Once Ricky has completed the inspection, he will produce a written report which is normally delivered to the client via email. The report will contain information (with photos) explaining the inspectors findings.Here are some things to keep in mind when reading your home inspection report.
- Almost every home has some deficiencies, and often, the majority of these deficiencies are minor or related to newer building standards that may not have been in place when the home was built.
- It is not uncommon to have ten or more items marked as deficient on a home inspection report – even when the home is in good condition.
- Home inspectors do not have x-ray vision, and they cannot predict the future. There are many parts of a home such as under carpet, inside walls, and behind furnishings that cannot be seen or inspected. Although its rare, an item that is functioning today could stop working tomorrow, and your home inspector often has no way of knowing that something is about to stop working.
