What should I do before buying a home?

Why Plumbing Inspections are Important for New Homeowners.

Montgomery PlumberOne of the things on your moving todo list should include scheduling a plumbing inspection. Why you may ask? There are several reasons every home would require a complete plumbing inspection before the new owners move in. Several reasons would include hidden leaks, water heater malfunction, sprinkler and dripper malfunction, cracked pipes, and so much more.

Hidden leaks might not always present themselves at the time of move in. They normally happen after the water in the house has been turned back on for the new residence. [Having a plumber there to inspect all the pipes and faucets in the house is one way to prevent hidden leaks you wouldn’t find till later.]1

There’s nothing like getting settled in on your first night at your new home only to take a shower and find your hot water has cut out. Plumbers can also take care of water heater malfunctions by ordering new parts and having them installed when they are needed and before you move in.

Your gardening area is another place where a plumber can help you find problems before they happen. If you like to have a professional looking garden and the last homeowners had a drip system installed, you should have this checked promptly before moving into your house. Pressure issues and unwanted leaks could sneak up on you due to past harsh winters and growing seasons. While out in the yard you should have your sprinkler system checked as well, the same issues could cause your lawn to suffer during the summer heat.

When looking for a plumber you should always find one in your area that has an up to date license, who is reputable with your new neighbors, and a company that has a good rating with the Better Business Bureau. This insures you receive quality service for your money.

Overall a plumbing inspection can help you find all new problems, prevent future problems, and help you get moved into your new home quickly and easily. All inspections should be completed before moving in to ensure your home is safe and ready for you.
