TOPIC: Best Report Template that is current

Re: Best Report Template that is current 3 years 8 months ago #62750

Hi, I am a new inspector. What is the preferred HIP residential home template to use? I see the directions say to load the default template but is residential 1 or 2 a good start? Thanks

Hi Bryan,

It's all personal preference. There's also two dozen more templates you can download here on the message boards. For new inspectors though we recommend the default template as it guides you through the process more and you're less likely to forget things.

As Bob said,  the absolute BEST TEMPLATE is the one that you take the time to put together yourself.  This program is so easy to make changes and develop, there is really no excuse to not have a template or 2 or 3 that fit YOUR inspection protocols as well as the specific SOP that you utilize.

Look folks, this is a business.  Unless you are performing 2-3-4 inspections per day and don't have the time, there is plenty of time EVERYDAY to sit and work on YOUR BUSINESS.  But then if you are performing 2-3-4 inspections per day, you wouldn't be concerned about borrowing someone else's work.  Coke doesn't share their best, or any recipe with Pepsi and inspectors that put in dozens or hundreds of hours writing their libraries and templates are not going to share their best work either.

Instead of writing on the message board and waiting hours and hours for responses, you could have a good template already put together.  One need look no further than Dom himself who is working from 8am until midnight or 1am almost everyday.  He has built a great business and is expanding all the time.  Something that each of you can do as well with hard work.

You can always try and use a "one size fits all" borrowed template, or you can customize to meet YOUR BUSINESS.

Good luck.  Work hard, work safe.

There is nothing sweeter than the smell of fresh cut grass on a baseball infield, the click of a wooden bat and the taste of a hot dog at a warm sunny daytime double-header.

The templates that you'll find here are like a recipe. You have to adjust them and tweek them to your taste and then do it again and again, until you think you have it just right and then tweek it again.
I take some time after every few inspections to go over my template and make changes. By doing this I really find out about the flexibility of HIP.
It's an on going process with no end in sight, and that's OK.

I've tried tons of ways to edit my template but still the bullets have areas were some are spaced and some aren't, even under the same section.  Looks sloppy.  I can't figure out how to generate stationary either so my logo is cropped on the cover page.

3 years later and you're still having problems? You better set up a one on one training session. Dom can make that happen for you.
