What Is an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection?
You can think of an annual home maintenance inspection as a preventative maintenance inspection or a doctor’s checkup for your home. A home maintenance inspection is designed to look for routine maintenance or repairs that may have been missed or any seemingly minor problems with the home that could become major financial or safety issues. The objective of the home maintenance inspection is to keep the systems in your home running smoothly and save you time — and money — in the future.
After your inspection, you’ll receive a summary of your home’s condition, with recommendations and helpful tips to keep it in great shape. We recommend performing a home maintenance inspection once a year.
An annual home maintenance inspection covers the following:
- Roof and attic
- Gutters and downspouts
- Insulation and ventilation
- Basement, crawlspace, and foundation
- Grading and drainage
- Electrical systems
- Heating and cooling systems (HVAC)
- Plumbing systems
- Water heating systems
- Windows and doors
- Driveway and sidewalks
- Decks, porches, and railings
- And much more
Why Hire a Home Inspector for Your Maintenance Inspection?
With a trained eye developed through experience and formal education, your home inspector knows where and how to look for issues that may otherwise go unnoticed for years. It’s important to catch problems early on when they are cheaper and easier to repair. For example, a simple leaking pipe could turn into a major structural problem years later under the right circumstances.
