Buying a home is a huge investment, and you should ensure you’re doing it right by learning its overall condition first. A complete home inspection can save you unforeseen headaches by allowing you to learn about minor and major issues with a home before buying it. It will also uncover potentially life-threatening defects such as mold or faulty wiring that could easily cause a significant fire and other dangers.

A sewer scope is an inspection of a home’s drain lines by using a camera. This inspection checks for any blockages, broken sewer pipes, or other issues that can’t be seen without digging up the yard. Homes built between 1945 and 1972 could have Orangeburg pipes, also known as black pipes. These pipes are made of hot pitch and wood pulp. Furthermore, homes built before the 1970s might have cast-iron pipes. These pipes are known to cause structural issues so a sewer scope inspection could help identify these hidden issues.
If a seller agrees to replace or repair damaged areas of the home based on our initial Inspection, we recommend you have a re-inspection. A re-inspection will ensure that the work completed was done properly.
