Your home inspector will prepare an easy-to-understand but detailed report outlining the condition of your home and recommendations for repairs and maintenance. Some pictures may be included to help illustrate some of the issues the inspector uncovered. Within a few hours, the report will be emailed to you in PDF format. To help you prioritize your repairs, all components are rated as follows:
• Satisfactory: Indicates component is functionally consistent with its original purpose but may show signs of normal wear and tear and deterioration.
• Marginal: Indicates the component will probably require repair or replacement anytime within five years.
• Poor: Indicates the component will need repair or replacement now or in the very near future.
• Safety Hazard: Denotes a condition that is unsafe and in need of prompt attention.
Your report follows the Standards of Practice set forth by the American Society of Home Inspectors. You may view these standards at ASHI.org. A sample of the report is available to view here:
