Everyone knows that before you purchase a home, it is important and necessary to have the home inspected. But did you know that you should be getting a home maintenance inspection on a regular basis to keep up with the demands that come with home ownership? That’s right, there is great value in an annual home maintenance inspection. JMark Inspections is here to talk about home maintenance inspections and why they are so important.
What is a Preventive Home Maintenance Inspection?
There isn’t a big difference between a home maintenance inspection and the home inspection you would have done if you were selling or buying a home. The only difference is, that you would have the inspection done without the intention of selling it in the end. Once the inspection is complete, you will get a detailed report of all the findings and systems in your home just like you would with a seller inspection. The only difference is, that when there are things that should be fixed, you are the one that would fix them rather than the owner of the home you are trying to purchase.
Reasons to Get a Home Maintenance Inspection
The inspector will walk through every aspect of your home and check all systems with a fine toothed comb. They have the experience and the expertise to catch small things that could lead to problems down the road. They may notice that there is some uneven wear with something or that appliances like water heaters and furnaces are reaching the end of their life. It is helpful to walk through your home with the inspector so that they can explain things to you while they are doing their job. They may be able to answer any questions you have about your home and how the different systems work. They will also be able to lead you through the process of properly maintaining your home and its systems as well as appliances. You will find that when you have a home maintenance inspection completed on your home, you will get an unbiased opinion on what repairs should be made on your home.

A home maintenance inspection isn’t something that needs to be done on a yearly basis. It is helpful for homeowners to know how their house is operating though, and so it is recommended that a home maintenance inspection should be completed about every 3-5 years.
