How to read this report:
The defects within the report are organized into three categories. They are Minor Concern (in blue), Moderate Concern (in orange), and Major Concern (in red). The category that each defect is in does not determine the importance of the recommended repair. All defects noted on this report should be addressed. Health and safety concerns will be in the Moderate Concern or Major Concern, depending on how the perceived danger but these should be addressed ASAP. All repairs should be performed by licensed and/or qualified contractors in order to ensure the repairs are done safely and properly.
Minor Concern: Items or components of the home that are defective and, in the opinion of the inspector, may be considered general maintenance or are typical for the age of the home. Any recommended improvements to the home may also be in this category.
Moderate Concern: Items or components that were found to be defective and, if not addressed, these could lead to further problems. These defects are not considered to be routine maintenance. This category may also contain safety hazards or concerns.
Major Concern: Items or components that were defective and may require major/costly repairs. This category may also contain serious safety hazards or concerns that are in need of immediate attention.
These categories are based on the inspectors professional judgement and are based on the conditions at the time of the inspection. This categorization should not be construed as to mean that items designated as a Minor Concern or Moderate Concern do not need need repaired or addressed. The recommendation in each comment is more important than the category in which the defect was placed in.
Photographs: Several photos and videos are in your inspection report. These photos are for informational purposes and may not include every instance or occurrence of a defect. For example, if the report has three photos of hail damage on the roof, this does not mean that there is only hail damage in those areas.
