RJD Home & Property Inspections reports use the state of the art report writing software 3D Inspections. Our reports are computer generated with pictures and illustrations. Most Home Inspectors use pre made reports with hand written notes and check off marks. RJD feels that this type of report writing (hand written notes) is unprofessional. These reports LOOK like notes! It only saves the Inspector office time. The 3D Inspection System is recognized by Inspectors worldwide as the most powerful and flexible reporting software available. We also add photos, home illustrations, and flagit notes of areas of concern of the property you are considering to purchase. Please view a sample of our reports!

Tips From R.J.D.
Cracks in poured concrete or concrete block, Stone, or Brick foundation walls can result from shrinkage, differential settlement, lateral pressure on the wall by the soil, or poor workmanship. It is not uncommon to find short cracks in the foundation walls. Cement block, Brick, and Stone foundations have a greater chance of water seepage then poured concrete foundations due to the numerous joints. We recommend all cracks be sealed as a precautionary measure against water and insect penetration. Since it is not possible to determine from a single visual inspection whether the cracks differential settlement is active or dormant, the wall should be checked for incremental movement over a period of time, usually several months or years.
