The Top 5 Most Common Issues You Find In A Home Warranty Inspection


 
 

1. Bad Roof, Bad Roof, Bad Roof, BAD ROOF!

Whether you got your money’s worth or not, trying to fix or
“improve” your own roof WILL end up costing you more in the
long run. If you are not a professional roofer, it’s best to find one.
The number one reason for roof damage is poor installation,
followed by extreme weather conditions and poor maintenance.

2. HVAC Problems

Ever noticed how when you set your thermostat at the perfect
temperature, your HVAC unit will automatically turn on and of
again to keep your house at those cozy 72 degrees? But what
happens when your thermostat is set at 72 but the room feels like
42? Or what’s worse, 102? This can easily relate an issue with
your HVAC differentials and air pressure imbalance.
Other factors that may cause HVAC problems are:
Lack of maintenance
Dirty filters
Pilot or ignition problems
Mechanical wear and tear
Blown fuses or tripped breakers
Dirty condenser or evaporator coils
Unusual furnace noises

3. Caulking Issues

There are certain things on your property that do not require a
professional to fix, like patching up a surface using caulk.
However, make sure you take the necessary steps to ensure its
done right. Caulking issues will happen due to impurities such as
dust, dirt, moisture and others still on the surface you are trying
to patch up, preventing the caulk from sealing appropriately.
Other factors that can cause caulking issues are using poor
quality caulk, improper application of caulk, and the caulk ageing.

4. Plumbing or drain leaks from 2nd floor 

bathrooms

This is a common issue with properties that have multiple floors.
The most common problem in leaks are typically caused by
defects or breaks in the seals, connector joints not being tightly
joined, or faulty drainpipes. Taking care of leaky ceilings are of the
essence. Postponing such an issue can cause greater damage to
your property in the long run.

5. Poor Workmanship

Home buyers often tend to prefer a newly constructed home
because of the assumption that being brand new must mean that
it’s better. Thousands of inspections later though, and the fact is
that poor workmanship can easily affect new homes as easily as
older ones. Issues caused by poor workmanship include:
Cracks in the foundation
Plumbing
Molding
Damaged electrical wire
Corrosion
