Home maintenance inspections are an important part of protecting your investment. The purpose of this type of inspection is to identify issues early on, before they have a chance to lead to bigger, more expensive problems. As an example, any protrusions through your roof, such as chimneys or vent pipes, have some form of flashing installed. This flashing is responsible for preventing water leaks at this most vulnerable part of your roof. Since these flashings are subjected to extreme temperatures, snow, hail, and rain, they are common spots where moisture gains entry into your home. This moisture intrusion may not be evident inside the finished area of the home until a large amount of damage has occurred. Common issues caused by this type of water leak are; roof sheathing rot, roof structure rot, insulation damage, mold growth, and eventually, drywall and finishing material damage.
A home maintenance inspection from InfoTec Home Inspection will focus on finding items like deteriorated roof flashings. We will also check all other aspects of the home for needed maintenance items. Best of all, this service is completely customizable! We can do exterior only, interior only, roof only, siding only, etc., or any combination of these. Another item that is common during a maintenance inspection is a Radon Test. InfoTec provides these at a substantial discount when performed with an inspection.
