Finally making the move to a new home? Getting your first, or just next, home is an exciting time, but the shine can quickly be taken off the exciting experience when there’s something wrong with your new home. It’s easy to miss small details like structural problems or health issues when you’re doing your own inspections of a new home, but they often don’t take long before they start rearing their ugly heads and causing you a real headache. Get ahead of the curve with a building inspection to see what secrets are hiding behind the walls before you make the decision to commit, we’ll help you find a place that you’ll love and will be safe and secure for you.
Foundation and Supports
The foundations and supports of your home are arguably the most important part, when something fails in the main structure of your home then it can put the entire building at risk of collapse. An inspection of the foundations is a quick way to give you peace of mind that you and your family are safe and secure. Our inspectors can take a look at the foundations and main structure of the home you’re looking at to see how safe it will be for you, we can then give you a report with recommendations as to whether its safe and if there are any actions that you will need to take to ensure that it is.
How annoying is it when there’s a light switch in your new home or apartment that doesn’t do anything, or a light that doesn’t work even with a new bulb put in? These can seem like simple problems but they can lead to a serious fault. Electrical issues like poorly installed or exposed wiring can not only cause you headaches getting things to work in your home, but can also lead to a fire hazard. If there are any electrical issues in your home, our inspectors will quickly sniff them out and have a report prepared for an electrician to repair if you choose to continue with the purchase.
The interior and exterior surfaces of your home don’t just dictate how nice your house looks, they can also control the safety and comfort of it. If there are any exposed areas in the exterior you can be joined with unwanted houseguests like rodents, insects and other pests, and the interiors can have things like mold or asbestos hiding behind them. Be sure that you’re buying a safe and comfortable home free of issues by organizing a home inspection by Grand Rapids Home Inspections, our team will be sure to find any issues inside or outside of your home.

Annual inspections help to ensure that there aren’t any issues that could put your investment at risk and help to keep the value of your home raising instead of the opposite.
