As a new homebuyer or seller, residential inspections are just as important as ever in the summer months, maybe even more important than in the winter!

When the weather begins to warm up, moisture and hot summer air come together perfectly to make a breeding ground for all kinds of pests and insects. It is very important to identify these problems before they become a bigger issue, so inspecting the property in question as thoroughly as possible is key to a successful contract. That’s where Grush Inspections comes in.

Key Areas to Focus on for a Summer Inspection:

  1. The A/C unit. Is it level? Free from obstruction? Working? Grush Inspections will take note of all of this and can help provide helpful tips and tricks for storing your A/C unit to prevent deterioration for the upcoming winter months.
  2. Decks. How was the deck kept over winter? Was there quite a bit of moisture trapped, or was it buried all year? Ensuring that the overall structure of the deck is intact and there are proper footings will ensure that your deck won’t ‘sink’ over the course of time.
  3. Rodents and Pest Prevention. Do you see signs of rodents, nests, or other insects? One of the most harmful things that can happen to a home’s structure is the infestation of termites or wood-boring fungus and beetles.

These are just a few key areas Grush Inspections will touch on when performing a residential inspection of your new home, or if you’re in the process of selling your home. Residential inspections can be scheduled for many reasons, but with help from Grush Inspections, we will be able to help you identify costly repairs before they become bigger issues.
