With the constant evolution of the real estate market, I’ve found it meaningful to share DIY Inspection tips and tricks with my social media followers and the general public. I’ve compiled a few of those ideas and shared them through the list below.
A home inspection professional is hired to help uncover unsafe and unwanted property conditions. The conditions are reported through a “somewhat” standard format that describes the building and its surroundings. Most fee-paid inspectors don’t use tools to dismantle the equipment. The inspection is visual – none invasive.
Unfortunately, some homeowners think it’s time to relax once the purchase inspection is finished and they move in. However, after the purchase, the building continues to change.
When you hire a repairman or contractor to remodel, the new conditions need an inspection. Annually – all outside components need a periodic inspection. Upkeep is an ongoing job. My goal is to help you learn how to keep your home safe and sound.
One of the most important aspects of homeownership is to remember that homes are local. They are affected by local weather and soil conditions. Local building codes, laws, and techniques govern your home’s construction.
I live and inspect homes in central Mississippi. Some of the content I share will apply to all climate zones and some of the content applies specifically to south-central Mississippi.
Email me or leave comments and questions at the bottom of each page. I’m an active inspector and regularly update the topics below.
