We’ve updated our Standard Home Inspection image, which you can download from our Gallery for free use.
Hi Chris, you created a new logo for me but I have yet to see it shown here in the forum.
Peter, go to your Control Panel of this forum and add it to your signature.
Footer? lol. It’s a footing. Footings are underground & I don’t dig to “check” them.
As far as roofing underlayment and A-coils as well…not many people “check” those.
But we do check stairs.
yes, good one
As Josh and Marcel have noted there are many inaccuracies on this "updated’ image.
And what’s with the date?
Standard Home Inspection
Uploaded December 31, 1969
The illustration kind of alludes to the ability to “see” inside walls and floor structures. Just sayin’.
Please re update
We’ve made some changes to the image, thank you all for your suggestions.
Better, thank you!
There still quite a few that should be changed/added, to make it more user friendly. After all, it’ll be for client’s eyes, not ours. Here’s a few suggested changes (that coincide with SOP):
- Re-add chimney (just chimney only, don’t say flue or anything else)
- Add roof penetrations - point to plumbing vent pipe
- Add soffit/fascia, instead of just fascia
- Add gutters/downspouts
- Add stairs, handrails, guardrails, etc.
- Remove footing
- Remove stem wall and replace with foundation - most buyer’s aren’t going to know what a stem wall is
Maybe also replace shingles with roof
Remove roof & attic and just say attic
Remove gable end? Doesn’t make sense with this graphic.
Maybe rafters/trusses also
That’s it for now
Why not just use the SOP book for all items that need to be checked as a guideline for items that are visible in this graphic and be done with it.
