I take notes and pictures and answer your questions at the inspection site. This usually requires at least a couple of hours or more. Then back at the office I spend a few additional hours putting together a great inspection report. Then I email you a link to view the report online, you can save and download it as a PDF file and print a copies if needed. The report is interactive with informational hyper links included for additional information. It will contain digital photos detailing and defects or maintenance issues. The report is editable if I need to add addendum or make new versions if re-inspection is required. The link to the online report is active for at least 1 year from time of inspection.
The home inspection report you receive describes each of the major systems of the home, including:
- Insulation and ventilation
The report addresses the condition of each of these systems. Any recommended repairs, replacements or improvements are clearly documented. The report also includes a summary of significant issues for quick reference.
The summary is often the most important part of the report for people making their purchase decision. Once you’ve moved into your home, you’ll likely find more detail is required, and that’s when the body of the report becomes most useful.
For those requiring still further explanation, the reference material in the report provides additional insight.
Home safety tips
The report will provide you with a number of home safety tips, addressing everything from smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors to overhead garage door openers.
