Understanding What Your Inspection Report Includes

If one of our licensed inspectors performs an inspection on your home, your report is presented and emailed on-site and you also receive a subscription to HomeBinder.com. Your personal HomeBinder account will include your inspection reports (Summary Report, Inspection Report, Wood Destroying Insect Report), inspection photos, educational videos which are site-specific to the home as well as additional resources uploaded to your online binder.

TRUST US AND THE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE TRUSTED THE HOME INSPECTORS BEFORE YOU, YOU’RE IN GOOD HANDS!

 

Let’s dive into what’s included in your inspection report and your HomeBinder.com account.

WELCOME

We know you have a lot of inspection companies to choose from and we’re grateful you chose us! The first page of your inspection binder explains what you’re about to learn about your potential home, and our thanks for choosing The Home Inspectors!

INSPECTION REPORTS

Our inspection report is compiled with you in mind. The report is easy to understand, simple to digest, and includes reference images of your actual home. It’s important to note that an inspection is a snapshot of your home’s current condition. Our inspectors, as wonderful as they are, can’t see into the future. They will use their expertise to lead you to a wise decision based on what they know about your current home.

  • SUMMARY |  The Inspection reports start with a summary of your home. We highlight the most important notes we’ve taken about your home and lay out a simple summary so all the information is present upfront. We don’t want you to dig for information, that’s why you hired us!
  • REPORT |  As you dive into the report you will recognize the different sections of your home and notes from The Home Inspectors about anything we believe you need to know. In many areas we may recommend you get an expert in that particular field to take a second look at your home. This may pertain to your AC unit, Electricity, etc.

 

INSPECTION AGREEMENT

The Inspection Agreement section reviews the scope of your inspection as well as general exclusions from your inspection. These exclusions look like moving personal property, destructive measures, etc.
