Get A Vanguard Plumbing Inspection Before You Buy A Home!
As the Northwest Side of Chicago’s #1 rated residential service plumber with more than 500 five star online reviews from satisfied homeowners, Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer knows a thing or two about the importance of a plumbing inspection for potential homebuyers everywhere – including throughout our Northwest Side service area.
In the grand scheme of things during the often hectic homebuying process why would a plumbing inspection of the property in question matter? It’s a question we hear all the time and it has several revealing answers too. Don’t worry, we’re going to go through each of them below for your benefit.
You can also call (773) 633-6139 to talk directly with one of our plumbers about the home you’re considering and schedule a plumbing inspection at a time that’s right for you – including video plumbing inspections of your pipes and lines. Now on to the reasons to call in the first place:
Reason #1: Your Home Inspector Can’t See the Sewer Line
While home inspectors are great and do a valuable service for potential homeowners, there’s quite a bit that’s outside the scope of their service – including plumbing inspections. They’ll give you an honest assessment of the home’s quality and condition but only of what they can actually see and review. So for a home’s sewer line the only way to know for sure if there are issues is with a plumbing inspection from Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer.
Reason #2: Home Inspections Don’t Look Inside the Walls
Any home that you’re considering buying on Chicago’s Northwest Side is going to have a pipe system hidden behind walls or in crawlspaces. Home inspections often can’t get to these so you’re going to be buying blind without a detailed plumbing inspection before you finalize the paperwork. Vanguard’s RIDGID® high-definition video camera inspection technology can give you a clear view of a hidden plumbing system long before you’re responsible for repairing any issues we find.
Reason #3: Unknown Slow-Leaking Plumbing Fixtures
It might surprise you to learn that Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer’s licensed plumbing professionals often find small leaks at the base of toilets and sinks we’re repairing. Many times these issues are unrelated to the reason we were called out so it goes to show how frequently these small leaks happen with no one the wiser. While these leaking fixtures may not be an imminent threat to the home they are causing damage every second they go unnoticed and that could be a problem for you after you buy. Thankfully a Northwest Side plumbing inspection from Vanguard can find all the leaks fast!
Reason #4: Get Facts About the Home’s Water Quality
One thing a home inspection definitely doesn’t cover is the water quality in the home. All the home inspector cares about is if the water runs – not if it’s so brown it can’t be used. That’s why you need a plumbing inspection from Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer. We’ll check the water quality and answer all your questions about what our findings would mean for you and your family should you buy. We can also help you choose the right water filtration system and install it at a great price on the Northwest Side!
Reason #5: The Biggest Reason of All – the Hot Water Heater
Just as with water quality, a home inspector will usually check a hot water heater is functional if it is present at all but they’re not going to go into detail about its operation or its condition. For that, you need an experienced hot water heater installation plumber – like those from Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer. Our Northwest Side plumbing inspections take full stock of the hot water heater so you get detailed information from the plumbers who know hot water heaters best. And that can save you thousands of dollars down the line!
