INSPECTEXPRESS™ is a professional grade home inspection software program that is integrated with Microsoft Word for the best in report presentation. Our templates create easy to read inspection reports that can include comments from the editable library, unlimited photos and summary comments in a choice of narrative styles. A well designed report cover, table of contents, headers and footers can be automatically included according to personalized settings to enhance the report without any additional effort.
Reports can be created by following our wizards through the systems defined by your choice of standards, or by using your own template and inserting comments from the library. Photos are automatically formatted according to the home inspector's preferences as they are added to the report and can be inserted in-line with the comments, or on a separate page with cross-references. If a summary style is selected, the summary can either include a list of all deficiencies or observations specifically selected by the home inspector during the reporting process. The summary can be printed as an addendum to the full report or as a separate document.
All lists of components descriptions and observations can be edited with a single click during the reporting process, making it simple for the inspector to customize the software during day to day use. Start with the thousands of included component descriptions and boilerplate comments and add, edit or remove unnecessary entries until the libraries are fully personalized to your preferences and locale.
INSPECTEXPRESS™ can be used to create reports on site for immediate delivery or can be used back at the inspector's office to create the report at their convenience.
The software is designed to be easy for even a novice computer user to use right from the start, but also has many features to allow an inspector to customize both the program and report.
The Inspection Wizard
The intuitive approach to creating a home inspection report uses a series of forms. The wizard helps guide you through your inspection process.
Check off what sections and documents to include in the report such as:
- Report Cover
- Table of Contents
- Purpose and Scope
- Standards of Practice
- Form Sections (roof, exterior etc.)
- Your Custom Documents
Add the home details and client information then proceed through each selected form section.
Add component descriptions by selecting from a drop-down box.
Add observations by selecting the related check box. The narrative comment that matches the selection appears in the box at the bottom of the form and can be easily edited.
Click the 'Write' button to transfer the selected information to the document.
Adding Images to Report
Adding images is so easy! Images can be added when editing and inserting observations from the sections forms or from the main menu after the report has been written. There are several methods and styles for inserting images and users can control presets for these methods.
- Preset image settings make resizing and borders a snap.
- Insert an image and wrap the observation around the image, insert a cross-reference photo template, or have your photos inline and lined up side by side below your observations.
- Insert a report cover image, positioned and formatted to your settings every time.
- Annotate and highlight your images with text, arrows, circles and squares. Preset the colors and sizes and more...
Customizing the Interface
Forms can be resized to fit your screen resolution and the fonts to be displayed on the forms can also be changed. The labels, frames and tab captions can be edited allowing you to make changes to match your reporting style. The form interface (dropdown lists, observation check boxes, captions and comment etc.) can be modified on the fly while in use by right clicking the fields. Setup defaults for the most common types of components in your area. Each time you use the software it gets faster and faster!

For each list you can:
- Add, remove or re-order entries or set as default.
- Edit the sub headings and titles.
- Add a footnote with options.
Each section contains up to ten lists on five tabs with a large number of check boxes you can edit for your saved observations lists. Each comment can have a short name for each retrieval That means no reading of the whole comment needed when searching for comments.
You can customize these lists and move items from one list to another and even set the number of comments in each list. By labeling and organizing your comments into groups from each section you can make retrieval of comments easy and fast
Just "Right Click" or "Double Click" on the check box to:
- Edit the caption that appears on the comment.
- Edit the default comment for future use.
- Add images or diagrams to the default comment for future use.
