The length of any specific report will depend on what is discovered during any particular inspection.
It is usually lengthy and includes narratives that clearly describe problems and suggest solutions, as well as photographs.
To keep a license, 21 hours of approved continuing education coursework must be completed every two years.
My own path to becoming licensed included completing an additional 118 hours of approved coursework and passing Inter NACHIs own examination in addition to the state exam.
It’s a tough examination, the passing scores are 80 percent or better, and only about 45 percent pass on the first try. Further, I personally aim to complete at least 50 hours of approved continuing education coursework every year.
My philosophy is that by satisfying additional requirements above and beyond what I am required to demonstrates a commitment to the profession and shows that I have enough knowledge about residential construction and inspections.You will be charged by credit card on completion of the inspection but prior to delivery of the inspection report.Yes, I am licensed in New Hampshire, license #00562.I am also an Inter NACHI (International association of Certified Home Inspectors) Certified Professional Inspector, #17081434.I also carry general liability and errors and omissions insurance coverage. To become an inspector in New Hampshire the requirement is to complete 80 hours of approved coursework, pass a difficult written exam, and possess insurance coverage.It takes only a few seconds to plug a tester in to see if an outlet functions, is grounded, and, if it’s a GFCI model, is safe. It is quite usual for me to take more than 200 photographs during an inspection, and sometimes far more than this.Using photography enables me to slow down and home in on defects.It takes longer to inspect a large home that contains multiple problems than it does to inspect a simple small space.For this reason, I shy away from committing to how long it will take to conduct an inspection.Standards dictate that roofs can be inspected from the ground.In order of preference, my approach is walk the roof.
