After your family, your home is your greatest investment. Maintaining your home’s structure as well as its systems is vital to both ensure your family’s safety and the value of your property. Everyone knows that proper maintenance is imperative to ensure that your home remains a safe place to live. The issue is, most homeowners are not aware of how often their systems require maintenance, or even replacement. This is especially true if they are considering structural changes.
For example, will the home’s current electrical system, structure, heating and cooling systems be able to support an extension? A second story or dormer? An additional bathroom? A carport? The best way to make certain, before you apply for a loan or engage a contractor, even invest in a vacation when you are unaware of a major household expense that may be looming, is by having a home inspection, at least every couple of years.
A Little Knowledge Can Save $$$$$
A professional home inspector can provide peace of mind. We’ll inspect your roof, exterior, the structure itself, your electrical system, plumbing, heating and cooling, even the insulation as well as inspect the interior for signs of wear and maintenance issues. This way, you can plan ahead. If you know, for instance, that your roof will require replacement within five years, you can begin to put money aside for that major expense. Also a home inspection can confirm if your dream of having a second story addition will have to be toned down to a dormer, instead.
There are many more benefits to having a routine home inspection. They are well worth the modest expense for the value and knowledge you’ll reap! Give us a call today to make an appointment.
