Welcome to Brooklyn! At Petri Plumbing & Heating, we’re always happy to see people moving to this great borough. But even if you love your new home’s character and charm, take a minute to consider whether you might need a plumbing inspection to prevent costly — or unhealthy — surprises later.
Our iconic Brooklyn homes are full of history, but sometimes so is their plumbing. A home inspection can identify and remedy issues before they become disasters. Here are some plumbing problems an inspection can find and fix.
If your home was built before 1986, the EPA says it’s likely to contain lead pipes. Lead in drinking water is especially dangerous to young children and can lead to nervous system damage, learning disabilities, impaired hearing and more.
Our plumbing inspection will let you know definitively whether your home’s pipes contain lead, and our service experts will present options to replace them.
Not every leak is noticeable inside the home. Some small or slow leaks you would never know about without an expert’s help. And those small leaks can still damage your home or lead to harmful mold or mildew growth. Worst-case scenario, a small leak over time develops into a burst pipe, flooding your home with water.
A plumbing inspection will locate these stealthy leaks and fix them before they cause havoc in your new home.
Is your water heater safe? Is it the right size to serve all the people living in your home? Is it operating efficiently? A plumbing inspection will answer all these questions. A repair might address any problems, but it might be time to install a new, more efficient water heater. If so, our service experts can recommend the right course of action.
There are many other issues a plumbing inspection can find and fix in your Brooklyn home. If you think it might be time for an inspection, or if you’re new to the neighborhood and want to make sure everything’s working right in your home, Petri Plumbing & Heating can help.
