When it comes to buying a new home or place to live, whether it is brand-new or used, a pre purchase plumbing inspection is always necessary. You wouldn’t buy a used car without inspecting it first, so why would buying a home be any different?
Buying a home is a big step for anyone, it is important to not get caught up in the whirlwind of it all and take the time to book in a plumbing inspection quickly. A plumbing inspection can uncover any problems or repairs that are needed, some of which can be easily overlooked or not visible to an unqualified inspector. A plumbing inspection will save you in the long run by detecting water leaks that contribute to an excessive water bill, weakened foundations and mould growth.
Jetset Plumbing specialises in residential or commercial inspections, we want you to be getting the best out of your new home and not silently screwed around by costly water bills or large repairs that could have been averted by a simple inspection. Our plumbers are highly trained and equipped with the best inspection equipment in the plumbing field. We know what to look for, whether it is behind walls or underground with our thermal-imaging camera or in drains with the CCTV camera. We also check water pressure as another way of determining whether there are any leaks or blockages.
Inspections should also cover sinks, bathtubs and showers to check for any leaks or drainage problems as well as anything that is restricting blocked water flow. Toilets are thoroughly checked for any cracks or loose fittings, getting in before more expensive repairs re needed in the future. Our plumbing inspectors will give you the peace of mind that is needed in the exciting yet daunting time that buying a home is – no matter if it is your first or fifth!
Home sellers and real estate agents can sometimes skirt around the idea of plumbing inspections as it can turn potential buyers completely off a house if they find some unsavoury plumbing problems. If you are in the market for a new house, we urge you to carry out an independent inspection from any plumber, so you can purchase the house with as much assurance and confidence as possible.
If any issues are found, you will then be able to take them to the home-owner and negotiate whether they will fix them or if they are willing to adjust their asking price to accommodate for these needed plumbing fixes. Get in touch with Jetset Plumbing Brisbane today to book in your plumbing inspection. We want to ensure that buying your home is as smooth as possible, we can do the hard work, so you can just look forward to your very exciting home purchase!
