Hiring a Professional

Water leaks can have devastating consequences for a home. Mould, rot, and structural damage can result from water getting inside a house, or from leaking fixtures or showers. This is not always obvious – water and can make its way through the smallest of gaps. Common areas where leaks originate include chimneys, windows, around showers, and from pipes in walls. This damage can be hard to spot to an untrained eye. At Town & Country House Inspections, we look very carefully for any signs of water infiltration when we do building inspection in Palmerston North. We do a thorough investigation of the five main areas of the home, including the roof exterior, home exterior, sub-floor, home interior, and roof interior. We offer moisture testing as an added measure to ensure that the home you’re purchasing is dry.
