Knowing is Half the Battle: Why You Need a Home Inspection
Are you buying a new home and need to know if it’s a lemon? Are you already a homeowner and want to know of any potential maintenance headaches? A home plumbing inspection can give you peace of mind in both those cases.
No homeowner wants to face the prospect of unexpected cold showers, backed-up toilets or flooded floors. If you’re in the middle of the home-buying process, knowing the state of the plumbing can help you negotiate the best deal.
A complete home inspection of your plumbing can give you the information needed to make the best decisions in a purchase or for proactive maintenance. The experts at Petri Plumbing & Heating will investigate every last bit of plumbing at your location.
Thorough Home Inspection and Why You Need It
A thorough plumbing inspection looks at all aspects of the system. A major concern is the presence of lead in drinking water. If the inspection finds lead piping, your Brooklyn plumbing experts at Petri will inform you about the most economical options for replacing it for the sake of safety and health.
We will also check your water meter for leaks or installation problems. All shut-off valves will be checked to ensure they work. Homeowners tend to prefer a shut-off valve does its job of keeping water from flooding their house in the event of a broken pipe or fixture. We’ll also evaluate your hot water heater for safety and efficiency. We’ll make sure it has sufficient capacity for the number of people in your home.
We’ll examine every individual fixture in your home, turning them on to inspect for proper water pressure. If you have a septic system instead of a municipal sewer system, we’ll inspect it for proper drainage. It’s also important to examine pipe insulation to make sure the piping is not at risk for breakage.
It’s our job at Petri Plumbing & Heating to thoroughly educate you about the condition of your plumbing with a complete inspection. Our team is committed to complete satisfaction. Our 100 percent money back guarantee proves it. Call for a home inspection in Brooklyn or surrounding area today at (718) 748-1254.
