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, and 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.
