Spectora currently offers the option to display contractor recommendations on defect comments, like a plumbing or deck contractor. So what happens if you want to recommend your local deck contractor by name?

You can now place trusted contractors of your choosing in the report. You can include their name, logo, and contact information. We also have a Get a Quote button!

💸 With Spectora Connect, we are striving to create new revenue sources for our inspectors on your own terms. You can feature these contractors for free, or opt to do a paid placement! Write in to the chat bubble if you'd like to discuss more ways to increase your revenue per inspection.

At the bottom of your report, you will find a section for Recommended Contractors where the information is displayed

Recommended Contractors also display at the bottom of the report Summary
