Tips for common repairs and a list of items checked by the home inspector.
It's always important to keep filters changed on a regular basis but just before the home inspection is a good idea. If the filter is dirty, many inspectors will recommend servicing the unit.
Check for leaks
Make sure there are no obvious leaks at sinks, showers & tubs, and in the crawl space.
Minor cracks in sheetrock and concrete
Not to hide a serious problem but repairing small cracks in sheetrock or a concrete slab can eliminate unnecessary worry regarding foundation settling.
Downspouts and Basement moisture
Water is one of the most common causes of damage in a home. Make sure all downspouts are connected to the gutter and draining away from the house.
