The Report contains categorizations of Major Concerns (red), Moderate Concerns (orange), and Minor issues (blue). The colors and classifications are done for illustrative purposes and convenience. All issues should be considered and evaluated equally.
The Red category is for major concerns. This includes issues with a system or component that may have an adverse impact on the value of the property, or that poses an unreasonable risk to people or property.
The Orange category is for items that are not functional or will lead to further defects if not addressed.
The Blue category is mostly routine maintenance that is due now and that new owners should do periodically.
The categorization is not intended to determine which items may need to be addressed per the contractual requirements of the agreement of sale of the property. All items of concern to you should be addressed as you deem necessary. I recommend that you read the entire Inspection report, including the InterNACHI SoP and the limitations tabs to fully assess the findings of the inspection. Please call us for any clarifications or further questions.
