NJ home inspections may reveal the need for specialists. A home inspector will conduct a thorough exam of a home. But when issues arise so may the need for further examination. An experienced New Jersey home inspector knows how to uncover issues.  Part of his job is knowing when to recommend hiring a specialist.


What kind of issues require a specialist? One example is when windows and/or doors won’t close properly. This can mean there are structural issues with a home. This situation would call for a structural engineer. A structural engineer has the ability to examine a home’s foundation and skeleton to determine what issues may exist and what can be done to fix these issues.


Another instance where a specialist would be called upon is when there is evidence of insect damage. Insects, like termites, can do a lot of damage to a home.  A pest control specialist should be called when insects are present. A pest control specialist will determine whether the issue is contained or widespread.  From here he will recommend a method of treatment. There are other cases for specialists to be called upon.

Issues lead to diagnosis

Not every issue a NJ home inspector finds will result in a major issue but it is always better to have a thorough diagnosis to avoid a disaster down the road.
