Wherever you are right now or whichever city you want to settle down, there are, and will always be, general home issues and problems that a home inspection can bring to light. Salt Lake City is one of those communities you want to settle in. Home to over 200,000 locals, Salt Lake City residents and tourists enjoy the good balance of nature and entertainment sites. Salt Lake City, UT also experiences all four seasons and is the second driest state next to Nevada. 

Salt Lake City is definitely a good place to live. This is the reason why many folks who only come to visit end up staying. Demands of housing are constantly on the rise. However, as with every home there is, residents of this 110.4 square miles city also experience these 7 common problems that our home inspection in Salt Lake City, UT brings to light.

  1. Plumbing- leaking, exposed, and outdated pipes
  2. Electrical – ungrounded outlets, and improperly wired breaker boxes – all of which are safety hazards
  3. Heating – leaking in heating units
  4. Drainage – poorly installed drainage system. One of the common signs of drainage issues is a wet basement. 
  5. Roofing problems – this includes torn and cracked shingles, and poorly installed flashing.
  6. Walls – gaps and cracks in walls
  7. Fungal timber decay or dry rot

Other than that, there are two home inspection myths that we also put an end to. First, the assumption that new homes are flawless. Unfortunately, no home is perfect. Second, a home inspection is not needed if buying a home warranty. The problem is, home warranties rarely cover everything so it’s always the best idea to have a home inspection conducted before closing.

All these affect the convenience, safety, and health of homeowners. This is why at Bent Nail Inspections, we don’t just look around or offer what we have. We provide exemplary Salt Lake City, UT home inspection services because we want you to get what you really paid for.

  3. Home Sellers Inspection – One advantage of a home seller’s inspection is that sellers get to see their property through the eyes of an unbiased, neutral, and critical third party. This way, you can price your home realistically and make repairs ahead of time before buyers and agents start touring around the property. Moreover, you are confident with your property which also relieves potential buyers’ concerns and suspicions.
