Checklists and Other Assessment Tools

Assessment Tools

There are a wide variety of home assessment guidance documents, tools and checklists that serve different purposes. Some are at a very detailed level suitable for a home inspector, some are geared toward the health practicioners addressing specific concerns such as asthma triggers, and other are more general for a homeowner. We have compiled several types here that can be used or modified to suit your needs.
