Why every home purchase should include an inspection for plumbing issues

Inspections are customary when buying a home, but there are some important things that are sometimes overlooked. Platinum Property Inspections shares why every home purchase should include an inspection for plumbing issues.

These are some common plumbing issues that buyers should look at before buying a home:

  • Leaking toilets.
  • Leaks in toilets and their plumbing components can cause serious, costly water damage.
  • Experts recommend that home buyers inspect the area around the toilet for signs of problems. If the floor feels soft or if the bowl shifts out of place when you move it, ask the homeowner what is going on.

Clogged drains. Drains that are clogged and improperly installed water pipes can also be serious problems for home buyers if they aren’t inspected properly. All faucets should be inspected. Let the water run for a few minutes. If the water doesn’t drain quickly, it may be sign that the pipes are clogged. Also, check under sinks to look for any signs of water damage.

Water heater. Consider where the tank is located. If the water heater leaks, will it damage hardwood or laminate floors, carpeting, or furniture? This is why most hot water tanks are placed out of the way of these things. If they are near to a living space, it could be a more expensive problem if you run into issues in the future.

Also, a typical home inspection doesn’t include sewer lines, but Platinum Property Inspections will suggest hiring a professional plumber to perform a sewer camera inspection in certain cases. The cost of this inspection will be worth it. With every full home inspection, Platinum Property Inspections provides Sewer Line Protection from SewerGard - the world leader in underground repair coverage. Buy with confidence and worry less knowing that main water and sewer collapses and breaks are covered, up to $4,000.

Taking the time to inspect for plumbing problems can help you avoid costly repairs. Platinum Property Inspections believes every home purchase should include an inspection for plumbing issues. Purchasing a home is a large investment. If you're looking for your new Prescott home, don't buy it without a thorough inspection first.

5 out of 5 stars They were very clear and helpful as soon as they answered the phone. They scheduled us the very next day. When they came, they went right to work. They explain what they will do very clearly and answer all question thoughtfully. They a have a mobile mini-van that has everything in it, including a printer. You get your home inspection printed out immediately. Very competent people. They also take a credit card, which is nice because ALL our cash was wrapped up in our down payment. I would use them again for sure.

5 out of 5 stars They are incredibly knowledgeable and professional. All of them did a thorough inspection on the home we are planning to buy and then took the time to answer all of our questions on the spot. We left the inspection with a notebook complete with a summary of the inspection, color photos and detailed information on everything inspected. The best part though was their willingness to answer more question several days after the inspection. They truly offer superior customer service before, during and after the job is done.
