How Often Should Your Home be Inspected by an NJ Home Inspector?

When you think of a home inspection, you think of either buying or selling a home. Since Home Inspections are typically contingencies on closing documents, your only run-in with a home inspector was probably when buying your home. A home is similar to a car in the sense that, over time, parts will fail. Unlike a car, you cannot drive your home down to the mechanic to take a look at what’s wrong. Hiring a contractor for home repairs can set you back thousands of dollars easily. However, unlike a car, issues with homes are typically predictable and preventable if noticed in time. That’s when home inspectors come in!

Home Inspections Reveal The Condition of A Home

Simply put, a home inspector examines the condition of your home inside and out. This includes vital parts such as the HVAC system and water heater to the foundation and roof. Since these parts are the most likely to fail due to age and natural wear and tear, it is important to inspect on a regular basis rather than just during the purchasing process.

Why You Should Consider Annual or Bi-Annual Home Inspections

According to BusinessWire, 32% of American homeowners have less than $1,000 set aside in the event of a home repair emergency. Something as simple as a water heater can set you back up to $3,000! Unlike other home repairs, parts such as a water heater are vital to your home and your wellbeing.  Hiring a home inspector can not only help you avoid potential catastrophic issues with your home but also prepare you to deal with them. Each home inspection includes a detailed checklist grading the condition of almost all aspects of your home. This allows the homeowner to begin planning for repairs long before they’re necessary!
