Why You Should Get A Plumbing Inspection Before You Buy A New Home

When most people fall in love with a new home, there is often a list of several things that get checked before they sign on the dotted line. Superficial things are checked thoroughly since those are the things that people see. But if you really want to know about the home you are buying, you need to do a plumbing inspection. According to WaterSense, over “10 percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day”; those leaks can build up to some serious water bills. What other problems could the plumbing be causing to your new home?
When buying a home, many people think to check the insulation and windows or electrical and heating systems, but often plumbing is forgotten about. Plumbing can be some of the most difficult projects, don’t let bad plumbing ruin your new home!

Why should you hire a professional plumber?

Homeowners like a good DIY, and we don’t blame them! Working on your own home at your own pace can save you a lot of money. But sometimes cutting corners may cost you more in the long run. Even the basic residential plumbing can have a lot of parts that can (and will) go wrong. Here are just a few reasons why you should take the time to hire a professional plumber; not only for your plumbing inspection but also for any other home projects you might be thinking of doing yourself.

  • A professional can check all pipes or drains and knows exactly how to fix them
  • Plumbers have all of the tools for the job
  • You don’t want to take a risk making the problem worse
  • Professionals can get the jobs done quickly and efficiently, all while saving your valuable time

What will a professional do for my plumbing inspection?

One of the best reasons to bring a professional on board for your home inspections is simply because of the knowledge they have. If the professional finds problems in the home, you fell in love with, then the plumber will let you know what they see. From there they can give you a general estimate of how much those projects will cost and how long they will take. They give you some insight to help you know if you are walking into a project that is too big for your budget to handle.
