I just wanted to get some feedback from the other inspectors here.
Do you or don’t you go onto roofs to inspect? There are some companies that specifically say they do and some do not. It could open up a can a worms if perhaps, you go up, step on a loose shingle knocking it off then slip and ride down the hard way. The company I work for generaly doesn’t walk the roof unless there is cause to investigate something that can’t be determined from the ground w/binoculars or from the attic.
In the case above, you would be liable for the repair of the roof and your own hind end.
