Your Inspection Report
Your Inspection report from Hawley Home Inspections LLC will be both easy to read and give in-depth information about your new home. The inspection report will have three sections. The first section will be general information about the property. The Summary page(s) is the second section. And this is a summary of items your inspectors thought was essential and will need your attention. The third section is a room-by-room system by system detailed breakdown of the home’s condition during the inspection.
When you receive the inspection report, if you have any questions, please call our office at 314-247-0040 or 618-593-9631. Our office staff can answer most questions. However, if they cannot help you, one of our field supervisors will contact you.

Items not Operating
“Items not operating” will list any item tested that was not operating at the time of the inspection. The reason may be individual appliances or systems; in this case, the water was turned off during the inspection and later turned on, requiring a second trip. An additional charge will be applied if the inspector has to return at a later date.
Items Not Inspected Due to the Following
“Improvement/Maintenance Items” are usually defects that should be repaired or replaced by do not need immediate attention. Often these will be maintenance items that will re-occur regularly. The deficiencies noted may also have been accepted practice when the home was built. But changes to National Standards suggest they should be upgraded or changed.
Items to Monitor
Deferred Cost Items (items that may reach the end of their average life in the next five years)
Just for Your Information
Our home inspection is not a “Code Inspection,” and we do not do code inspections. We serve sixteen counties and over three hundred and fifty cities and towns in Illinois and Missouri. The national codes are updated every three years, but each local municipality rarely adopts the latest code cycle. So there is no way to keep track of what code cycle anyone city or town is using. Because of this, we conduct our inspections based on National Standards. Our Approach is simple “if it can hurt you in a home built in 2021, it will hurt you in a home built in 1821”.
