Learn how to write your own inspection report narratives in this free online webinar with InterNACHI’s Ben Gromicko. We’ll demonstrate AI-generated narratives and talk about “inspect,” “describe,” and “report” in the Standards of Practice and writing in the past tense. We’ll show where to get samples of narratives and inspection checklists. We’ll also talk about Describe, Determine, Implication, and Direction (DDID).
Just my opinion but no way I’m gonna let some computer AI dictate what I am thinking. It’s cool and all what Y’all are doing but I like to think for myself and computers / technology make mistakes all the time.
All great points, Ben.
Three simple rules to follow. “Inspect,” “Describe,” and “Report”
Inspect the structure, system or component. Describe the structure, system or component you inspected.
Report on the structure, system or component you are on.
Roofing. Inspect: Three Tab Shingles. Describe Three Tab Shingles. “Granular loss. Cupping, Clawing.”
Report: Observations. Recommendations. Limitations.
Observation: Roof: Shape, Gable. Covering: Three tab shingles. Observations: Granular loss. Cupping, Clawing three tab shingle tabs. Raised Shingles, posable lifting fasteners.

Keep up the great work. Ben!
