What Should Be in Your Yearly Home Inspection Checklist

Yearly home inspections are very important as they are the only way for you to know if everything in your home is working as they should be. But what exactly do you need to check every year? Handyman Connection of San Mateo discusses what should be in your yearly home inspection checklist.

Home Inspection

Roofing and Attic Space

The roof and your attic space should be number one on your checklist; the roof takes bears the brunt of natural wear and tear on your home, so it follows that you should check if your roof shingles are still holding out.

Your attic is another priority as its ventilation is what ensures a healthy roof structure. Attic ventilation also plays a role in ventilating the rest of your home, as well as regulating the comfort levels throughout your property.

AC and Heater

It’s also a good idea to do an in-depth inspection of your HVAC system to see if it needs any maintenance. The last thing you want, after all, is to be endure the summer or winter without the AC or heater respectively. If your heating system starts rumbling or your AC is freezing up, then we recommend you have it looked at.

Check for Signs of Water Damage

Have a look at the walls and ceiling and check if there are any signs of water or moisture damage. If you find any, chances are there’s a leak somewhere – either on the roof or on the walls due to failing plumbing and pipes. When you do find the source of the leak, make sure you address them immediately before they become a more serious problem in the future.
