Include plumbing in NJ home inspections. As with so many home systems, plumbing materials have changed over time and some systems have issues that can get in the way of a home sale or add a great expense to repairs or remodeling of a home. If you are scheduling a home inspection as a buyer of a home make sure you know exactly what you are getting into, plumbing and all.
A qualified New Jersey home inspector will examine the plumbing of a home and possibly uncover polybutylene pipes. In the last quarter of the 1900s this type of piping was used for plumbing in many homes around the country. Unfortunately polybutylene pipes have been proven to degrade from public water systems. Often these pipes leak, which can wreak havoc on a home. When this type of piping is found in a home a seller can replace them or offer money at closing to take care of the problem.
