Relative Elevation Survey -  This is the first step in identifying dis-elevations in the structure.  Foundation Inspectors uses a Zip Level which measures the differential movement from the base point (0) to other areas in the structure.    

see sample diagram
 

Contours Diagram - Provides you with a visual that can clearly demonstrate movement in the structure.   A contour line is a line that connects points of equal elevation.  Every point on a contour line has the same elevation with respect to a fixed base point.  A contour line can also define a boundary between flat surface adjacent areas that are higher or lower.

Photo File - Your report will reference photos and a link will be provided for you to view, save and print photos taken during your inspection.
