Why Do I Need To Inspect My Home?

Believe it or not, this is one of those questions that no one ever asks me, but one that I would like to answer. Why do I need to inspect my home? The answer is simple, so that you can save yourself from the future pain of expensive home repair bills.

It's not something that most people do on a regular basis, but the older someone becomes, the more often they seem to go into their doctor for a physical examination. This same thing is true with your home.

If you live in a home that's less than 10 years old, you might not need to inspect it as much as a house that 70 years old. The older something becomes without doing the proper maintenance, the greater the chances are that you will have more problems with your home in the future.

If your home is over 20 years old, it wouldn't be a bad idea to start inspecting your home every six months or at least once a year. If you don't have any plans on inspecting your home once a year, you seriously need to consider inspecting your home at least once every two to three years.

Now if you remember the original question,” Why do we need to inspect our home?” It's to save us money. If you don't inspect your home regularly and you had a water pipe leaking on your roof or a electrical problem in your garage, how would you ever know about it, without a home inspection?

I have seen small water leaks cost homeowners a small fortune. Almost all of the problems that I find myself repairing on other people's homes, could have easily been avoided if the property was maintained and inspected regularly.

Remember that your home is probably your largest financial assets and if you don't take care of it, you could find yourself paying hefty home repair bills in the future.
