How is a Home Inspection Performed?
While inspecting the prospective property, Durham Inspection Service compiles the on-site data into a hand held laptop computer, which contains a program that allows you a report that is the easiest report in the industry for you to read and interpret. At the conclusion of the inspection, you will be walked through the property by the inspector showing you exactly what is present in the property and receive a copy the same evening (as opposed to a less descriptive narrative completed off-site).
What is the difference between a narrative and an itemized list with a written commentary?
A narrative is a typical "boiler plate" with a written explanation completed after the home inspection has been performed. It is usually a group of paragraphs, "plugged in" and written off-site. Frequently, it takes between 1-2 days to receive.
An itemized detailed list report is the Inspector's actual findings of each area in detail, completed on-site, during an inspection. The report also includes photo's and specific written comments by the Inspector about the property.
