I try to keep up with this sort of things that pertain to home inspections. I automatically get notices. Anyone can subscribe.

It's a good thing to post on the board. Once there's a few on here I'll make a section for them. It would be cool if guys who come across the items then post pictures of them.

What is good about signing up with the CSPC is that you automatically get information such as this. I think I am going to place a CSPC on my template. Then when I see that the recalls pertain to home inspecting I can paste them for when I do start my inspections as reference material for the client. I will place them in the appropriate home inspection category. What do you think?

That's definitely a good idea. Increases the number of pages and content on your site. I can't see that content being on a lot of pages no the net so it'll be somewhat unique. Then you can link to the page within your report.
