Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned property investor, our comprehensive reports and expert insights will help you make informed decisions about your investment.
Important Things to Remember About Home Inspections:
- Roofing Issues: We pay special attention to the seal around vent stacks and flashing, as compromised seals can lead to moisture damage and structural issues over time.
- Moisture Damage: Failing to seal joints in siding and trim can cause significant structural damage that is difficult to detect until it becomes severe. Proper weatherproofing and maintenance are essential.
- Electrical Issues & Faulty Wiring: Electrical problems often result from poor execution, improper components, or DIY projects that require professional attention. Identifying and addressing electrical issues is vital for safety.
