Why you Need a Home Inspection

Home inspections conducted by a professional inspection company are an excellent precaution when purchasing a home. The inspection usually includes appliances, plumbing, electrical, heating and ventilating, bath and kitchen fixtures, roof, foundation and general structure. The condition of these items will be determined. Should any significant problems be discovered, you may even wish to employ a specific professional to inspect the home as well, such as a roofer, or heating and air-conditioning repair service.

Other tests and inspections that are conducted include radon tests, soil tests, asbestos inspections, well and septic inspections and home energy audits. These inspections will give the ability to buy the home with an excellent knowledge of its condition, and allow you to prepare for future maintenance.
