Home Inspector with Advance Look Building Inspections and Environmental Testing

When doing an inspection, undoubtedly you will come across something you haven't seen before. At least I know I do. Not all the time, but every once in a while a builder or a homeowner will do something that leaves you scratching you head. Where do you go to find out about the issue?

Here are a few websites I find particularly useful (most of the time): (especially the "forum", which I recognize quite a few of you from) (when I have a code question) (good for eletrical questions)

So, who has any other sites or resources they find particularly useful (especially if it is specific, i.e. plumbing, roofing, HVAC, etc.)?

I visit inspectionnews and the Inspector's Journal regularly.  I learn something almost every day.

 I keep a set of Residential, Building, Plumbing, Energy, Electrical, etc., codes on my desktop and in hardcover at my home office, and make sure they include or refer to the latest changes from the Georgia DCA.

On the web, I have downloaded and use the technical bulletins from The Brick Industry Association (  Tech Bulletins 7A and 7B, regarding water penetration resistance for brick siding, have been the most useful.

I also use the Air Diffusioin Council's ( "Installation" link a lot to back up my findings. has some excellent information regarding energy conservation, green building practices, etc., the page for the U.S. Department of Engergy's "Insulation Factsheet" is also a good on-line resource.  The government, for all its percieved faults, is a treasure trove of good building practices, if one spends the time to find the information.
