Do not buy before checking here if the property you are purchasing has potential hidden dangers: like mold in walls, cracked foundation, structural damage, and faulty pipes!!
Imagine this! You’re buying a house or renting an apartment, wouldn’t you like to know if there were any significant damages to that property? You would be able to tell the inspector where to look or not sign that lease until they are fixed. There could be many hidden dangers lurking in your walls, roof, and foundation. A quick fix from the homeowner can hide the problem until it is too late. Now you are left with the mess that could cost you thousands in repairs.
To name a few:
- Mold In Your Walls
- Moisture In Roof
- Rat Infestation
- Bad Plumbing
- Structural Damages
Could all be hidden problems in your walls and roof.
An Inspector has special tools to find these things, but they need to know where to look. They can’t keep poking their devices in every wall looking for danger if there is no sign. A patch job can do the trick for the homeowner, but now you are left with the mess. That is why we are here to help. Tenants and neighbors can leave comments about a home or building that is not fit to live in or have hidden problems that need to get fixed before you buy.
