Your Home Inspection. What to Expect.
Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive report that you understand immediately in layman's terms. And if you don't , we take the time to explain what the problem is. No Hocus Pocus, No run around, only facts.
Here's what we put together for you.
Photos, Inspection Report and Report Summary
First, we take photos of any deficiencies we find during the inspection. Some standard photos we include in the report are: Front of the Home, Electrical Panel with the Cover Off, and a 360 degree set of shots of the interior of the Attic. (Our company was one of the first to do so). Second, we document these deficiencies in two ways, in our PDF Inspection Report and Hand Written Inspection Report Summary. Both are easy to read and understand.
On Site Reporting
At the end of the inspection we put the photos on a DVD for easy viewing on virtually any DVD Player or computer. You also receive the Inspection Report. Both report and DVD are given to you at the end of the inspection, yours to keep. We also review the report and photos at the end of the inspection with you and create a an Inspection Report Summary (typically a couple of pages in point form including recommendations) so you can easily discuss any deficiencies with your agent, or the Sellor/Buyer.
The PDF format is a great way to forward the report information to your insurance company, mortgage agent, or any real estate professionals should they require it. Itcopy.

Understanding Your Home
Included in the report are handy reference materials for every major system and components of your home. At the back of the book is a repair guide and should you wish to do upgrades, this will give you an idea on what to pay for various contractor services.
Your Participation is Appreciated
We invite you to take part in the process, ask questions and should you find any deficiencies you wish to include in the report, simply point them out. We will verify that it is a legitimate defect, take a photo, and include it in the report.
At the End of the Day
We will provide you with valuable information that will help determine if the home you are considering buying is sound, and what challenges, if any, you face in repairing any deficiencies we have encountered.
