    Default New member from Florida Panhandle

    Hi Y'all,

    I'm actually new in the inspection field. I'm a state certified builder. After a few windstorm jobs on the beach, I was approached by one of the inspection companies about doing some inspections in the three county area, and have been inspecting ever since. Not before they made me do a little education. Anyway, I've enjoyed it. I'm also enjoying this website. I have already learned a lot from reading threads from many of you. I only do Windstorm, Roof, and 4-point inspections so you are all way ahead of me. Anyway . . . thought I'd say "hi."

    Welcome aboard, Jack.

    Is it really nice in Niceville? (Arrggg ... sorry, but it just came out. )

    I would see the road signs for Niceville whenever I went to Destin to help out the city there. I always went I-10 to 331 and south, coming from the east as I did, so never made it through Niceville.

    Actually Jerry . . . it is very nice in Niceville and of course we always have the Mullet Festival to look forward to every October . . . Niceville Florida Community Web Site | Niceville FL Community Web Site from Niceville, FL. Evidently you know your way around. We now have a toll bridge from Niceville direct into Destin which makes life much easier than going around through Freeport or Ft. Walton Beach.

    Since you are from Florida; do you know what is going on with the home inspection license law that goes into effect in 2010?

    Scott, basically I only know that it takes effect on July1st, and has several requirements that have to be met in order to become certified as a home inspector. Mold requirements are in addition to the standard requirements. There is a grandfather clause, but I don't see where it give you much space. Requirements still require testing and insurance, etc. Of course most of the home inspectors that I run across could probably already pass that test. It doesn't really affect me in the type of inspections that I do, but I plan on taking the course anyway.
