Plumbing Home Inspections
Detailed plumbing home inspections are routinely performed. Plumbing systems have many moving parts and are dependent on very tiny gaskets to perform and seal properly. Other parts of the plumbing system stay rock solid for many years and need worrying about.
Homeowners can have their systems checked for preventive maintenance. Common problems that can occur range from simple toilet flappers and dripping faucets to major concerns with underground piping, water heaters, water valve failure. Underground drains can be video inspected to look for cracks, breaks, or sagging/ bellied lines. Water heaters are often hidden away in an attic and the corroded unit is not noticed until the water heater bursts and the emergency pan is rusted and leaks onto the ceiling. Water valve failure is something no one notices isn’t working until you need it the most in an emergency water leak.
Home inspections are most common for people looking to purchase a home. Unfortunately, many people when getting ready to sell a home, may leave it in neglect, or much worse, try to get the cheapest quick cover ups so no one may notice underlying issues. These can be sometimes uncovered with general home inspections, but often general home inspectors are not up to date on code and safety requirements of each individual trade. For a very detailed home inspection, hiring people who are licensed in their respective trades is important. We can perform a detailed analysis of the home with accurate prices for repairs. Video inspections of the main plumbing drains are highly recommended, but often overlooked.
