Sewer Line Inspection
Very few property owners are aware that they are responsible for the sewer line (sewer lateral) from the building to the city main. Broken, flat, bellied, offset, or root-infested sewer lines can cause sewage to back up into the house leading to extensive property damage. Sewer back-ups can cause thousands of dollars in property damage and loss of valuable operating time for businesses. Although insurance companies will usually pay for cleanup and restoration; repair or replacement of the line is typically excluded, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars.
Standard home inspections do not cover the structural integrity or condition of sewer or septic lines. Having a sewer or septic line inspection prior to purchasing a property is a proactive and innovative approach to make an educated buying decision, plan for upcoming maintenance, budget for necessary repairs, or gain valuable purchase price negotiation.
Home Inspection Specialists were a pleasure to work with. We worked with Shaun who went out of his way to inform us and give us numerous options on how we could approach the mold and mildew problem that we discovered. We strongly recommend them and will use them for future projects. Thanks Shaun!!!Greg P.
