If you’re in the market to buy or sell a home – you should have a home plumbing inspection done first. While it’s great to give everything a visual once over yourself, it also doesn’t help if you don’t know what you’re looking for. Problems are often hidden beneath the surface. That’s why plumbing inspections should be done by professional plumbers.
Even if you’re not buying or selling it’s important to have a plumbing inspection done. It’s a sure-fire way to avoid costly repairs or replacements.
For potential buyers, it’s a good way to see what’s wrong with the property ahead of time. This allows you to decide if you want to continue with the purchase or opt-out, giving you a chance to find a home without costly repairs attached. You may even be able to negotiate a lower price due to the faults. In some instances, repairing the faults will be quick and cost-effective. If the damage is serious, including corrosion or root damage to the pipes, then costly replacements will be needed. As a potential buyer, the choice is yours.
For sellers, it’s a good way to ensure that your property is up to scratch for potential buyers. Sellers can ensure they stay firm on their price, safe in the knowledge that their plumbing is in prime condition. Especially if checked by licensed and insured plumbing contractors.
When relying on professional plumbers such as the team at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric, there are a few things that will be checked. Both the inside of your home as well as the outside will need to be inspected.
Some of the more basic inspection duties include:
After a plumbing inspection, you should speak with your plumbing contractor. You should be given a detailed report about any and all issues found during the inspection. This report should also let you know if any plumbing repairs or replacements are needed. Remember that all plumbing work must be done by a licensed and insured contractor. While it’s completely possible to DIY simple things, you shouldn’t take the risk when it comes to your home’s plumbing.
You need to take the appropriate steps to fix any plumbing issues as soon as possible. Resolving plumbing issues ensures that you have a decent standard of living. No homeowner wants to deal with broken sewer lines leaking in the lawn, nor a burst pipe causing water damage inside. An added benefit to professionally plugging all leaks in your home is the decrease to your utility bills. Fixing leaks will lower the cost of your monthly water usage.
For new and old homeowners alike, regular preventative maintenance is important. This ensures you’re not caught off guard by any repairs or replacements.
