Inspecting Essentials

This course provides information to assist inspectors in recognizing construction flaws and hidden structural issues commonly overlooked during an inspection. Being able to identify the warning signs directs the inspector to the problem areas for more complete and accurate reports. The course includes actual examples of warning signs and the corresponding problems, many of which result in costly repairs for the homeowner.
