Thank you for choosing Integrity Inspection Services to conduct your Home Inspection. We understand that the function of this Report is to assist you in understanding the condition of the home including fire, health and safety issues as well as any potential unforeseen major out-of-pocket expenses.

WA State Standard of Practice state:

"The purpose of a home inspection is to assess the condition of the residence at the time of the inspection using visual observations, simple tools and normal homeowner operational controls; and to report deficiencies of specific systems and components. Inspectors must perform all inspections in compliance with the SOP set forth by the Washington state department of licensing."

This report contains a review of components in the following basic categories: site, exterior, roofing, structure, insulation/ventilation, electrical, HVAC, plumbing and interior. Additional categories may or may not be included depending on the particular home. This Report is designed to be easy to read and comprehend, however it is important to read the entire Report to obtain a full understanding of the scope, limitations and exclusions of the Inspection. In addition to the descriptive items of the Report there are comments which are meant to help you further understand certain conditions observed. Comments in BLUE are primarily informational do not reflect any kind of defect. Comments in ORANGE are typically defects but are not necessarily urgent or safety related. RED comments are to be considered urgent and/or safety related and should be addressed as soon as possible. It is always recommended that you call a licensed and qualified professional when contracting repairs on your home. 

*A home inspection is not to be considered technically exhaustive nor does it identify concealed conditions or latent defects. A home inspection should be considered a "snap-shot" of the home from one single point in time. As all homes age and are in a continual state of deterioration, the homeowner must preform regular inspection and maintenance of their home to maintain and repair systems and components as they age, or contract qualified professionals to preform such regular inspection and maintenance as needed.   

**This Inspection Report reflects a contracted agreement between Integrity Inspection Services LLC and the Client who's name appears on the Report. Any use of this Inspection Report by parties not reflected in the original agreement is made at that users own risk and Integrity Inspection Services LLC has no obligation or contractual agreement with that party. Integrity Inspection Services LLC retains the rights to all information found in this Report. 

If you have any questions with your Home Inspection Report, please do not hesitate to call or email.
