What Is an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection?

Annual home inspections for homes are equivalent to preventative maintenance, which is done to make sure your home is in good shape. An annual home maintenance inspection is a proactive approach that focuses on identifying minor or hidden problems and getting them fixed before they grow bigger. These seemingly minor issues can worsen in no time and can be devastating for your property, family, and hard-earned money. It ensures that all the systems in your home, including the HVAC system, plumbing systems, and security system, are free of potential defects and operating smoothly. It isn’t just great for your bank account; it will also save you a lot of stress and time.

After the maintenance inspection, we’ll provide you with a detailed summary of how well your home is doing, practical recommendations, and useful tips to avoid any future problems. We advise homeowners to get their homes inspected for maintenance at least once every year.

An annual home maintenance inspection covers many common problem areas, including the items listed below.

  • Roof and attic
  • Gutters and downspouts
  • Insulation and ventilation
  • Basement, crawlspace, and foundation
  • Grading and drainage
  • Electrical systems
  • Heating and cooling systems (HVAC)
  • Plumbing systems
  • Water heating systems
  • Windows and doors
  • Driveway and sidewalks
  • Decks, porches, and railings
  • And much more

Why Hire a Home Inspector for Your Maintenance Inspection?

Our home inspectors have years of formal education and practical knowledge, enabling them to have a keen eye toward the smallest issues that you may not be able to identify for years. Problems, if identified early, can be easier to repair and much more affordable. For example, a minor leakage in an underground sewage pipe can go unnoticed until it has weakened your home foundation, structure, and lead to water damage—all of which can lead to expensive repairs and replacements.
