Be nice, David!
Yea your right.
Need to be nice to the new guy…
Just got done with a 70 page HI Report follow-up inspection where the HI called out everything except his mothers fallen arches!
“Recommend further evaluation”. Every darn thing!
3 HAVC units failed the 20 degree drybulb test with a vacant house 90 F, 87% rh.
You know I’m hot under the collar!
What did you write, instructions on how to repair everything?
No, what was actually broke and what was not. What is normal wear and tear and what actually had to be replaced (not evaluated further). I was there to do the rest of his job!
That the R-Value of refrigerant pipe insulation does not effect the performance of the HVAC equipment…
I never tell anyone “how” to fix something. Just make the problem go away!
If they want a brand new house, go buy one (good luck with that).
When you buy a used car, you don’t always get new tires, but the ones you get must hold air and be safe to operate on. Simple as that.
I am so sick and tired of “scared” Home Inspectors this week! They can’t make a decision and are afraid of their own shadow to a point they make everyone’s life miserable from diarrhea mouth!
It took three people to sit down and read this report and figure what needed to “really” be taken care of. A Real Estate Broker, an Engineer and a Home Inspector to “translate” for them.
