Your report describes each of the major systems of the home, including, roof, exterior, structure, electrical, (HVAC) heating and cooling, plumbing, interior, insulation and ventilation.
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.
The summary is often the most important part of the report for people making their purchase decision. Once you've moved into your home, you'll likely find more detail is required, and that's when the body of the report becomes most useful.
