When purchasing a new home, knowing if pests reside within your property is crucial. Pests, such as termites, have the capability to wreak havoc on a property if left unchecked.
Properties that are not inhabited during its time on the market are more likely to have infestations that are unknown to both the seller and future homeowner.
Areas of concern include: open access points within the foundation or lower levels of a home, significant moisture deposits, beneath exterior cladding and interior drywall.
Early detection can help save you money on any substantial repair costs. We will provide you with a full inspection for any damage caused by these pesky critters to ensure you receive the most accurate information to alleviate this worry.
AGED HOME INSPECTION
If you’re considering buying a home that has been standing for many years, the possibility that minor or major issues arise is compounded.
When focused on the aged home market, ensuring that you get the right pre-purchase home inspection is vital. Trusting in Austin Home Inspection Group will get you a thorough and detailed inspection.
We will cover every aspect of the property’s construction in order to deliver the most accurate representation of its current state and highlight any potential issues that may arise over the course of ownership.
Sometimes a key aspect of the property to have inspected is one that you will likely never lay eyes on. And by this we mean the sewer or septic system that is installed in your property, which provides both fresh water and the removal of wastewater.
Issues within the sewer system vary when it comes to the overall cost of repair, and having a new septic system put into place can also be a major expense.
A faulty septic system can also send mold spores back into the home which can lead to growth in areas that are prone to moisture buildup (eg. basements and bathrooms).
Mold remediation can be extremely costly. Understanding the current condition of the property’s sewer system prior to making any decisions on a property can be just as vital as information on the foundation or other important systems.
