Of all the issues that can arise, most homeowners agree they’d rather not deal with fixing a sewer line.
The condition of the sewer line cannot be determined in the course of a home inspection since specialized training and equipment are required. With proper access, a skilled technician uses a specialized camera to check the portion of the line from the house to the street sewer main. They also inspect any visible portion of the sewer line in the basement of the home.
The most common issues found during a sewer inspection are cracks, clogs, and offset joints. There are a variety of reasons a sewer line could become cracked or clogged, most commonly due to faulty materials and tree root intrusion.
When sewer lines are damaged, repair is imminent. In some cases the fix is relatively simple, and in others it could be costly and complex.
When you select a Sewer Line Inspection, we provide a written report of the findings as well as the video taken from the home to the sewer main.
We also strongly recommend all homeowners purchase sewer line insurance, which can typically be obtained through your sewer service provider.
A typical inspection for a home buyer includes:
- Trim and Eaves
- Basement/Crawl Spaces
- Interior Walls
- Heating and Cooling
- Ventilation System
- Air Quality
