Use A Home Inspector To Keep Your House Healthy


You don't have to be buying or selling a home to have a home inspection. A home inspector can assist you in giving your home an annual checkup.

"It's like having the doctor conduct your annual physical," Mark Simmons, owner of JAM Home Inspections, said. "The home inspector will come to check out your home. The inspection report will point out what's OK, what's not OK, and what needs monitoring. This could potentially save customers a lot of money by catching issues early."

A professional inspection of your home can help in keeping it in top condition, especially if you don't know what should be checked on a regular basis or if you're unsure about what to look for.

A home inspection done by a professional is a thorough, in-depth visual examination of the structure and operating components of the home. It includes such things as landscaping effects on the foundation, structural components, roofing, chimneys, gutters and downspouts, siding and trim, attics, plumbing, electrical, heating, interior rooms, and the condition of the basement. An inspection of a typical home generally takes a few hours to complete.

"We provide information along with our report to help people perform their own ongoing home checkups," Simmons said. "We also have a special plan for ongoing professional checkups for those people who request professional help."
