Hello, and welcome to the first posting of The Home Inspector Lady blog!
My name is Edie Sherwood (that’s E-dee, not Eddie) and I am a licensed Home Inspector and Office Manager for Area Wide Inspections in Lubbock, Texas. My husband, Robert, is also a licensed Professional Home Inspector and we work together to provide, among other things, quality home inspections.
I am a female home inspector in a 98% male dominated industry, so I will be posting about more than just the nuts and bolts of the industry, but also the human aspects of this business and how home inspections can affect people’s lives. The purpose of this blog is to help people understand the home inspection process, terminology and the practical realities of the sometimes confusing results of a home inspection. I will also be sharing with you some of the crazy and unusual experiences that come about in a home inspector’s job!
I invite you to email me questions about all things relating to home inspections and/or home maintenance. My hubby will also be available to answer questions, thanks to a wealth of knowledge from his background in code inspection, structure and construction. I will also be posting (hopefully) helpful information for buyers, sellers and Realtors alike.
So feel free to email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and I also look forward to your comments and insights as well!
