So, what’s involved in an attic or crawl space pre-inspection from Attic Projects?
First, we inspect the attic and crawl spaces to see how air is moving through the home. We’ll check out the ductwork for any leaks, poor installation, or general wear and tear. Have you noticed poor air circulation indoors or higher utility bills? An inspection may reveal if the HVAC system is not functioning properly and working overtime to heat and cool the home – a potentially costly repair if not addressed now. Our crawl space inspectors will then inspect the HVAC system’s functioning from the crawl space, determining if a clean-up or vapor barrier is needed to address any efficiency or moisture issues.
Next, we check out your insulation. You might hear terms such as “R-Value.” Our inspectors will explain the industry jargon and advise whether the insulation is up to standard. We’ll check to see if dirty or contaminated insulation needs removal and if moisture or mold has entered the attic.
Then, our attic and crawl space inspectors look for indicators of wildlife in those closed-off and convenient spaces in your home. Rats and other rodents love making homes in attics and crawl spaces. If a rodent has chewed through wires, or burrowed, and nested in insulation, we’ll know. Before a buyer’s inspector demands a more expensive repair, let our rodent-proofing experts inspect these areas first and seal all the points of entry.
Finally, we inspect the neglected areas of the home. A quick peek into the attic, or crawl space may look like the typical home, but a home inspector may catch serious issues that could cost you the deal. Is there damage to floorboards? Evidence of water, pest, or fire damage? Our inspectors will recommend any necessary remediation. We look for evidence of moisture from the underside of the roof to the insulation under the floor to make sure your home is up to code.
Sell smart! Know what the issues are before you throw money at a problem just to get the contract through.
