Jay, no argument here. One other point though. People who hire inspectors should be aware that inspectores are legally liable for negligence. As you stated earlier, document, document, document.
Don't you love it? I say one other point and then add a second? Maybe I just talk too much. In states that have licensing laws, you cannot inspect without the license. Good and bad. Gives the state total control over you and I've never had a state organization help me and I've had 7 state licenses at one time.
