She say's I need 100%, I say you can't have it. Draw inspection Hobbs, New Mexico.

At this draw inspection in Hobbs New Mexico, the borrower asked me to give her 100% showing in the reports back to the lender that the home was finished.

But the home was not finished. She told me the home would be finished today. It was at Four in the afternoon already and the day was about to be finished.

As I inspected this home for the so called last draw request, there was still a lot of things that needed to get finished.

Here is a shot of the gutters being installed. Only about half of the gutters were installed. That leaves half undone.

Gutters are being installed.

I asked if the gutters were going to have rain stops installed to SLOW down the waters speed when it comes off the roof. The installer said they had no plans on installing anything but the gutter system.

I believe this will be an issue in the future for the home owners.

The dead bolts were not installed at last inspection. The home owner said they were being delivered by UPS today. And would be installed. But "They are not installed". This means no 100% for the report.

No dead bolt yet.No hardware yet.

None of the hardware was completed.

This home is at 95% complete. I wish I could have given them 100%, but things are the way they are.

This is why you always get a "Trust but Verify Draw Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.

Have a great day every one.

Clint: You have to call it how you see it and in this case the home was not 100% complete.

Hi Michael.

I did what I told you I was going to do.

On to the post. That was my feelings as well. This is why pictures are so important.

Have a great weekend recovering from your trip in Brentwood.

Hi Rob,

Many think "It will  be o.K." to do this. But get caught one time and I am out of business with these guys. Word spreads fast.

Have a great weekend in Bristol.

My friend does new construction inspections and because he has to provide photos of everything he cannot be swayed to be ultra generous during the inspections. Besides it is not right.

Hi Debbie,

This is why there are pictures. If things are not done even at 99% then it's still not done.

Have  great day in Clarksville.

Hi James,

Knowing the way the job has gone for moths, I knew she would not be ready for a final. One more inspection and it should be completed.

Have a good day in Rogers my Friend.

No downspout for the front porch, just a gutter?  And is there flashing anywhere on that small roof over the window?  Is that how you do counter flashing there?

Hi Conrad,

Not really begging, but "A 100% would be very nice". I'm sure it would be I told her.

Until the home is fully completed. No 100%.

Have a good day in Webster my friend.

Hi Jay,

They are in the process of installing all the gutters and down spouts. I asked the owner of they were going to add a splash guard, but she didn't know. That means a NO in my book. I told her they needed to be installed because of the slab on grade foundation and size of the roof.

The flashings are in place. I got pictures back when the eterior was still open. It has since been closed up with the fianl coat of "Drivit exterior stucco coating". There is no kickout flashings though.

Have a great day in Bristow.

Clint, the homeowner has her timeline off and you are doing what is right for the homeowner and your reputation...why are people in such a hurry to have things done wrong!

She should not have asked.

If she wants to compromise, let here do so in matters that involve herself only.

Asking another professional to compromise is wrong, wrong.

Hi Ginny,

The home is behind schedule for about a month or so. She is wanting to IMHO not have to pay for another inspection.

Have a great day in North Kingstown.

Hello Wayne.

So True, 100% or not 100% wanting it to be is a lot different than it being 100%. Not done is not done.

Have a good day in Fort Myers.

Hi Lenn,

As a true professional i will not compromise when it comes to reporting the facts and only the facts.

This means not done is still not done.

Have a good day in Loudoun County.
