Home Maintenance Inspection

Our homes are our largest investments, and our safe havens, so it’s paramount that we protect our homes by giving them the care and maintenance they require. Learn how a Home Maintenance Inspection by WIN can aid you in your maintenance journey. 

What is Home Maintenance Inspection?

A Home Maintenance Inspection (HMI) examines over 300 components both inside and outside the home. It is recommended that homeowners get their homes inspected once every three years. This service assesses a property’s condition, detects potential issues and outlines preventive maintenance steps owners can take. An average homeowner spends $81,000 on home maintenance repairs during their homeownership tenure, but a Home Maintenance Inspection can save homeowners thousands of dollars by reducing maintenance repair costs to a fraction. 

Why is a Home Maintenance Inspection required?

According to CNBC, 77% of homebuyers face unexpected repair costs in the first year of ownership and these unforeseen repairs can be devastating to one’s savings. A Home Maintenance Inspection can detect these issues early, saving homeowners thousands of dollars and providing them with peace of mind. 

Furthermore, discovering issues early will not only save you money, but can also ensure the health and safety of your home and family. Issues like faulty electrical wiring, cracked pipes, radon and roof damage can create serious health hazards to your family. For example, Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, accounting for 20,000 deaths a year. An HMI can detect issues like these early, keeping your home and family safe.
