DEAR BARRY: In one of your articles, you said, "The essential purpose of home inspection is to disclose property defects." If that is true, why don't home inspectors use the top tools of the trade, such as thermal cameras, borescopes, and moisture meters?

In my opinion, most home inspectors are retired general contractors with a lock on Realtor referrals.
