Here at Mississippi Premier Inspections, we strive to give you all the information you need during your home inspection. In doing so, we want to make sure that you have a home inspection report that details items that need repair, replacement, maintenance, or further evaluation. On occasion, when we feel as if we’re qualified, we will add comments about things we notice in your home that exceed what is encompassed in a home inspection report along with a recommendation to bring you all the information you need about your home or potential new home. Mississippi Premier Inspections wants you to know that we see you, we hear you, and that we are an ally for you in this process.
Your Home Inspection Report
You can expect the following in your home inspection report. During your home inspection, we will take photos, and on occasion, we will record videos as we complete the inspection. We are limited on some things we can see or access during the home inspection, but we will note everything we can see and/or test. The report is broken down into the following categories:
- Major/significant defects
- Marginal defects
- Minor defects/maintenance items/DIY items.
Unfortunately, we cannot comment on what may or may not happen in the future.
What You Will Find in Your Home Inspection Report
Inside the report, there will be sections labeled like this:
- utility shutoff locations
- roof, roof structure, attic, and ventilation
- other interior areas and items
- heating and cooling
- garage, if applicable
- water, moisture, and condensation
- cracking, settlement, and movement
Each section will include defects, if any, along with recommendations and photos. If there are no noticeable defects at the time of inspection, you’ll get a note that says so.
For example, if there is an issue with your refrigerant lines, you’ll get a note that says: “Deteriorated pipe insulation was present on portions of the refrigerant lines. Replacement of any deteriorated pipe insulation is recommended to be performed by a qualified person to prevent the formation of condensation and applicable damage.” It will be followed by a recommendation and photos like the ones below:
The inspection report is detailed, and we comment on what we can see at the time. We can’t comment on what may happen in the future either. However, we want to bring you as much information as we possibly can. It’s important to us that we make this as seamless and easy for you as possible.
Come back each month for more information on what can be found in your home inspection report or what tools we use during our inspections.
