Benefits of Plumbing Inspections for New Homeowners
There are three primary benefits of having your plumbing inspected by a professional plumber prior to closing on your house: they will be able to go in-depth and find any building code violations that need to be corrected before you buy the home, they will provide you with an estimate of how long your pipes will last after you buy the home, and they can provide you with a detailed look of where you will have potential problems after you purchase the home.
Finding building code violations
Estimating plumbing system longevity
Plumbing inspectors excel at looking at your whole plumbing system and determining how many years you can expect to use it. You may be used to this type of analysis as your insurance company will estimate the remaining length of time that your entire home is expected to remain standing. With plumbing, the advantage is that even if everything works, you will know how antiquated every part is and can ask for changes before you close if the system is expected to last that long.
Finding Plumbing System Weaknesses
Aside from having a plumbing inspection, making changes to any code violations, antiquated pipes, or potential weak spots should put your plumbing system in excellent condition prior to you moving into your home.
There are a lot of examples of people who move into homes and then find out that their pipes are not as perfect as they thought they were. By having a plumbing inspection before you close, you can obtain the information that you need to make any repair or maintenance decisions before they creep up on you.
