Main breaker question

NACHI - Thu, 06/20/2013 - 15:17
I'm looking at a 100 amp, Square D panel. The cover cannot be removed due to blockage by fireplace.

The main breaker's two levers are missing the cap that ties them together.

Is this a noteable problem? What is the hazard?

Widows 8

NACHI - Thu, 06/20/2013 - 13:54
Is anyone using a windows 8 platform for data collection on site or in the office for writing report? I am a HIP user and I am runiing my office on a window xp and my understanding is that in a few months windows will no longer support XP, so I am looking at updating and starting data collection on site. My thought is, why not get the most up to date program? :) Thanks

Summons as a witness

NACHI - Thu, 06/20/2013 - 08:46
I got a summons to go to court. The court is 5 hours away from my location. They sent a check for 230.00.
Can I request more money from the Lawyer??
I will loose $900.00 in inspection fees and also my travel and gas.
The lady called me due to a bad renovation. I performed an inspection on the home to find bad workmanship. He got 18 months of free rent and is going after her for another $16,000. The money and time involved was no where near the $34,000 dollars he is allegadly out for the reno. He even sub let the basement suite without telling her!
Just thought a little background on the situation was prudent. This is not what I will be saying in court. As a wise man once said: "just the facts maam".

Twice in one day

NACHI - Wed, 06/19/2013 - 21:23
DIY'er decides after watching too many Fix & Flip shows that he can make some easy money...........so he purchases property, fixes it up, land contract and the only thing left is the home inspection.

I get there and see red flags all over the place.......I do inspection and then agent calls me when I finish up......told her that I suspect her so called investor friend did renovations without permits and is not licensed.

I get a call 5 minutes later and sure enough he admits to everything.
I advice him to get in touch with county and not do any more jobs without being licensed and permitted.

Head to next job and lo and behold.....same thing except this time DIY and buyer get into big argument............not good.

I just don't feel sorry for these guys...........

FLOOR JOIST to ADDITION SEEM UNSOUND

NACHI - Wed, 06/19/2013 - 19:28
Addition to house had the floor joist 2x8 tied into original joist going to opposite way, with no bracing underneath. Locked like to me the original floor joist were slightly raised. Outside wall had been torn down and garage with bedroom above was added beside the original basement garage. Hope these pictures help. Would this be structurally sound.
