New member in North Texas
Good morning and Happy New Year!
Shortly after Hurricane Katrina roared through Louisiana, I became an insurance adjuster. Having worked property claims for almost 10 years, I was relatively comfortable with my construction knowledge.
When my wife and I bought our current house, the information shared by the home inspector went in one ear and out the other. I realized I had a deficiency in what I thought I knew. Since I was still handling insurance claims, I decided to attend training for home inspectors to help offset what was missing and be a better adjuster. In addition, the next time we buy a house, I will have a much greater understanding.
Upon completion of the training and subsequent licensing, my insurance adjusting has improved dramatically, often identifying construction errors, grading issues, as well as pointing out safety concerns. I perform several home inspections a month as a home inspector, and as any good inspector would do, continue to learn.
I stumbled upon this site and liked what I have seen so decided to join and become better. Though licensed as a professional home inspector, I know there are areas for me to increase my knowledge and I look forward to gleaning as much as possible through the contributions here.

Lots of valuable information here in the archived or previous posts, and don't be afraid to jump in. There are many other members here from Texas as well, I know your State has a particular protocol to follow when it comes to Home Inspection.
