New York Home Inspection Reports

At the end of each inspection, we will provide you with a comprehensive report that includes our findings and recommendations regarding the site condition. Our goal is to provide you with a clear understanding of any potential issues that may need to be addressed.

When it comes to site conditions, our home inspectors will observe and report on the following:

Below are sample tasks that can be completed by a home inspector.


  • The building perimeter for land grade and water drainage directly adjacent to the foundation: We understand that proper land grading and water drainage are crucial to prevent water intrusion into the foundation, which can lead to costly damage. Our inspectors will carefully assess the grading around the building to ensure that it slopes away from the foundation, and that there are no areas where water can pool or drain towards the foundation.
  • Trees and vegetation that adversely affect the residential building: Trees and other vegetation on the property can have a significant impact on the condition of a residential building. Overhanging branches can damage roofs, while tree roots can affect the foundation or plumbing system. Our inspectors will identify any trees or vegetation that could pose potential risks or hazards to the building, and report on their condition accordingly.
  • Walkways, steps, driveways, patios, and retaining walls: These areas are important for the safety and functionality of a property. Our inspectors will carefully inspect walkways, steps, driveways, patios, and retaining walls for any visible defects or safety hazards, such as cracks, uneven surfaces, or loose or damaged materials that could pose a risk to residents or visitors.
