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.
Some form of basement dampness exists in most homes in our New England area. It can range from slight efflorescence to high water rust lines on lally columns. Often, however, in houses which are being offered for sale, the visible signs on the interior of a basement which would indicate a past or present water and or moisture problem are concealed. For example, an area may be painted over, or basement storage may be piled against a wall where a problem has occurred or if it has been dry for a period before the Inspection, signs of past water penetration may not be visible. Our experience shows that substantial dampness can be eliminated with proper diversion of roof and ground water. A damaged gutter or leader discharging into a low area at the foundation will be a major source of dampness in the basement. We note dampness in our reports, and attempt to determine its source and recommend a solutions.
