Thinking about buying a home?
One of the most frequently heard myths about buying a new house is that you are moving into a perfect home. This is true in very few cases. In order to understand why this is a myth, you need to know something about the process of building a new home. In the majority of cases, all of the work , which includes the plumbing inspection is almost always subcontracted to whatever company is willing to do it faster and for less money.
This, of course, does not guarantee the highest quality of work. Even though the main contractor is always around, it is impossible for that person or team to keep an eye on every aspect of the construction process. This leaves a lot of room for errors and missteps. And that is one of the main reasons why you need your plumping inspected before you move in – even if your house is brand new.
It is easy to understand why people would be so nonchalant about the issue. New homeowners assume that even if the contractors miss something, the city or town officials will certainly pick up on it. But that’s not the case either. And even if the building inspectors do perform a very thorough evaluation of your new home, there are issues with your plumping that might not necessarily be code violations, but that does not mean that they are not problems that can cost you a lot of money and cause you many problems in the long run.
At the end of the day, moving into a new home without having the plumbing checked out by an independent, expert plumbing service is simply not recommended. Remember, buying a home is all about providing a safe and comfortable place for your family to live. When it comes to protecting your family, there should be no shortcuts taken in the process. Calling in a licensed and experienced plumber to inspect your new home is a smart option. Not only will it ensure the safety and comfort of your family immediately, but it could also save you from many potential problems, repairs, and stress in the future.
