Why Sewer Inspection is Crucial When Buying a House

When buying a home, it’s crucial to have it inspected by a professional before sealing the deal. However, while home inspections are thorough, sewers are not usually included. In many cases, a sewer inspection occurs months or years later when a homeowner faces serious problems with their plumbing. 

As an expert in sewer line repair in North Canton, OH, C. Lee Services always recommends an in-depth sewer inspection before purchasing any home. Here’s why”

Sewer Inspections Can Uncover Serious Problems

When purchasing any home, especially one that is more than 20 years old, having the sewer inspected is more important than ever. 20 years is plenty of time for tree roots to make their way into the sewer line and cause damage. If you put off sewer pipe line repair for too long, it might end up compromising the rest of the home’s plumbing system.

Also, houses built between the 1950s and the 1970s have sewer lines constructed from pulp and tar, and they deteriorate over time. Sometimes, the deterioration is bad enough that you will need a complete sewer line replacement.

When you call an expert to perform a sewer inspection, you will learn if there are any serious problems that require immediate attention. If they find issues, you can decide if the home is still worth buying.

They Help You Plan for the Repairs

If you discovered problems but still want to purchase the home, you can plan for the repairs. For example, if the sewer line is due for a replacement, you can research the cost of sewer installation and either negotiate with the seller to reduce the price of the property or come up with the necessary funds to make the repair yourself.

If you are considering purchasing a home in the immediate area, you can contact C. Lee Services to perform a sewer inspection and let you know of any issues that may be present. We will discuss every detail of our findings and recommend the sewer repair services that suit your needs.
