A lot can happen in five years. You’ve had five Christmases, five Thanksgivings, and twenty seasons worth of weather. In all of that hustle and bustle, what has happened to your home?
Have strong winds affected the roof? Has the basement flooded? Have the pipes frozen? All this to say a home can change a lot in five years and a fresh home inspection may be prudent.
Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why you should have someone periodically re-inspect your home.
Roof-Related Issues Can Crop Up Over Time.
A roof can be challenging to keep an eye on. After all, it’s probably not something you see every day or even every month. Things like leaks can clue you in to a roof problem, but without a Maryland home inspection, you may not be aware to developing issues.
Due to the high cost of roof replacement, catching problems early can make a big difference to a thrifty home owner.
HVAC Systems Can Become Costly When They Become Inefficient.
One item that we take a look at when we do a home inspection is the HVAC system and all that goes along with it. We want to make sure that it is still performing its best, even after five years.
Poor Fireplace and Chimney Maintenance Can Be Dangerous.
Fireplaces and Chimneys are wonderful additions to any home, but without the proper maintenance they can become quite dangerous.
When we tackle a home inspection, we always take a look at these features to ensure they are performing safely.
