Do I Need a Home Inspection?

Professional Wisconsin Inspectors Look for Hidden House Problems

Many people often ask us, why do I need a home inspection? The answer is simple – to uncover any hidden problems in the house before they become expensive nightmares to repair. New home buyers in particular need to arrange for home inspections before moving in. When you find a home you’re excited about, it’s often easy to begin picturing how your furniture is going to fit. What you don’t imagine is where mold might be hiding or if the house has high radon levels. While you’re planning how you want to decorate, hire a licensed and qualified home inspector from Wall to Wall Home Inspections to examine the rest of the house to ensure you’re not stuck with any unwanted surprises after you move in.

Inspections for New Home Buyers

Buying a new home is incredibly stressful. Professional inspections provide you peace of mind by checking all aspects of the home for you. Things like the roof/gutters/chimney systems, basement/attic, moisture issues, and all the electrical and plumbing systems are important to know before committing to a purchase. Yet these probably aren’t on the forefront of your mind as you’re focusing on the number of bedrooms or commute times.

Our home inspection services typically cover:

  • Flooring
  • Foundations
  • Siding and Soffit/Fascia
  • Gutters and Downspouts
  • Building Materials
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical
  • Roofing
  • Wall and Ceilings
  • Garage
  • Attics and Crawl Spaces

Our inspectors use their years of experience and extensive knowledge of home construction to check and identify any problems that could end up costing you a lot of money to repair, ensuring you get a fair price for the home. Pair your inspection with our radon testing.

Pre-Sale Home Inspections

In the state of Wisconsin, home inspections are not legally required when selling a house. When listing your house you might have to provide a disclosure, also known as a Real Estate Property Condition Report. The report discloses any issue your home might have to prospective buyers. If you want to provide the buyer with more evidence of the condition, our pre-sale inspection will give you all the accurate information you need. A benefit of getting a pre-sale home inspection early in the selling process is you can adjust the price, or make needed repairs.

We inspect all styles of homes, including:

  • Single-family homes
  • Multi-family homes
  • Townhomes
  • Duplexes
  • Condos

Rental Property Inspections in Wisconsin

Condos

Do you rent out a single-family home, duplex, condo, apartment, or multi-family home? You need to protect yourself from tenants with rental home inspections. Before tenants move in, your inspectors can provide a full report which accurately reflects the state of the building. Once they move out, another inspection can be compared to this report to show whether the tenants did any damage.

Are Home Inspections Worth the Cost?

During a typical home inspection, our licensed and certified team of professionals usually finds anywhere from five to ten items that need repairs. If you are in the process of buying a house and an inspection reveals issues, the price of the home may be adjusted by the seller to compensate for the cost of repairs or a Right-to-Cure agreement means the seller has to handle the repairs before you move in. The price to repair is often higher than the fee you pay for a home inspection. You can either pay a little bit now or end up paying a lot more later.

Annual home inspections can help you get ahead of potential problems before they grow out of control.
