Hi all; just starting out and I did an inspection on a 100 year old home yesterday. I could not access the roof due to pitch and building height, so I used a camera on a pole to look and take pics. Can anyone who uses this method please offer some suggestions on wording this in the report, so I don’t get a client coming back and saying I failed to inspect the roof properly, missed something, etc?
Nothing wrong with using a pole camera.
You already have the proper terminology (verbiage means the use of too many words). Due to the pitch and height it would be unsafe to traverse the roof.
Now, using the pole camera is a creative “work around”.
Also check your insurance and make sure you are covered for walking roofs.
Keep up the good work.
