10:20 am – 10:50 am ET

Presenting Switch

Presenter: Dave Theus, Tenney110

Switch is a proprietary technology company that creates an easy-to-use digital library of a home’s appliances and systems by scanning the data plates and auto populating essential documents — think owner’s manuals, energy guides, recall checks, installation guides, dimensions, and more. Homebuyers can access item details in home inspection reports and through a free mobile app. Join us for a demo and feedback session.

11:00 am – 1:00 pm ET

Identifying Exterior Water Problems

Presenter: Reuben Saltzman, Structure Tech

One of the biggest problems facing 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, focusing on stucco, AMSV, wood siding, and vinyl siding. Most of the inspection methods shown in this class exceed home inspection Standards of Practice, but they are not intrusive. This class is taught by a home inspector, for home inspectors. This class incorporates numerous instructional videos demonstrating advanced inspection methods.

1:10 pm – 1:55 pm ET
