Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. Before you buy, you should have a buyer’s home inspection to avoid potentially costly repairs that would otherwise go undetected until they become even more costly. Additionally, the home inspector looks for safety issues that could harm you, your family, or your guests. Tanque Verde Home Inspections will provide you with a detailed home inspection report highlighting areas of concern, so they can be addressed prior to the transaction.
Unfortunately, home builders aren’t perfect. Mistakes could be made, or short cuts could be taken. Tanque Verde Home Inspections offers pre-drywall inspections and inspections prior to the expiration of the warranty. Pre-drywall inspections offer a last chance to find defects that will be hidden behind the walls and a less costly fix for the builder because issues are still accessible. Most new home warranties are valid for 12 months. After 11 months you should have a home inspector look for issues in the quality of construction before your warranty expires, so that the responsibility to fix the items lies with the builder and not you.
Prior to listing your home for sale, a pre-listing home inspection can find things that may otherwise cause a potential buyer to walk away from your property if not properly addressed. The home inspector will provide a deficiency report highlighting all of the major deficiencies found during the inspection. This enables you to resolve major issues beforehand to help facilitate a smoother sale.
Even if you’re not buying or selling your home, issues may develop over time that could affect the safety of your family or cost you money if unaddressed. Having a home inspection done every 2-3 years helps ensure the value of your investment. Deferring maintenance on your home will lead to more costly maintenance later on.
A sewer scope inspection is a video inspection of the main drain line or “lateral” typically from a clean out to the city tap or house connection to the sewer. The video inspection is to determine if there are any issues in the main line such as cracks, roots, sags, or other defects that could cause a back up or a failure in the main line. This is especially important in older homes or with homes with large trees near the main line.
