Detailed Reports

Every inspection I do includes a detailed report that outlines any safety hazards, areas in need of repair, missing components, damaged areas, and items not meeting or exceeding code.  The report includes photos and extensive documentation that comes as a result of my experience and attention to detail.  Below are examples taken from real reports.
