A home inspection is not a pass or fail type of inspection. It is only a visual evaluation of the conditions, the systems and accessible components of the home designed to identify areas of concern within specific systems or components defined by the Florida State Standards of Practice, that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector at the exact date and time of inspection. Conditions can and will change after the inspection over time. Future conditions or component failure cannot be foreseen or reported on. Components that are not readily accessible cannot be inspected. Issues that are considered as cosmetic are not addressed in this report. (Holes, stains, scratches, missing trim, paint and finish flaws). It is not the intent of this report to make the house new again. Any and all recommendations for repair, replacement, evaluation, and maintenance issues found, should be evaluated by the appropriate trades contractors within the clients inspection contingency window or prior to closing, which is contract applicable in order to obtain proper dollar amount estimates on the cost of said repairs and also because these evaluations could uncover more potential issues than able to be noted from a purely visual inspection of the property. This inspection will not reveal every concern or issue that exists, but only those material defects that were observable on the day of the inspection. This inspection is intended to assist in evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling only. This inspection is not a prediction of future conditions, and conditions with the property are subject to change the moment we leave the premises.
The following numbered and attached pages are your home inspection report. This information was performed in accordance with the current Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics of InterNACHI.
Final Walk Thru:
A final walk thru may be performed shortly before closing to confirm to acceptable conditions of the home. This should include retesting all of the appliances and fixtures. If the home was occupied at the time of the inspection, many areas of the home were limited and could not be seen. We recommend to complete a walk thru after the occupant or seller has removed these items to pay attention to the areas that were concealed.
Bluebird Home Inspections LLC recommends that the qualified person making repairs should inspect the property further in order to discover and repair any related problems that were not observed or reported at the time of the inspection.
We may bring to your attention certain recommendations to upgrade from the original functioning features that may be considered to upgrade your home. Some of these upgrades may not have been require when the home was built. They do not constitute a deficiency in the property. Recommend upgrades to the home should be performed by a qualified person or company in accordance with the industry standards, government requirements pertaining to permits, codes, and regulations.

We report on fire, life, and safety issues. We also do not report on ADA compliance. This too has tiered guidelines and codes which fall outside the scope of our inspection.
