Why is an Annual Home Inspection Important?

Your home has many interconnected and interdependent parts. A vulnerability in one area can cause significant problems in another area. For instance, a roof leak can damage the roof’s structure but it can also compromise your attic insulation and damage your ceiling paint. An annual home inspection and repair will ensure that every part of your home are in good condition.

Annual Home Inspection Tips

First, you need to inspect your entire exterior and look for weather damage, moss growth, stains, and pests. Next, you need to examine your plumbing. Look for signs of leaks in all exposed pipes, and look for signs of corrosion. Make sure that there are no clogs as well.

You also need to look around your septic tank for vegetation or soggy ground. This can indicate that the tank is full. For your interior, you need to look for cracks, sags, and other signs of damage on your ceiling, floor, and walls. You also need to check the weatherstripping around your doors and windows. Then look at the attic and see if there are any holes or signs of animal activity. Lastly, note down any problems you might see during the inspection and either hire a professional to fix the problem or do it yourself.
