My Inspection normally requires two and one half (2.5) to three and one half (3.5) hours to complete. I will take 300 to 500 digital pictures of which I will select 20 to 30 to include in the report, depending on my findings.
Following completion of the onsite inspection a computer generated report compiled providing results of the inspection. The report is normally available within 24 hours for viewing and downloading from my website using provided username and password. You will be informed by email that the report is available, the email will include your username, password and instructions.
When you have reviewed the report if you should have any questions please call me. I will be happy to discuss your questions and explain my findings.
