Thank you for the great input.
I have done a lot of commercial reporting in the past. I have also done about ten years worth of private residential consulting on home inspections. The difference , now that I'm trying to be legal with all the law's, sue happy people, and liability factors, I want to try to get the act together correctly.
From what information I have gathered some states do not even allow the check list type of inspection. They require a narrative report , and E&O insurance prefers this as well.
I've always felt that an individual using this type of reporting was not giving full service for information. (I hope I didn't offend anyone if they use that system, just an opinion.)
I respect the fact of taking the time to reflect and produce a much more sanitized thorough report than shooting from the hip and trying to get out the door.
I will take your advise seriously and in all, I probably will do the report from a lab top ( not yet purchased) or my home PC where I can sit back and go over my notes without a time constraint or some one breathing down my neck.
I see that people seem to lean toward the Palm-Teck, 3-D Inspection system, Inspect Vue R3, Nstpetor, Quick start 2000 Home and so many others It's difficult to know which is best suited for my needs.
I would like to keep it so that I can add pictures and insert my own language. At the same time I'm looking for something that is also well set up with add in defaults or selections.
Thank you for your great advice Guy's
