Absolute top shelf computerized reporting!
Typically, the complete inspection report will be 70 to 80 pages long and includes a description of the property, its various systems and components. Digital photographs are included to enhance understanding and documentation. The report will also detail the inspection process, specifically identifying what was inspected and how, or what was not inspected and why. A Complete Wood Destroying Organism, WDO, inspection and report is also performed with every inspection at no additional charge. Click on "Sample Report" on the left to view a copy of an actual report.
To facilitate Real Estate transactions, inspection findings are distilled into a summary in PDF format which is e-mailed the same day along with the WDO report. This allows prompt attention to inspection findings without having to review the entire report.
Can a house fail a home inspection? No. A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of a house. It is not an appraisal, which determines market value. It is not a municipal inspection, which verifies local code compliance. A home inspector, therefore, will not pass or fail a house, but rather describe its physical condition and indicate what components and systems may need major repair or replacement.
What if the report reveals problems? No house is perfect. If the inspector identifies problems, it doesn’t mean you should or shouldn’t buy the house, only that you will know in advance what to expect. If your budget is tight, or if you don’t want to become involved in future repair work, this information will be important to you. If major problems are found, a seller may agree to make repairs.
