I create my reports using the latest in report writing software.   My custom, colorful easy to read reports are digital and printable.   They start with a prioritized summary so you have a well-organized and easily referenced ‘punch list” of items to address.   I use a lot of pictures and diagrams to provide a clear explanation of any issues.   When viewed on a computer, the .pdf report opens with Adobe Reader and is interactive with helpful links and tab to tab navigation similar to that of a website.
