Looking to buy a home? Get the plumbing inspected before you do!


Nashville PlumberHomeowners have so many maintenance aspects to stay on top of that it is easy to forget one or let one slide a bit longer than recommended. Although it happens and is understandable, it can result in costly repairs and be most inconvenient. Inspections of all operating systems are important to be sure, but the most important is a plumbing inspection. Plumbing issues go from minor to major very quickly so it is beneficial to know the condition of the pipes, the joints, the connections to the sewer and the pressure capacity of the entire system. The time to learn that your system needs attention is not after it stops working or backs up into your sinks and toilets.

Proactive maintenance begins with that initial inspections and continues with the advice and work of a plumbing company you trust. Clearing out drains, sealing leaks or reinforcing older pipes can avoid the need for major repairs and save you money. Being aware of the need for upgrades early allows you to plan for that expense rather than being surprised by a problem that needs immediate attention and finding yourself ill prepared. Improving an older system little by little is possible and more affordable than needing to renovate the entire thing all at once.

Nashville Plumbing InspectionNew homeowners searching the market will want to know the condition of the plumbing in a house before considering making an offer on a property. In fact, you will not get far without one. An inspection is needed for getting approved for a mortgage, getting proper insurance coverage and getting accurate property tax information. If you are thinking or renovating your new home or adding on to it, an inspection will inform you about what your plumbing can handle. You may want to add a whirlpool tub to that upstairs master bathroom, but it may not be feasible with the current system. You may want to put in that pool, but may find you need to upgrade first.

The importance of a plumbing inspection cannot be understated. Even if there are no problems or areas for concern and no plans for any renovations, the peace of mind that your plumbing is solid and in good operating order is worth the time and cost of having it inspected initially and inspected as often as recommended. You will be glad you did.
