want to do a sub standard report. With no experience in inspecting a burned home, I referred him to someone that has done them before.
Thank you for what you sent.
No, that is why I turned the inspection down. There was too much I didn’t know about this.
I thought this post was going to be about Cece Deville.
a good call
…or someone who’s been overworked to tears.
You gotta start some time. go for it.
sorry Roy but in my opinion that is very bad advice…
