Review Your Home Inspection Report

We will send your report within 24 hours of the inspection.

Whether you are buying, selling, or maintaining your home, Fox Home Check provides professional and quality service from the moment you call us. Our certified home inspector will provide a detailed home inspection report, and walk though your home with you to explain how the various systems work. He will provide some history, based on his observations during the inspection and explain how issues may have evolved.

As we walk through the home together, we will explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that pose a safety concern or could substantially impact the value of your home, and should be addressed immediately. These critical items will be color-coded red and highlighted in the summary of your report. We will also mention the items that you will want to monitor to ensure the potential issue is stable, as well as preemptive measures you can take to help preserve your home, like sealing cracks and improving drainage. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read report, which will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that detailed inspection report, you will be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.


The roof is one of the most costly and important structures. We will examine the roof, its structure, shingles/tiles, flashing, gutters, downspouts and more.

Attic, Ventilation & Insulation

We will examine the attic to ensure it is properly ventilated, check for moisture issues, assess the level of insulation, and more.


This includes the exterior walkways and doors, siding, eaves and soffits, fascia, paint, and other such elements of the home’s exterior.

Foundations, Basements & Crawl Spaces

We will examine the foundation, crawlspaces and basements to look for signs of things like past water damage, foundation cracking or shifting, and other such potentially expensive issues.


We will visually inspect the HVAC systems including ducts, filters, furnaces and air conditioning units.


We will test the basic functionality of all installed appliances in the kitchen and throughout the home.


We will visually inspect plumbing fixtures for proper function, including tubs, sinks, hoses, showers, and water shut-off valves, and look for leaks and other such flaws.

Electrical Systems

We will visually inspect both interior and exterior electrical systems including service drops, service masts, grounding, outlets, meters, circuit breakers, and other such systems.

Doors, Windows & Interior

We will check doors and windows for proper sealing and drafts, signs of water infiltration or water damage, and more. We will also check the condition of all interior spaces.
