A Home Inspection is a visual condition assessment of a home. Disclosing to you much more information than the seller could at point-of-sale. It will provide an unbiased professional opinion of the overall physical condition of the property. Similar to your doctor giving you a "physical".
Each Inspection includes a written report, the web based ASHI® "Standards of Practice" (which explain in detail what is covered), as well as the web based "Information Kit". In general, the home inspection and report will cover:
• Roof & Attic

Our original report is regarded as one of Cleveland's best. It is a combination report (checklist and narrative). It separates the "legal information" and the "maintenance information" from the body of the report. Therefore, the report is clear and focused, not cluttered with disclosures, or how-to tips. These items are part of separate documents. We can provide immediate paper reports, or same day electronic reports. We also take photographs of key issues. You are welcome to view a sample report. We are actually one of the only home inspectors that writes his own reports. Most inspectors buy reports made by other companies.
