AmeriSpec inspection reports highlight details, include photos
As the leader in the field of home inspections, AmeriSpec has developed its software to allow customized inspection reports for any home. We can inspect a single-family ranch style home approximately 1,500 square feet; a multi-family two-story approximately 3,500 square feet; or a single-family, three-story home approximately 14,000 square feet using the same software, with each report customized to those specific needs.
AmeriSpec Omaha and Lincoln inspection reports have detailed room-by-room sections which cover the following areas: floors, walls, ceilings, doors, windows and electrical.
As members of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), we go above and beyond the industry standards, which at times can be vague and/or minimal. Each inspection report is 23-31 pages long, depending on the size of the home. Included in this report is a Summary Report which will contain any fire, health, safety and/or major expense items that were noted in the home.
The inspection report covers the following areas:
- General conditions: Weather, style of home, occupancy information.
- Exterior: Concrete, siding, windows, electrical, grade, foundation).
- Front porch.
- Roof: Type/condition of materials and viewed from on top of the roof when possible.
- Attic: Type/amount of insulation, ventilation issues and/or moisture intrusion or damage.
- Laundry area: Utility connections and conditions.
- Basement: Foundation or structural issues).
- Heating and air conditioning: Gas/carbon monoxide tests, heat exchange check, air flow through supply vents, temperature check on the air conditioner when weather conditions permit.
- Plumbing: Check supply and waste lines for leaks, water heater condition with gas and carbon monoxide tests.
- Electrical: Check main service lines, entrance, and panel connections.
- Fireplace: Damper, fire box, and flue).
- Kitchen: All appliances are tested and operated with the exception of ice machines and refrigerators.
- Bathrooms: All sinks, tubs, showers and toilets are operated and checked for leaks.
- All interior rooms.
At the end of each inspection, the inspector will review the findings in the report with the client, including 50-100 photos of areas inspected. The inspector will walk the client through home showing the Summary Report issues, if any, and all utility disconnects for each appliance.
In addition to the printout of the report, electronic copies of the report and photos will be uploaded to the client’s online digital binder.
This “digital filing cabinet” also will be loaded with other related documents, such as the termite inspection results and radon testing.
Photos from the inspection will be added to the Gallery portion of the account. Maintenance reminders will also be added so customers will be able to protect the appliances in their new homes.
Clients can also store contractor information, organize home projects, start a home inventory and upload receipts for expenses on major home improvement projects.
If homeowners add the serial numbers of their appliances to the Appliances section, they will be automatically enrolled in HomeBinder’s Recall Check program. This will send email alerts to the homeowner if a recall notice is issued for any of the appliances.
All clients are encouraged to contact the individual inspector if they have questions after the inspection.
