A house inspection is an important step in buying or selling a home. It is a thorough evaluation of the condition of a house conducted by a certified professional home inspector. During a house inspection, the inspector will look at the structure, systems, and components of the house to identify any potential safety or maintenance issues.
The first step of a house inspection is a visual inspection. The inspector will examine the interior and exterior of the home, looking for signs of wear and tear, structural damage, and any potential safety hazards. The inspector will also check for smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and will ensure that all windows and doors are properly secured.
The second step of a house inspection involves a more in-depth evaluation of the home’s systems and components. This includes checking the electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling systems, roof, foundation, and insulation. The inspector will also check for any signs of water damage, mold, or pests.
The third step of a house inspection involves testing the home’s systems and components. This includes testing the electrical, plumbing, heating, and cooling systems, and appliances. The inspector will also use specialized tools to check for radon gas and other potential safety hazards.
Once the house inspection is complete, the inspector will provide a written report of their findings. This report will include details of any potential safety or maintenance issues that were discovered. The buyer or seller can then use the report to make an informed decision about the house
Many buyers purchase a new construction home because they wish to avoid issues found in aging homes such as outdated electrical or foundation issues. Unfortunately, even new homes can have issues.
Homebuilders often subcontract much of the work on the build of your home to a wide range of vendors. In addition, mistakes simply happen and even though you may have a home warranty, some issues may not be apparent until sometime in the future.
If a property has health and safety issues or has a flaw that will require a costly repair, you need to know about it sooner rather than counting on a warranty to address it later.
Thermography is a safe and effective way of identifying moisture intrusion, energy loss and hot spots throughout the property.
Infrared cameras capture and process thermal information by analyzing infrared (IR) radiation emitted and produce images that show temperature deviations through colors: lighter colors (reddish color family) signify that something is hotter and darker colors (blues and purples) signify cooler areas.
Large temperature differentials within an image may indicate a problem. The inspector will interpret the image based on their training and make recommendations in the thermography report for next steps in the discovery process. Though thermography can show you potential problems, all findings should be confirmed with a specialist in the area of that particular concern.
Many homeowners don’t realize that the line connecting the home to the main sewer is their responsibility. Sewer line problems can cost anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars in repair. They can also cause sewage to back up in your home, resulting in an unpleasant mess no one wishes to deal with.
A professional sewer line inspection, called a sewer scope, uses a camera system to view the interior of the home’s sewer line, traveling out to the city connection. This inspection can uncover such issues as broken or collapsed pipes, offset or sagging sections and blocking from tree roots. Inspectors can also provide information for plumbing and sewer providers to give you an accurate estimate of the repair costs.
Our specialized assessments are typically half the cost of what a plumber would charge, giving you extra savings, as well as detailed knowledge of the state of your home’s sewer system. Whether you are buying an older home or purchasing a new home, either may have undiscovered sewer issues. Enjoy peace of mind by scheduling a sewer line inspection before purchasing a home today.
