The Inspection and Report
My standard home inspection is a non-invasive evaluation of the visible and accessible interior and exterior structure, systems and components.
An inspection typically takes between two and three hours to complete, depending of course on the size and condition of the home. If you are able to be present, you will see me follow a detailed checklist as I scrutinize the various systems and components of the home. I take nothing for granted, as it is not impossible for a five-year-old house to have as many problems as a fifty or one hundred-year-old home. I take digital photographs of any defects or possible issues I encounter, and I'm more than happy to answer your questions and explain my findings to you. There's a chance I may not have all your answers right then and there, but by the time I submit your report to you, I will have utilized all the resources I have available to provide those answers.
I prepare my clients' reports using Inspector FX software. I have checked out most of the report-writing softwares out there, and Inspector FX is as clear, concise and easy to read as any. Most of the photographs I take will appear in your report, complete with a caption, description of the issue and a recommendation for alleviating it. Typically, you will receive your completed report via email within hours of the inspection. And if email is not an option, I am more than happy to discuss alternate means of delivering your report.
I strongly encourage you to take a look at this example of what you will receive:
