Whether you plan on staying in your current home for five years or 20 years, taking steps to maintain the value of your home is a must. A home is a huge investment, but one of the great things about that investment is that—with care, maintenance and perhaps even a few updates or renovations—it can retain or even exceed the value for which you first bought it. From keeping the home clean to repainting and re-carpeting, all the way to landscaping the front yard in such a way that maximises curb appeal, there are many, many steps you can take to keep your home in great shape.
Annual Building and Pest Inspections in Scarborough
One step that you should absolutely take to protect the value of your home is to schedule annual building and pest inspections. At 360 Building & Pest Inspections, we provide these services, making it easy for you to you to identify the kinds of structural problems or vermin infestations that have the potential to torpedo the resale value of your property.
Most people have their home inspected upon or prior to purchase. At 360, for instance, many of our jobs are pre-purchase building and best inspections in Scarborough. These inspections are smart, obviously: you want to make sure the house you are purchasing won’t have a bunch of costly deferred maintenance waiting for you when you move in. However, these pre-purchase inspections will ideally be just the beginning of your relationship with a professional building inspector—not the be all, end all of that relationship.
Why should you schedule annual building and pest inspections in Scarborough? First of all, doing so will give you a better chance of catching issues early on, before they develop into major, major repairs. With annual inspections, for instance, you have a better chance of catching a termite infestation in its infancy and nipping it in the bud, rather than discovering it after the damage already amounts to tens of thousands of dollars. Since most homeowner’s insurance policies don’t include coverage for damage caused by termites or other vermin, this particular reason should be motivation enough to schedule annual appointments with 360 Building & Pest Inspections.
