HomeBook and a major concern summary will be given to the client at the end of the inspection.
The HomeBook is a complete home inspection report. The HomeBook includes
hundreds of pages of detailed information about the inspected house, as
well as, authoritative references, life cycles and costs, and a pre-settlement
walk-through guide. The HomeBook categorizes the house into eight major
sections, Structure, Electric, Heating/Air Conditioning, Plumbing, Basement,
Kitchen, Interior and Exterior. A Perspective Summary summarizes the overall
condition of the various house systems in comparison to houses of its
section of the book begins with a color coded and alphabetically indexed
Key Sheet and has three parts. The blue section itemizes the components
that make up the house and describes the components, their idiosyncrasies
and maintenance requirements. Essentially, the blue section is like an
owners manual for your home. The red section is the main focus of
the home inspection and includes a list of commonly found major problems
or concerns. Each problem has a letter code which indexes you into the
red section of the book. Every problem addressed in the HomeBook includes
a description of the problem and a What to/ How to section
to explain how the problem is fixed. In many cases, diagrams and references
to authoritative sources of information are provided. Finally, the white
section of the book addresses minor problems. While minor problems are
not the focus of a standard home inspection, the inspector will note the
minor problems he discovers while looking for any major problems.
following business day,
a perspective summary and completed indexed Key Sheets will be e-mailed, faxed or mailed to the client, client’s attorney, and client’s realtor upon the client’s request.
