When Buying a Home in Brooklyn, Invest in a Plumbing Inspection
If you have a resolution for 2017 to update your existing Brooklyn home or look for a new living space in the New Year, one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your family is having a complete home plumbing inspection undertaken. If you are interested in seeing the true state of your home plumbing system, the team at Petri Plumbing can help offer piece of mind with a complete home plumbing inspection program.
Home plumbing systems are hard to inspect thoroughly, especially if you do not have the right tools or expertise to know exactly what to look for in your home. At Petri Plumbing, we inspect every aspect of the home’s plumbing, including visible inspections for exterior clues of damage or wear, along with a video inspection of the plumbing system to find potential issues within your piping. A plumbing inspection done by the professional plumbers at Petri Plumbing can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars in potential repairs to your Brooklyn home plumbing system.
Some of the most common plumbing inspection items we look for include:
Lead pipes: Many older homes in Brooklyn may still have lead pipes, so our teams inspect for lead pipes in homes. If lead pipes are found in place during a home plumbing inspection, Petri Plumbing offers repiping services for our clients.
Bad sewer piping: A sewer line that has the potential for clogging can not only cause major issues for your Brooklyn home, but it can also lead to more dangerous conditions that can put your home at risk for extensive damage.
Leaking hot water heater: A water heater leak can cause major flooding and damage to a home. Our teams will inspect the piping related to your hot water heater and make recommendations on the longevity of your hot water heater and next steps that should be taken.
Piping insulation: Brooklyn winter weather can cause serious damage to your home plumbing, including the potential for frozen pipes to burst. If you do have a burst pipe during the winter, the team at Petri Plumbing can assist you with our burst pipe repair. In the meantime, our teams can inspect your pipes to make sure that there is adequate insulation for protection during the coldest months of the year.
The team at Petri Plumbing has worked with a number of Brooklyn homeowners to conduct home plumbing inspections to ensure that existing home plumbing is working properly, as well as helping home buyers to have a complete inspection before purchasing a home.
