I receive many calls from potential clients(owners/sellers/buyers/renters) that are looking for someone to find a problem. Most are water related.
For example a roof leak that continues to occur after a roofer has come out and stated no issues with covering or flashing’s.
This particular home has a masonry chimney and sounds like there are fractures in brick/mortar and most likely the water is penetrating into the attic from the chimney/flashing.
I get maybe 12-24 calls a year. I have turned them away for various reasons.
Now I would like to start doing investigative studies.
How do you base your fee on a specific area. How can you know before arriving the amount of time/report needed.
Anyone offering investigative studies as a service?
I get calls for bed bugs, animals, vermin in walls/house.
Mostly moisture related.
