IDENTIFYING BULK WATER INTRUSION AT THE EXTERIOR WALLS
Wednesday, January 23rd, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
One of the biggest problems facing inspectors of newer homes is bulk water intrusion at the exterior walls, which can lead to mold problems and rot. This class will help home inspectors identify water intrusion while conducting a home inspection, with a focus on stucco, ACMV, wood siding and vinyl siding. Most of the inspection methods shown in this class exceed the ASHI SOP, but are not considered to be intrusive. This class is taught by a home inspector, for home inspectors. This class incorporates numerous instructional videos demonstrating advanced inspection methods.
