Melery, I think I have done my research well. I go out and look at jobs in progress, talk with "local" contractors, have been offered jobs with them after talking with them. I have been told how much money one can make on "markup" island as they have referred to Marco Island.
When I talk shop with them as I am well versed in construction they shure like to brag alot about the costs of jobs on the island. Now I am not saying that all trades are bad on the island but what I say about the transplants is true I have seen it with my own eyes. Sad to say, most of your so called "contractors" see two things on Marco. 1st money, 2nd homeowners with money needing to have services done. This combination along with cronies makes for a bad situatuion. Like I said They are not pimples on butts.
Naples Rocket, I get inspections every day on construction projects. I do not care who the inspector is as long as they know the code and how to apply it. If it is someone I know the process does move smoother but if it is a good inspector he or she will write their own mother a violation if the job is not right plain and simple. But many times the buddy system kicks in and no one wants to offend so the job may pass by bare means and I will not stand for that. I want the right inspection so I am proud of my job and name not the bare min. that is how you gain respect in the trades. So rocket I do not care if I see a new face every time I welcome it.
So where does due process apply here? The job of the inspector is to apply the codes to protect all involved plain and simple. That is the only due process needed.
