When was the last time you were in your crawlspace, your attic, or up on your roof?
For a few of you, maybe it wasn’t that long ago. But if you’re like me, never. So it’s easy to see how what should have been a small maintenance issue can easily turn into something significantly bigger.
Most homeowners think that home inspections are only used when buying or selling a home. But did you know that it is a good idea to have an inspection on your home even if you’ve owned it for five or more years?
So what is a home maintenance inspection? It’s a standard full home inspection, but done for the current owner. You can think of this inspection as your home’s checkup visit to the doctor that only needs to happen every five to 10 years, depending on the age of your home. A maintenance inspection will help you prioritize your home improvement list and help you find out about small problems before they turn into really big, and really expensive ones.
In some cases, a maintenance inspection will reveal that what was once thought to be a small problem has already turned into something bigger. A maintenance inspection also gives the homeowner a chance to have a professional home inspector answer questions with a completely unbiased viewpoint. The home inspector isn’t there to sell you anything. They aren’t looking for a project. He or she is just there to give you unbiased, accurate information about your home and its current condition.
