Pipes, Gutters and Chimneys

 

Your Home Inspector will investigate pipes that are vulnerable to cold weather, even if they are inside your house. Some interior pipes need to be insulated against cold weather. We will locate outdoor water sources and be sure they have been properly turned off and insulated. If your chimney needs cleaning we will advise relative to that too. Having a fire in your fireplace with a creosote filled chimney can be dangerous. Gutters should be checked too. Build up of leaves can dam up the gutter and prevent water from flowing. Any water built up in your gutters can freeze and become heavy, causing them to detach.  Getting your home ready for winter can prevent expensive repairs and replacements.

 

Now Is the Best Time to Winterize Your Home

 

Some people start the winterization process early. But if you haven’t, now is a good time to start. Most of the autumn leaves have fallen and gutters should be cleared. Any leaves that have built up against your house should be cleared too. Pipes should be insulated against the cold, and any outdoor spigots should be closed and insulated. Your Home Inspector will advise of any other possible problem areas before the onset of really cold weather as well. For your peace of mind and prevention of winter related issues in and around hour home, get an inspection. Your Home Inspector LLC is available to perform an inspection of your home.
