Understanding Your Inspection Report

The first step after receiving your home inspection report is to thoroughly review it. Our detailed reports at Checklist AZ include not only a list of findings but also photographs and recommendations for repairs. It’s important to understand the severity and implications of each issue found during the inspection.

Identifying Safety Hazards

  • Electrical issues such as outdated wiring
  • Structural problems that could lead to collapse
  • Gas leaks or carbon monoxide risks

Assessing Major vs. Minor Repairs

  • Major: Foundation cracks, roof replacement
  • Minor: Cosmetic issues, such as peeling paint

Creating a Plan of Action

Once you’ve reviewed your inspection report, the next step is to create a plan of action. This involves prioritizing repairs based on their urgency and impact on your home’s safety and value.

Prioritizing Repairs

  • Address safety hazards immediately.
  • Plan for major repairs by consulting with professionals to get estimates.
  • Schedule minor repairs that you can do yourself or that are less urgent.

Remember, addressing these issues promptly can prevent them from becoming more serious and costly in the future.

Finding the Right Professionals

For major repairs, it’s crucial to find the right professionals to ensure the work is done correctly and safely. Checklist AZ can recommend trusted contractors in the Phoenix area who have a proven track record of quality work.
