Purchasing a condo is a lot like owning a house; instead of relying on building management, it’s up to you to repair and maintain your property. If you aren’t a professional contractor, it can be difficult to know exactly what aspects of your home need attention.
Here are a few reasons that we recommend routine condo inspections:
- Check HVAC System: Professional inspectors know how to spot even subtle signs that there’s something wrong with your heating and cooling system. They will check air vents, heating fans, and all other HVAC equipment to make sure they are in good condition. If there are problems, they will recommend repairs to make your system more energy-efficient.
- Examine Electrical Wiring: Handling electrical wiring can be dangerous in inexperienced hands, which is why it’s always best to get help from professionals. Your inspector will examine the cables to ensure they are up to code and damage-free.
- Evaluate Foundation: The foundation is your condo’s backbone. Any issues with it can affect the rest of your space. Your home inspector will make sure the foundation is sturdy and structurally sound.
