Discover Ways to Save with a Full Home Performance Report

When you schedule a home visit with Bradley Mechanical, you receive a detailed report on the state of your home or building. Homes and business owners can benefit significantly from a full detailed analysis of their building conditions. With over 50 years of experience and working closely with our local community, you can trust us to provide excellent service and complete transparency in our home performance reports.

What to Expect in Your Home Performance Report

At Bradley Mechanical, our detailed reports are created for each client based on findings uncovered at the site visit. You can expect most visits to take about an hour and a half. It is important that homeowners are present during the site visit, as we may need to ask questions and gain access to locked areas. After all, you know your home best. We will also perform a brief client interview to establish the main pain points and why a home performance issues report has been requested.

Our technicians have been trained to ask all the right questions to effectively document the history behind the issues we see. This will also help us determine building age, type, bedrooms and square footage. After the site visit, our technicians will spend an hour constructing the detailed report with the findings and recommendations.
