SAMPLE
REPORT!


First we take a quick overview tour of the house to familiarize ourselves, then we meticulously
review each of the following areas: Grounds, Exterior, Roofing, Heating, Plumbing, Electrical,
Foundation, Cooling, Interior, Kitchen, Bathrooms, Bedrooms and the Garage.

We inform you if the components or systems are serviceable or need further evaluation or
work. Our inspector takes his time with you, explains his findings as he progresses and always
has time for your questions - and you can be with him the whole way.   

Our findings are written in an informative, easy to read and understand report that you will
receive as a pdf file in your email typically the night of the inspection, Usually about 35-40
pages average length, it includes any digital photos taken during the inspection. You should
plan on 2-3 hours total time for a typical home inspection depending on size, findings and
questions you may have.

We are professional, but not stuffy. Bring what you need to be comfortable during this time.
That may include comfortable clothing if the heat is off, a chair if the house is empty or a
beverage if you need one. Bring a notepad to take your own notes, a digital camera or
camcorder, or a measuring tape so you can start planning where to put your furniture or what
curtains you'll need for the windows...but too many people make too much confusion: so please
limit the group to 4 adults.

THREE GOOD REASONS TO HAVE THE HOME INSPECTION

1. SAVING YOU MONEY - Small items now...but they can be very expensive later. A good example are rusted
tank bolts which cost only a few dollars to replace - but have one of them break and leak: thousands of dollars in
water damage happens.
2. TO EDUCATE YOU - Do you know why those tank bolts are rusted? Because many of us like to put the "Tidy
Bowl man's tablets in our water tank and they are actually corrosive causing non-stainless steel bolts to rust.
We will also give you info about things you can upgrade, when to do maintenance, how does a certain system
work, and much more.
3. THERE ARE VERY FEW CONTRACTOR REQUIREMENTS IN NEW YORK - Few contractors here in our area
have to take certified educational training or testing. Cousin Bob or Grandpa Jones may have installed it but
unfortunately they didn't always read the instructions. Let us look and tell you if it was installed by a qualified and
competent professional.
We don't make any
repairs or recommend
contractors on the
properties we inspect
so we have no reason
to find expensive
repairs.

We don't disclose any
information about the
results of the inspection
without your approval -
unless it is an issue of
imminent safety.
