Home Inspection Reports

As a homeowner, you should always be aware of the condition of your home. A home inspection report can give you a good idea of the current condition of your home and what, if any, repairs or maintenance may be needed.

Here are some tips on how to read a home inspection report:

The first thing you should do is read the cover page. This will tell you the name of the inspector, the date of the inspection, and the address of the property.

The cover page will also have a list of any major concerns that the inspector noted. These should be addressed as soon as possible.

The body of the report will list all the different areas of the home that were inspected. For each area, the report will list any problems that were found, as well as any recommendations for repair or maintenance.

Be sure to read the entire report carefully. If you have any questions about anything you read, be sure to ask the inspector for clarification.

Once you have read the report, you should make a list of any repairs or maintenance that need to be done. Be sure to prioritize these items so that you can take care of the most important items first.

If you are not sure how to handle a particular repair or maintenance item, be sure to consult with a professional. And when you are ready, call The Home Exam Inc. at 386-322-4408 for top-rated home inspection services.
