Learn About Maintaining Your New Home

It is important to remember that even though a house looks like it is in great condition, appearances are frequently deceiving. The house may have serious hidden flaws. An extensive checklist is utilized to provide a solid view of apparent and, in some cases, potential problems.

Some of the main areas examined include:

  • Grounds, Water Issues, and Landscaping
  • Foundation, Structure, and Squareness
  • Roof Defects (Shingles, Fascia, Flashing, etc.)
  • Exterior Condition, Decay, Rot, Disintegrating Masonry, Stucco, and Paint
  • Doors, Windows, and Trim
  • Interior Framing
  • Stained Ceilings
  • Insulation
  • Heating and Cooling
  • Electrical Panel, Wiring, Outlets and GFCIs Where Required
  • Bathroom and Kitchen Functionality
  • Plumbing, Water Heater, Water Pressure and Temperature

During the inspection, you may want to consider accompanying Dale. You can learn a lot about where the house’s infrastructure is located, as well as how to perform ongoing maintenance and emergency procedures (gas, electrical, and water shut-off).
