Every home typically has some form of a deck or patio. Often times, Home Inspectors overlook these areas and sign off on them as satisfactory. Proper inspection of decks and patios is much more complex than visual inspection. There are various factors involved such as town code for railings and fences, permits or CO's, integrity, and much more. These components are not only extremely important to properly purchase the home without issue, but also for the safety of you and your family.
The Home Inspectors at Investment Inspection are continually educated and extremely knowledgeable in all of the town codes and building requirements. They know exactly what was done correctly and in compliance, and what issues may cause some legal delays in your home buying process. Further more, our skilled inspectors are trained to find any kind of structural issue there may be with decks or patios, especially elevated ones.
Our inspectors not only know to look for the compliance and integrity side of things, but they also know to look for any safety hazards. Are the steps wide enough? Do they have enough height on the risers? Are there any loose boards, stonework, or railings? Is there any signs of rot or termite damage? These are all things that our certified Home Inspectors keep a sharp eye out for. These issues may also open yourself up to liabilities as potential for injuries or trip hazards for any guests you may have over. Protect yourself by staying ahead of the curve and by knowing what you're getting into before you close the deal.
Our Home Inspectors truly do care and take pride in knowing all of the specific challenges related to home buying on Long Island. That is why it is vitally important to have someone on your side, looking out for you. Keep yourself in the advantage seat by having Investment Inspection find all the issues to be addressed prior to closing. Have these items fixed by the seller and not by you!
