When you buy a new home have you ever thought about how long the geyser may last before you encounter problems? Probably not!
Your homeowner’s insurance may replace a burst geyser. However, be sure to check if you can claim the cost of repairs or if your home is unlivable due to water damage. Some policies allow you to claim for accommodation for the time it takes for your home to be habitable again.
Most geysers will not give you problems for ten years or more in new houses. Check with the seller how old the house is if you are buying a house. Also, check if the geyser has been replaced and when.
My Comprehensive, Snag (New Home) and Maintenance Inspections include all of the above. Also included is the stand condition, property boundary and courtyard walls, swimming pools, garages, decks and so on. To clarify, an itemised list is provided below.
Your home inspection
Firstly, I am a trained and skilled InterNACHI Certified Home Inspector. Therefore, you will receive a thorough and professional, non-intrusive, visual home inspection and report of the property.
Moreover, I inspect the property you wish me to report on, inside and out, from the boundary walls to the top of the roof. Following that, I draw up a detailed comprehensive report of all the components inspected.
Outside the home, I will inspect the property boundary walls, the garden, the building’s walls and roof, driveway, deck etc. Moreover, if you request it I will inspect your swimming pool. Then I will move inside to inspect the walls, ceilings, floors, doors, and windows. In addition, I also inspect the heating, air-conditioning, plumbing, and electrical systems to ensure that they work as intended. Likewise, bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms also receive a thorough check. Following on, I will check the roof (ceiling) space and basement, if any.
that, I will prepare a detailed home inspection report of all the items
inspected, including photographs. Furthermore, the report will be clear and
easy to read.
Moreover, as The Home Detective, I strive to ensure my home inspectionservices and reports are the best. I value customer service above everything else.

The intention of this article is to inform you, in the interests of your and your family’s safety, what you should and should not see if you happen to stick your head into the ceiling space to check out your hot water geyser. If your geyser installation is significantly different from what is described here, I suggest that you get a reputable plumber to repair it. Check out the videos at the bottom of this article!
