Why do you need a home inspection. To protect yourself from hidden defects, poorly maintained systems and components, safety issues and questionable construction techniques. That could leave you with an expensive money pit!
Even new homes and homes built as little as five years ago can have hidden problems that even the seller is not aware of. Or components the contractor just didn’t build, install or complete properly. Examples of these are; roof flashings not properly installed or missing, incomplete exterior finishing, electrical issues, decks not built to safe standards, undersized heating and cooling systems. Just to name a few. Of course, the older the home is. The greater chance there is of finding material defects. Systems that need maintenance or repair, safety hazards, or even home owner repairs that were poorly done, etc. As a home buyer; you at least need to be aware of repairs and maintenance items that are needed in order to make sure your new home is and will remain safe, comfortable and in the best possible condition. Most importantly; if there is a major problem such as a foundation or structural issue which is discovered during the inspection you’ll have an opportunity to back out; if some kind of resolution can’t be reached with the seller.
