Why Do Annual Inspections?
There are several reasons to perform annual inspections whether you are a homeowner, cabin owner, or property owner. Annual home inspections allow property owners to stay on top of repairs, while annual property inspections allow investors to maintain their properties, ensuring they are in good condition for their renters. Two main reasons to do annual inspections are:
Preventative maintenance: A property inspection company can check for evidence of roof leaks, appliance breakdowns, HVAC system issues, termites, and more!
Safety hazards: Checking for properly working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors, along with clogged air filters can prevent liability issues and increase overall safety.
