Inspect Before You Renovate – Top 5 Reasons

Home renovation or Home Remodelling is a big project, you should not take it lightly, but very seriously in order to maintain aesthetic decency, functional ease and of course to make each penny spent worthwhile. Do not renovate or remodel without having a Home Inspection done – Why do you ask? I will give you reasons which you cannot ignore and should not defy.

Don’t let your Home rob your comfort & enjoyment

Have you been complaining about the comfort factor of your home for some time now? Would you like to make minor or major changes without knowing what’s lurking behind the wall on which you are planning to fix a new trendy cabinet? Note down the things that have tarnished your comfort and put them in front of a Home Inspector so that again few years down the line your home doesn’t rob you off your comfort.

Keep your home close and your wife closer

Are you waiting for the cracked sink to fall on your wife’s newly manicured feet? I assume ‘NO’. Fortunately the crack on the sink was visible to you. But there can be many such cracks on the wall, floor, ceiling etc. which are no way visible to you and are sure to pose dangerous threat if not taken care at the right time. Imagine even if a small chunk of ceiling falls on your wife…God bless you. So before you renovate, get a Home Inspection done to avoid such unforeseen situations.

Don’t let the sale process fall through

Put up a house for sale or rent that will be appealing to the buyers and tenants. Don’t just cover that big damp in the living area with a new wall paper. The wall paper will pop up and then eventually flake off. You can run, you can hide but you cannot escape the buyers or tenants. If you want this mess, then you can continue playing hide & seek or else seek the expert advice of a Professional Home Inspector. They will tell you the necessary actions to be taken and you can remain stress free before and after sale.
