Property Maintenance Inspection
Ironically, as large of an investment as a house is, it is maintained far less frequently than the family car though your house often costs ten to twenty times as much as your family car. But unlike what is provided for the family car, a home rarely ever receives a “check-up”. Instead, problems that occur in a home are typically only addressed after something breaks or after damage to its structure and systems has become so severe that you are forced to make repairs. Most homeowners give very little consideration to the fact that, if found early on, home-related problems can be addressed or repaired before those problems become so large that the expense of fixing them cause a financial strain. But how do you know something is wrong with your home to begin with? The only way you will be able to identify and prevent existing or potential problems with your home is to give it an inspection. Based on various facts such as weathering and local weather patterns, normal wear and tear, and the planned obsolescence of construction materials and mechanical systems, we recommend that you schedule a home inspected regularly during the lifetime of residency in your home. And just as with a buyer-seller home inspection, we will also provide you with a detailed report about the damage we find to the systems and structure in your home.
What We Inspect, and What You Should Expect
Much like a buyer-seller home inspection, a Home maintenance Inspection is a visual examination of your home’s systems, mechanicals and structure. We examine everything from roof to basement to assure that the items inspected are in proper working order. if we should discover any defects or damage (within the scope of our inspection policy), it will be noted in our thorough Home Inspection Report. Our report will review the condition of the home’s heating system, central air conditioning system (temperature permitting), interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement and visible structure. Many inspectors will also offer additional services not included in a typical home inspection, such as mold, radon, and water testing. Keep in mind that a Home Maintenance Inspection does not prevent further damage to your property, but it can help you to identify and correct existing damage that you may not know about. Our Home Maintenance Inspections are also not appraisal inspection and cannot help you to determine the value of your property, although it can help you to maintain its value. Finally, a Home Maintenance Inspection is not a code inspection and does not provide you with a pass or fail score. You simply cannot fail a home Maintenance Inspection.
