Home Maintenance Inspection

Home Maintenance Inspection

How long have you lived in your home?

When was the last time you went up on the roof of your home or into the attic/crawlspace? Did you know that most sealants used in the construction of your home only last 5 - 10 years?

Asphalt shingles generally have a life expectancy of 20 - 30 years, in optimal conditions. These items will begin to deteriorate over time, and when they do, it often leads to moisture intrusion.

This may begin as only a small pin hole sized leak, but over an extended period of time it can potentially lead to thousands of dollars in damage to your home, your belongings, and potential microbial growth.

Do you have recessed lighting installed in the ceilings that are below the attic space?

If they are not IC-Rated and they are in contact with insulation and building materials, the light fixtures can be a potential fire hazard.

Has your home been subjected to storms containing high winds and falling debris?

This can often damage roofing surfaces and even rip shingles off the roof.

These defects may not be easily visible from the ground and may require an inspection from up on the roof itself.

Chimneys can also contain damage/defects that allows moisture intrusion into the roof assembly.
