In various Metro Atlanta communities like Roswell, Marietta, Kennesaw, Woodstock, Canton or Alpharetta, homes range in age from new home construction to thirty to fifty years old. Many older homes have been updated but the original construction features like foundations, the roofing structure, insulation, duct work for heat and air systems, electrical wiring and plumbing are original to the home and may not only be in need of repair but may need updating or even replacement.
In many homes in Georgia and especially in many of the foreclosed properties for sale that have been empty for months and sometimes years, inspecting for mildew and mold and testing for Radon emissions and air quality is also a recommended part of the home inspection process.
As with most aspects of buying a home the home inspection is a necessary part of the process. It can forewarn you of potential issues and down the road repair costs, and give you relative peace of mind in knowing that the home you are about to purchase is in good physical condition and needs only your personal touch to transform it into your home.
