When most people think of a home inspection, they think of someone coming in to check for specific structural damage or particular pests. However, there are many other aspects to a home inspection that are just as important, if not more so.
This is one of the most common issues that we see during home inspections. Often times, roofs will have missing or damaged shingles, leaks, or other problems that can lead to major damage if left unaddressed.
Another very common issue during home inspections is electrical problems. These can range from outdated wiring to overloaded circuits and everything in between. Electrical issues can be extremely dangerous and should always be addressed as soon as possible.
Plumbing problems are also very common during home inspections and can range from minor leaks to major sewer line issues. Like with electrical issues, plumbing problems can be extremely dangerous and should always be addressed immediately.
Issues with heating and cooling systems are also quite common during home inspections. Often times, these systems will need to be serviced or replaced altogether due to age or wear and tear.
Last but certainly not least, pest infestations are another very common issue during home inspections . Termites , ants , rodents , and other pests can cause a great deal of damage to a home if left unchecked . Not only that , but some pests can also pose a serious health risk to humans .
