I recently performed a Wind Mitigation and 4-Point inspection on a home here in Florida. I ran into 2 issues I never anticipated and wanted some feedback from more seasoned vets out there.
*The dead-front panel on the electrical panel had drywall encroaching it so much that I was not able to remove it without damaging the wall. I opted not to remove it and damage the wall, and thus, I couldn’t inspect the panel properly. I did report the issue as such, but feel like it could be viewed as a convenient excuse, which it really wasn’t. Was this the right choice?
*Wind Mitigation - I am sometimes having an issue seeing the roof-to-wall connections in some homes clearly. Sometimes, it’s no problem. However, in this case, I could not navigate close enough, and the blown-in insulation was so thick it obstructed them anyway. I then tried my Depstech scope camera from exterior holes in the soffit, but to no avail. Any advise? How would you report this?
I feel like I was unable to successfully complete the inspections, but since I “observe and report,” I did achieve that and can’t help the condition of the house. Thanks for some direction.
