For the last few months I have focused on the key systems in the home and the potential defects in each of those systems that are most commonly found in an inspection that need correcting. The goal of this series was to help sellers, realtors, buyers and current owners keep the home in its peak operating condition.
As a reminder the key systems are Roofing, Exterior, Garage, HVAC, Electrical, Plumbing, Structural, Insulation/Attic and Interior. For the final blog entry today I will cover the Interior.
Bathrooms – Make sure your toilets are secure to the floor, not leaking and don’t continue to run.
Caulking – Caulk around tubs, showers and sinks are one of the first things to wear in a home. It is cheap to update and should be kept up to keep water from seeping into the walls around these areas.
Windows – Interior windows need to be able to open and close to prevent an egress limitation in any bedrooms. This is a safety hazard if they don’t open and will be called out in a report.
Floors/Walls/Ceilings – Stains, wear and deterioration of these areas should be corrected. If you had a past leak and repaired it but haven’t repaired the damage it did it will look like the problem still exists. Paint and repair these areas.
