Thank you for choosing Inspectrum for your home inspection!  If you have any questions please call your inspector at 252-258-6315 or email inspectrumhome@gmail.com


SCOPE OF THE INSPECTION:
Inspectrum endeavors to perform all inspections in substantial compliance with the Standards of Practice of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). As such, we inspect the readily accessible, visually observable, installed systems and components of a home as designated in the InterNACHI Standards of Practice. When systems or components designated in the InterNACHI Standards of Practice are present but are not inspected, the reason(s) the item was not inspected is identified within the “Limitations” tab of this report. This report contains observations of those systems and components that, in the professional judgement of the inspector, are not functioning properly, significantly deficient, unsafe, or are near the end of their service lives. If the cause for the deficiency is not readily apparent, the suspected cause or reason why the system or component is at or near end of expected service life is reported, and recommendations for correction or monitoring are made as appropriate.

USE OF PHOTOS:
Your report includes many photographs. Some pictures are informational and of a general view, to help you understand where the inspector has been, what was looked at and the condition of the item or area at the time of the inspection. Some of the pictures may be of problem areas, these are to help you better understand what is documented in this report and to help you see areas or items that you normally would not see. Not all problem areas or conditions will be supported with photos.

CATEGORIES:
This report divides notable items into two categories: Maintenance Items (in blue) and Recommendations (in orange).

MAINTENANCE ITEMS: These are items that are either typically taken care of by the homeowner or are items not in need of immediate action but should be monitored for possible future action.  

RECOMMENDATIONS: Include comments of a deficiency, a latent defect or a suggested improvement of a system which may have appeared functional at the time of inspection, however some benefit may be achieved by adhering to the recommendation.  This also includes some components of the house that may not be functioning at the time of inspection but do not pose an immediate safety concern.  This category may also denote a significantly deficient component or a condition which will require a relatively short term correction. These will typically fall into one of the following three categories: Major defects (an example of this would be a structural failure), things that may lead to major defects (such as a small roof-flashing leak) or potential safety hazards.

Anything in these categories should be addressed. Often, a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property.

This categorization is the opinion of the inspector and is based on what was observed at the time of inspection. It is not intended to imply that items documented in any one category are not in need of correction. Maintenance items or latent defects left unrepaired can soon become significant defects. It should be considered very likely there will be other issues you personally may consider deficient. There may also be defects that you feel belong in a different category and you should feel free to consider the importance you believe they hold and act accordingly.

Please review the report in its entirety. It is ultimately up to your discretion to interpret its findings and to act accordingly. This report does not offer an opinion as to whom among the parties to this transaction should take responsibility for addressing any of these concerns. As with all aspects of your transaction, you should consult with your Realtor® for further advice regarding the contents of this report. Any repairs should be performed by the applicable licensed and bonded tradesman or qualified professional who will provide copies of all receipts, warranties and applicable permits for any repairs that are carried out.
