Major issues related to the integrity of the building
1. Termite Damage and Infestation
It is a type of damage caused to real estate properties over which you do not want to lose control. Termite infestations are a reality you have to face when you have untreated pine. These dangerous pests are capable of literally turning the wooden structure of your dream home into dust in just a few months. A reliable home inspection activity should be able to check places and locations in the home for traces of termites.
2. Proper Disposal of Gruh Foundation
This is an important structural issue that should be properly noted in the home inspection written report. When the ground becomes wet or dries out slowly over time, both hairline and structural cracks can develop and affect slab foundations. Structural and cosmetic repairs must be properly indicated in the written report to correct these structural anomalies. One of the more serious issues you should be concerned with is your potential liability in cases where plaster and masonry fall off as a result of cracks and problems in the lathe and plaster.
3. Problems in the plumbing system and septic system
You must check your real estate property's plumbing system before a home inspection. The inspection activity will involve opening several taps simultaneously to check the water pressure. The septic system will also be inspected for potential drainage problems. Inspection of the septic system is usually done using dye. The presence of dye material above the septic drain field is a sign of a drainage problem.
