Tried-and-True Home Inspections will check all accessible areas of the home including the structural components, exterior components, roofing system, plumbing system, electrical system, heating system, cooling system, interior components, insulation components and ventilation system, and fireplaces and solid fuel burning appliances. In your detailed report, we will describe all of the above systems and components, state what material defects are found and the significance of those findings, and provide recommendations regarding the need to repair, replace, or monitor a system or component, or obtain evaluation by a qualified professional, tradesman, or service technician.
What is a material defect?
A material defect is a condition, or functional aspect of component or system, observable during a home inspection that substantially affects the value, habitability, or safety of the dwelling. Material defects do not include decorative, stylistic, cosmetic, or aesthetic aspects of the system, structure, or component.
What does accessible area mean?
An accessible area is one that is available for visual inspection without requiring the moving of personal property, dismantling, destructive measures, or any action which will likely involve risk to persons or property.
What can I expect in my inspection report?
Your inspection report will be delivered 24-48 hours after the inspection. It will contain the details on any material defects with pictures and recommendations.
