Inspection Overview

Thank You for choosing Integri-Spec Home Inspections to perform your complete home inspection. The goal of this inspection and report is to put you in a better position to make an informed real estate decision. This report is a general guide and provides you with some objection information to help you make your own evaluation of the overall condition of the home and is not intended to reflect the value of the property, or to make any representation as to the advisability of purchase. Not all improvements, defects or hazards will be identified during this inspection. Unexpected repairs should still be anticipated.This inspection is not a guarantee or warranty of any kind. Integri-Spec endeavors to perform all inspections in substantial compliance with InterNACHI s Standards of Practice. Please refer to the pre-inspection contract for a full explanation of the scope of the inspection. This Home Inspection 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 useful 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 useful service life is reported, and recommendations for correction or monitoring are made as appropriate.This report is effectively a snapshot of the house recording the conditions on a given date and time. Home inspectors cannot predict future behavior, and as such, we cannot be responsible for things that occur after the inspection. If conditions change, we are available to revisit the property for an additional charge and update our report.Any oral statements made by the Inspector pertaining to Recommended Upgrades or any inclusion in the Inspection Report of information regarding Recommended Upgrades shall be deemed to be informational only and supplied as a courtesy to you and shall not be deemed to be an amendment to or waiver of any exclusions included in the "Home Inspection Agreement and Standards of Practice.
