A house will likely be the largest purchase of your life, so it’s definitely worth investing a little time in research. Hiring a home inspection service can help you make an informed decision and prevent surprise expenses after you’re locked into a contract. A home inspection is a comprehensive examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, typically done after the signing of a contract or purchase agreement. This is done by an impartial party to generate the most objective, complete report possible.
Northern Utah Home Inspection Services
Here at North Star Home Inspectors, we provide an extensive 150-point inspection. We examine everything from the roof to the foundation, so you can be confident in the results. The inspection takes a few hours and the report is typically generated later the same day, and always within 24 hours. We also offer additional tests beyond a general home inspection, such as radon or methamphetamine testing.
A general home inspection typically covers the condition of the home’s heating, central air conditioning, interior plumbing, and electrical systems. It also includes the condition of the roof, attic, walls, ceilings, floors, foundation, basement, visible insulation, and many other structural components.
Do I Need a Home Inspection?
Whether you are buying or selling a home, an inspection is necessary to alleviate the concerns of either party. Make sure that there is a home inspection contingency clause before signing a purchase agreement.
A house is a serious purchase and buyers need to know they won’t regret their decision. Foundational damage is often not apparent from the surface, but it can lead to serious costs later on. To avoid any unpleasant surprises, a buyer should insist on a home inspection. If a problem is uncovered, the buyer will have the option whether or not to continue with the purchase. If no serious damage is discovered, the buyer can be more confident in their purchase.
Obtaining a home inspection is also a good idea when selling a house. Similar to buyers, you don’t want to be caught off guard if a serious issue is discovered. If you have a home inspection done, you can take care of any necessary repairs before they cost you a sale. It is important to know the overall condition of a house before attempting to sell it.
