NWM Inspector FAQ

How does the NWM inspector network work?

NWM partners with lenders all across the country and supports their lending service with draw inspections.  We handle both commercial & residential.  You are responsible for assessing the progress of construction projects.  We then ensure that the funds are released in accordance with the completion of specific items &/or stages of construction.

How do I become a draw inspector?

To become a draw inspector with NWM, you need experience in construction or a related field.  You may apply through our website. We will reach out to you and schedule an interview.  From there if you are a good fit and we have an immediate need in your area we will move forward with the onboarding process.  Otherwise, if you are a good fit; however, there is no immediate need, we will add you to our network and reach out should an inspection be needed. We look for professionalism, clear communicators, punctual and tech-friendly contractors.

What am I required to do?

We ask that you document progress through photos and verify that the work outlined in a draw request has been completed before funds are disbursed. You will be responsible for inspecting the site, reviewing documentation (if necessary), and taking photos through our app. At times, there may be a small narrative required.  However, typically, we only assign photo only inspections.

Am I required to use your app?

Yes, most of our jobs are assigned to our inspectors through the app.  The app is where you will find the address, project details, notes and more.  All of the photos you take are taken through the app and uploaded in real time to our report writers. When the photos are published on site you do not need to do anything once you leave the inspection.    

Is there any cost to join the NWM inspector network?

No, it is completely free to join our network.  We have hundreds of inspectors all across the United States.  We pride ourselves in hiring the best of the best.  We identify and select consultants based on the scope of work and area needing to be serviced.  Typically, inspections are monthly; however, that is subject to change and fully based on the needs and requests by NWM.

How many inspections can I expect each month?

The number of inspections assigned to consultants each month depends on the location and how many requests our lenders send in. On average our inspectors can estimate anywhere from one to five inspections per month but will vary month to month depending on your location. Again, the number of inspections can never be guaranteed. Inspectors can expect most of their inspections to take place during the beginning or end of the month.

On average, how long does an inspector spend onsite?

The amount of time spent onsite depends on the size of the inspection, what phase the inspection is in, and what the inspection consists of. The best way to estimate time onsite would be to go through the inspection project yourself or with our support team before the due date to see what is required for the project and how large the site is.

What cities is NWM recruiting for?

NWM is always looking for talented individuals to partner with. We recruit when we have an inspection request in a new city that currently does not have an inspector. Our team will reach out to applicants once a project need pops up in your area.

“I have been a residential and commercial construction inspector working with Northwest Monitoring for 5 years and have thoroughly enjoyed not only the work but working with the NWM staff. They are professional, responsive and fun to work with and I have developed some wonderful relationships with several of them.  I am looking forward to continuing my relationship with the NWM team.” – NWM Inspector
