Inspection Report 2018-06-10T03:44:52+00:00

Understanding The Report

Below I have attached two reports that you may look through. I use the InspectIt Software. The most important pages are the first four pages on the report. The cover page, your invoice, report summary, and report overview. After the initial pages you will review the main sections and subsections. Each section will be outlined with colors to easily show the components condition. Green for satisfactory, yellow for marginal, and red for poor. Photos will be placed in the report in each section, so you are able to compare the color condition with the picture. The report is easy to read and is sent to you within 24 hours of the inspection in PDF. 

Items On The Summary 

    • Items not operating: This means that a specific component was either not operating or was shut down at the time of the inspection. If the breaker is off or the gas is shut off it is usually for a reason.
    • Major concerns: Also known as a material defect. A material defect is a specific issue with a system or component of a residential property that may have a significant, adverse impact on the value of the property, or that poses an unreasonable risk to people.
    • Potential safety hazards: This would be an issue that could bring your family, or other parties in your home, harm.
    • Deferred cost items: This section is for items that you should begin to put money aside for. Examples would be, a roof that is showing signs of wear, or an A/C unit that has met it’s useful life expectancy.
    • Items to Monitor: Homes have typical cracks due to expansion and contraction. One that would not be typical is a crack in a brick veneer over a window due to a rusted lintel. If there appears to be a new repair I will have you monitor it. This is to insure that in a few months the crack is not still active.
