Home Maintenance Inspections
Be Proactive With a Home Inspection
Home Maintenance Inspections are for homeowners who want to take a proactive approach to home maintenance. Failure to maintain it properly can damage your home and downgrade its value.
A home maintenance inspection by Two Peaks Home Inspection will identify the areas of your home that need attention. This will include the roof, gutters and drain spouts, fireplaces and chimneys, furnaces and air conditioning, smoke detectors and other safety equipment, plumbing and faucets, windows and doors, basement walls and drains.
It’s helpful to think of a maintenance inspection like your routine check ups at the dentist or doctor. Once you’ve been in your home for a few years, it’s great to be able to ensure that things are running the way they should — before real trouble starts.
In a typical maintenance inspection, the home owner is often happy to allow Two Peaks to take the extra time to look behind the scenes and make sure things are in order. The owner can ask any questions they would like to: If they feel there is a strange noise coming from their furnace, or they are unsure about drainage, or the safety of their deck. The inspector is there to answer all questions in an impartial, unbiased and professional way.
The owner ends up feeling completely assured that their home is safe and secure, or else completely aware of what repairs need to be done, and when.
We recommend that these inspections happen in spring, right after winter, or fall, to prepare for winter. You’ll have the knowledge you need to take to builders or contractors when you book the maintenance work.
One important reason to have our impartial and professional report on hand before booking with a contractor or other repair professional is that there will be no concern about trying to upsell you on repairs you don’t need. We’ll tell you whether you need that roof repaired or replaced this year, or if it can wait a few more.
