Scheduling a home inspection is a necessary part of the home buying process. Inspections reveal any underlying problems and architectural mistakes in the home. Finding these problems before the closing date can save the home-buyer lots of money and a great deal of headaches. In order to avoid any frustrating issues, buyers should hire competent home inspectors, such as Sacramento Inspections, who will examine the entire home while paying close attention to key areas.
Roofs deserve the most attention because they provide the greatest amount of protection. Aging and leaking roofs can lead to other problems such as rotting wood, sheetrock failure, and electrical problems. Sacramento Inspections will check the roof for holes, tears, and soft spots. They will also analyze the integrity of the roof by evaluating its age and layer arrangement. By using thermal imaging infrared survey technology, Sacramento Inspections can also scan the home to see if an excessive amount of moisture, mold, or mildew is present. Moisture can come from roof leaks and non-insulated windows or doors. Moisture can also exist in poorly ventilated areas where water runs frequently. Too much moisture can create mold and mildew problems, which can damage walls and contaminate the air. Thorough moisture inspections can prevent these problems before they become too overwhelming and expensive to fix.
Gas leak testing and termite (WDO) inspections are important aspects of home evaluations as well. Gas fired appliances are always susceptible to carbon monoxide leaks and should undergo full examinations. It is also extremely necessary to check the stability of post-meter natural gas lines. Sacramento Inspections will always perform gas leak tests and termite inspections because these are hidden problems that can go undetected for years. Detecting these problems will prevent a homeowner and their family members from living with incredible risks. Sacramento Inspections cares about the safety of the home-buyer just as much as they care about the condition of the home. They are experienced inspectors that understand the significance of examining a home from top to bottom.
