New graphic shows how to perform a proper Pick Test.

Very, very nice!

IMO… It should be for “members only”!:wink:

Thats cool I like that…:cool:

Nice graphic Nick, and thanks for sharing.

**The pick test is a simple, subjective test that is useful in detecting decay near the surface of wood members.
With experience, the user will be able to identify fungal decay more readily and detect the subtle differences between decayed and non-decayed areas.:):smiley:

Nice, helps us “newer” inspectors have a definitive answer

Nice images.

If that is a pick test, then what sort of test is this?

They replaced the beam, but left the rim board “as is”. Very smart move.


Nice Pic. Thanks Nick. Didn’t know there was so much in the library. Great info.
