Inspection Report

What's Included In A Home Inspection Report?

The home inspection report you receive describes each of the major systems of the home. Each major system will be addressed in detail with any recommended repairs, replacements or improvements.

The home inspection report you receive describes each of the major systems of the home, including:

  • Roof
  • Exterior
  • Structure
  • Electrical
  • Heating
  • Cooling
  • Insulation and Ventilation
  • Plumbing
  • Interior

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'll likely find more detail is required, and that's when the body of the report becomes most useful.

For those requiring still further explanation, the reference material in the report provides additional insight.

Take a look at a sample report.

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.

Home maintenance tips

The home is a very significant investment for most people. Good preventative maintenance is a great way to protect your investment. Our home inspection reports include a maintenance section to help make sure that your home continues to be safe, comfortable, and efficient.

Report Resources

The information below connects you to a series of documents that will help you understand your home and how it works. The body of the report contains specific information about your home. Many report items have related links that provide you more information about that particular component or issue.

This library is a broad reference tool. For example, if you want to know the difference between asphalt shingles and wood shingles, you can look in here. If you have a conventional furnace and are trying to decide whether to upgrade to a mid-effciency or high-efficiency furnace, this information may be helpful. If your home does not have air conditioning, but you are thinking about adding it, there is helpful information for you in here.

The library is broken into nine house systems: Roofing, Exterior, Structure, Electrical, Heating, Cooling, Insulation, Plumbing and Interior. Click on any link below to read about the system.
