  Horizon Home Inspectors Sample Inspection Report


BUYERS - To understand the condition of a property they intend to purchase.

SELLERS - Prevent costly surprises down the road when a buyer hires their own inspector.

OWNERS - A great tool for general maintenance. Finding small problems now prevents bigger problems later.

NEW CONSTRUCTION - An inspection before the final walkthrough helps establish a detailed punchlist to ensure your new home is finished well and functioning properly before you move in.

1 YEAR BUILDER'S WARRANTY - Are you satisfied with construction of your new home? Home builders typically provide a warranty against construction defects for the first 12 months. The warranty inspection is often the last chance to get the full attention of the builder. Horizon Home Inspectors will coordinate with the homeowner to compile a thorough list of defects to present to the builder.
