Ace Your Next REAC Inspection With Full Confidence!

REAC Inspectors are ill-equipped and inexperienced in recognizing non-industry standard (NIS) repairs. When a REAC inspector says something “doesn’t look right”, you will most likely be prepared to discuss why the repair is acceptable—without realizing that most REAC inspectors are not qualified to judge most NIS repairs. As a property owner, manager, or maintenance professional, it is vitally important for you to stay current with what information REAC is/is not imparting to its inspectors—so that you can avoid improper repairs and costly noncompliance penalties.

Get the inside scoop on how exactly REAC inspectors are interpreting NIS defects in this webinar by REAC inspection specialist Hank Vanderbeek. Vanderbeek will walk you through the NIS repair rules, and provide useful insight on how to stay compliant by making acceptable repairs. You will learn what repairs are acceptable and unacceptable, along with photo examples showing how to save points, get higher scores, and attract fewer REAC inspections. You will also learn the basic scoring structure to understand the effect of NIS defects, about high and low point defects, and other important items that REAC wants in good repair.

After attending this session, you will know how REAC inspectors currently interpret and apply NIS defects. You will be better prepared to mitigate high point defects and get a high score on your next REAC inspection without breaking your budget. You will understand when and where to make capital improvements, how to identify NIS repairs, and manage REAC inspectors’ inspection of important NIS defects. REAC inspectors frequently misapply the NIS rules­—what you need is this well-structured explanation of what is being taught about calling out NIS defects that is not readily available to others, and use that information to your advantage.

Session Highlights

This webinar will bring you up to speed with key areas, such as:

  • REAC’s lack of authority for requiring inexperienced REAC inspectors to judge a licensed tradesman’s repair work
  • What repairs REAC inspectors have difficulty in identifying as defects
  • Why a repaired defect is still a defect, e.g. a covered electrical panel hole covered is still a hole, or why a covered door hole is still a hole
  • Important NIS rule interpretations related to electric, erosion, vegetation, doors, walls, fences, downspouts, sprinkler heads, ceilings, etc.
  • How the NIS application can affect your score 
  • Dozens of unpublished NIS repair REAC inspector training photos for various defects
