Why are Real Estate Inspections so important? Real estate is the largest financial investment most people make in their entire lifetimes. Real Estate inspections or commercial property inspections will help lower your investment risk, and can also identify any potential safety concerns. Our real estate inspectors are committed to providing you with valuable information about your new home or commercial real estate purchase. They will give you the information you need to make an informed decision about your important investment.
Have your newly purchased property professionally inspected by LEMCO Inspections as early as possible in the buying process to save money on hidden maintenance or insurance costs which you may be able to have the seller or builder correct. Our real estate inspectors are able to professionally examine every structural and mechanical component of your home or commercial property.
Have a real estate inspector examine your property and help you schedule any maintenance requirements. Many costly repairs can be avoided by identifying damage or deterioration early, before the problem worsens. Many older properties should be inspected regularly for general maintenance repairs. Mobile/manufactured homes should have a tie-down inspection, especially before hurricane season. Call LEMCO Inspections to make sure that both your property and your investment are safe. We pride ourselves on providing prompt, professional, and courteous customer service.
Real Estate Inspections Reveals the Anatomy of a House
When you shop for a home, whether you are looking for a fixer-upper, new construction, or one in move-in condition, there are generally essential components that make up any structure.
An electrical system is part of the mechanical components of the structure. A home inspector is not required to report on Code violations, but he or she is required to conduct a thorough visual examination of the visible aspects of a home’s electrical system. This includes outlets, fixtures and circuit wiring.
A home inspector can only be responsible for the components that are visible. Much of your home’s plumbing system is hidden inside walls. But what is visible will offer clues to your home’s plumbing health. Galvanized pipe is often indicative of outdated material. Its corrosive qualities will cause it to fail before other materials. Copper piping is preferable, but there are many other rigid and semi-rigid synthetic materials that are long-lasting and affordable.
A structural inspection takes full inventory of those physical structures that literally hold a home together. When they fall into disrepair, whether to ravages of time, natural disasters, or faulty workmanship, they often cost big bucks to repair.
