Dealing with building inspectors: Canadian Contractor wants your stories
Our upcoming story will help contractors to better handle their relationships with building inspectors of, ahem, "different levels of professionalism"
By Steve Payne
Our September issue of Canadian Contractor will include a story about building inspectors: the good, the bad and the ugly.
If you’ve had an interesting experience with a building inspector – positive or negative – we would like to talk to you. You can talk “on the record,” for attribution, or you can tell us your story anonymously.
Maybe you’ve had a building inspector help you to solve a problem on-site, provide good advice or expertise. Maybe you’ve had to deal with an egotistical jerk on a powertrip.
If you’ve like to be interviewed, please send a brief summary of your “encounter” to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or post it here, for everyone to see.
Our goal is not to run the profession of building inspector into the ground, but to publish an article that will give tips on how builders and renovators can work more effectively with different types of building inspectors, with different backgrounds and personalities.
