It takes a full time inspector 100’s of inspections to develop the eyes, ears and nose for hunting down problems. Part time inspectors simply do not have the time in the field to develop that radar. Be sure to ask how many inspections the inspector conducts annually and how many years he/she has been doing them. A quality full time inspector does at least 200 to 300 inspections annually – blind inspectors conduct 50 to 100 inspections annually. Conducting 200 to 300 inspections each year requires extensive referrals by prior clients, lenders, real estate agents and others – so there is a much greater chance the inspector is not blind.
Expert Building Inspection conducts 250 to 300 inspections annually, with over 2000 inspections completed.
