Customized reports: With HomeGauge, home inspectors scan use the standard built-in report templates or create custom templates as per their requirements. They can choose different formats and styles of reports (grid, checklist, and narrative), add new section items, add or create a cover page, and add or edit auto-comments. Users can also upload videos to the inspection reports or attach images, documents, PDFs, MS docs, and HTML files. Videos can be used to show defects or other issues with the property to the client. Users can also merge multiple reports by using a desktop or a mobile device.
