Every 3-5 years, you should have a home inspector come out and do a maintenance inspection. They can see the little signs that something is starting to go: small cracks, uneven wearing, or even just appliances such as water heaters and boilers reaching the eventual end of their lives.
Considering the fee for electrical, foundation, or roof repairs can be three to four times higher, without a maintenance inspection. A home maintenance inspection is a cost-effective way to keep your home in tiptop shape and keep little problems from turning into big problems.
While homeowners can identify only cosmetic deficiencies in a home, a trained inspector is able to examine the technical aspects and mechanical function of the home. Our inspector will examine the house from basement to the attic, and identify faults, defects and other problems before they become your problems and turn into expensive repairs. A detailed and comprehensive report provided by us then allows you to undertake repairs as suggested.
