As part of your home inspection, you will get a detailed and comprehensive inspection report, which will serve as your guide for as long as you own the home. It not only describes the house components and their condition, but also provides insight into what improvements will be necessary, and when.
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 will likely find more detail is required, and that is when the body of the report becomes most useful.
For those requiring further explanation, the reference material in the report provides additional insight. I provide a detailed and easy-to-understand inspection report complete with tips and recommendations. Finally, I refer to, and provide an online copy of the 472 page Home Reference Book, the encyclopedia of homes to all clients; this serves as a excellent reference tool to home owners!
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.
