Russell Kowalik, PE, will evaluate the house structure during a thorough home inspection covering all aspects of the house.
The Three Rivers home inspection process is unique.
Most home inspectors check individual components (such as a furnace or shingles) so that a report of predetermined format can be filled out. The inspection process is guided by the necessity to “fill in the blanks” in that report format.
The Three Rivers home inspection process is not guided by the need to fill in the blanks.
The individual components are evaluated in relation to systems in which they play a role, and the individual systems are evaluated in terms of the global house environment.
Of course, the Three Rivers evaluation covers all aspects of the home, including:
Our Unique Home Inspection Process – Starts and Ends with the Report
How can Three Rivers conduct inspections with a radically different and more effective/productive perspective?
The answer lies in our unique reporting method.
What are the problems with traditional home inspection reporting?
Traditional reporting methods limit the complexity of issues that can be reported in a home inspection report. Issues that cannot be reported might as well not have been identified during the inspection process.
What is the point of uncovering complex issues if these issues cannot be accommodated by the reporting methods?
The Three Rivers reporting method describes the results of the global-perspective evaluation of the home. The report is written after the inspection process is complete to describe the true overall condition of the house.
The full-house assessment nature of the Three Rivers inspection requires the inspector to fully concentrate on the inspection process.
The client is invited on-site to receive the results of the inspection after the inspection has been completed, at an agreed-upon time. An unlimited amount of time is available for a walk-through of the house and for a review of the inspection results/conclusions. Conducting a review of the results and a tour of the house systems after the inspection has been completed works better for the client than the alternative. In the alternative method, inspection information is provided as it is developed, sometimes to be contradicted later as new perspectives develop.
The Three Rivers Home Inspection Report is delivered to the client, and to others, as directed, on an agreed-to schedule (usually within one to two days).
The Three Rivers process of conducting the inspection, reviewing the results with the client, and then writing a report is certainly not the quickest method available. However, Three Rivers believes that this method produces the best possible result for the client.
