I did a Wind Mitigation inspection recently and just received a phone call from the insurance agent stating that the home had been inspected by another company that he uses and that it had received a credit for having clips. He wanted to send me a copy of the report to see if I could use their photo showing a clip with 3 nails.
I tried to explain to him that when I inspected the home, the straps were too far from the trusses and that they only had 2 nails. (see attached photo). He insisted that the other inspector found a different strap that did have 3 nails.
I tried to explain that the other inspector must not have looked very closely as I saw several straps that were too far from the trusses and that I was required to report the weakest connection.
Needless to say, I will not expect any referrals from him.
