Buying a new home is exciting, but it’s also a very complicated process. There are so many important home inspections that it can be easy to overlook something vital. Before you close on your new home, make sure to check off everything on your new home inspection list. Here are a few key areas that are important to remember:
Make sure all visible pipes are free of damage and leaks. Also check for water stains around all the pipes as this could be a sign of leakage. And don’t forget to make sure to check the water heater for signs of rust. The water heater also needs to be properly vented and appropriately sized for your new home.
Check that all visible wiring is in good condition and that all cables are secured and properly protected. You also need to make sure that all cables are properly attached to the service panel. Make sure the service panel has the appropriate capacity so that your breakers don’t overheat.
Wood Infestation Inspection Report
Despite the fact that Georgia has the highest saturation of termites in the country, a Wood Infestation Inspection Report is not legally required before closing on a home. However, skipping this step could cost you thousands of dollars in termite repair costs!
