Fully Digital Narrative Report

Beach To Bayou report software is fully digital and easy to interact with. We provide our clients with two inspection reports; a Detailed and a Summary report.

The Inspection Detail report provides a comprehensive review of our inspection findings in a narrative & thorough format. The Inspection Summary report provides a list of only areas of concern and items that require further attention. This Summary report is easy to share with the seller or builder for a quick synopsis of repairs needed. These reports are one of the many innovative efforts that has set Beach To Bayou apart from the competition. See sample reports »

At Beach To Bayou, we enlist infrared camera technology as well as moisture meters everyday, just like any other tool in our tool belt: We use an infrared camera when it makes sense, just like a flashlight or screwdriver…we don’t charge extra for using any tool.
