Home Inspectors Report List

This is a list of what Home Inspector Bob Elliott inspects for you during the inspection.

This list assumes access to those areas and may depend on the type of property being inspected .You will find some sections may just have material comments while others will include photos of what was looked at.

Some pictures included may be for maintenance item tips such as operation of ventless fireplaces or locations of filters for a furnace for instance.
