The home buying process can often be an emotionally involved one, as you diligently search for that perfect home, in the perfect location, for the perfect price. But, have you looked at anything else besides the expensive interior finishes, the impeccable layout, the opulent appliances, or the inspiring landscape? My job is to look beyond the cosmetic appeal of the home and to assess the performance of critical systems like perimeter drainage, plumbing, heating, electrical, roof condition, and attic ventilation.
During you home inspection I will offer opinions on the probability of problems based on the current design features and may identify repairs done by previous owners. I will also point out issues that will be difficult to maintain on an ongoing basis and will provide insight into proper maintenance of the structure. Keep in mind that, while leaks may go undetected if there are no visible signs present, I will always look for secondary signs indicating any issues using both visual clues and thermal imaging.
