Sherlock Home Inspectors, your home inspectors of choice

New Jersey home inspections keep an eye on water damage. Sometimes water damage is obvious to homeowners, other times it is not. An experienced NJ home inspector knows what signals to look for as well as whether further examination is necessary. Water damage is serious and knowing that it exists, or the propensity for it exists, is essential for any homeowner.

Home buyers deserve to know if a home faces moisture issues. Moisture creates a breeding ground for mold and can undermine the integrity of a home. Your Bergen County home inspector understands that the presence of moisture is not always evident. As a result he will know what clues to look for.

Water leaks go unnoticed under sinks, hidden in cabinets, or behind washing machines and dryers. Water also likes to seep into a home through window and door seals. Of course a hole in a roof is another spot. A basement that is not well sealed is another place where water can pool and wreak havoc. The important thing is to find whether your home has a problem!

When water damage or the presence of moisture is found it does not have to be the end of the world. However, these issues do need to be addressed. The problem is that the issue cannot be addressed if it is not known to exist. Hire a qualified New Jersey home inspector today to ensure that you know the condition of your home.
