Most home inspectors in Hawaii
have little or no construction experience - they've
never built a house, they do not know how to read building
plans, and they can't identify structural problems.
Many do not even know what are the proper sizes of framing
components, or even if the nail size is correct. Many
home inspectors have no idea how the electrical system
works or if the wiring is safe.
