Don’t ignore those cracks in the walls or that hint of separation between the windows and the house. Structural engineer Dave Vannier says those are the clues that the building is in need of an inspection. Whether selling or buying, an inspection is the one thing that can make or break a deal. Vannier offers tips on what to consider when it comes to having an inspection performed.
In general, a real estate agent may offer recommendations on an inspector, but Vannier encourages people to research them as they would a general physician. It’s the health of the house that’s needed to be looked at.
“The inspector will give all the systems a look over and so he or she will look at the plumbing, electrical, heating and stuff like that, but they will have limited knowledge until they call someone like me with more expertise,” he says.
