#1 Structural problems
Movement of footings or the foundation slab can result in structural cracking. This is quite a severe problem on account of the costs and challenges involved with fixing it.
#2 Water or drainage problems
When it comes to owning and maintaining a home, water is one of the biggest enemies. The most common problems that surface on properties are caused by inadequate home maintenance and they include water staining, fungal decay, rot and standing water.
#3 Termite activity
Even when there aren’t any active termites found on a property, most houses that are inspected have conditions that encourage termite or wood borer activity. Because of the humid, coastal climate and the love that people have for using wooden features in their home building projects, almost all homes are prone to timber pest and termite attack.
#4 Roofing structure problems
Water damage to the ceilings in a home, or a noticeably sagging roofline, are generally a sign of severe roof problems. Since replacing a roof is an extremely expensive proposition, it’s crucial to hire the services of an experienced building inspector to inspect the roof and ceiling void.
