Do you have the common issues that many homeowners face as their homes age? Have you felt a draft? Heard a suspicious noise? Felt a soft spot on the floor?
Many costly home repairs start as simple home maintenance projects that go untended. Industry standards suggest an annual home check-up. Just like your car needs tune-ups, your home needs check-ups to stay in good working order. That’s why Boggs Inspection Services offers a Safeguard inspection package.
“Every house should be maintained,” stresses Boggs Inspection Services owner Dwayne Boggs. “Caulking, painting, cutting back brushes – if not, this can lead to defects such as rot on exposed wood. If crawlspace vent screens are not in place, rodents can enter the sub structure causing damage to insulation, water supply lines and the vapor barrier. If there is a leak in the crawlspace this could damage the framing.”
When you bought your home, you made sure a home inspection was part of the buying process. It gave you peace of mind and is required by lenders who want to ensure they are making a sound investment.
Have you considered re-visiting that return on investment and peace of mind, knowing your home is safe, secure and free of damage? Through Safeguard – a comprehensive inspection package that includes sub-structure, interior and exterior check points, as well as an energy use analysis – you can do just that.
Boggs professional inspectors have the skills and training to find places in your home that have undetected damage or could lead to damage down the road.
The Boggs Safeguard inspection also includes an in-home energy analysis from Smart Energy Today, allowing homeowners to explore ways to save money and energy through trusted techniques and the latest technology. Energy inspections include thermostat, filters, fans, lighting and insulation analysis.
“We decided to partner with Smart Energy Today after completing a commercial inspection on a property they were looking to buy,” shares Boggs. “I liked their concepts and the fact that they have very modern ways to help home owners save on heating and cooling costs. And we both agreed an energy audit with the Safeguard inspection would be the way to go.”
For $185, the Safeguard inspection gives homeowners the knowledge they need to move forward with any home repairs uncovered during the process. By finding the exact places minor maintenance may be needed, homeowners are armed with the information needed to ensure prevention of future damage. It’s a small price to pay for the peace of mind and protection of what is, for most people, their most significant investment—their home.
Boggs provides excellent customer service and encourages and empowers home owners to take pride in their investments. It’s recommended to make your own list of concerns when Boggs Inspection Services comes for a Safeguard inspection. The inspectors want to know.
“They explained simple improvements we can make to save us money and future headaches,” said one happy customer, Julie Murray.
An annual check-up is recommended to assess leaky pipes and drains, rodent damage or animal activity, disconnected clothes dryer ducts, damaged insulation, and termites and other wood-destroying pests.
Exterior check-up includes identification of masonry and foundation issues, maintenance issues, and signs of damage to exterior siding such as decay, rot, curling or cracking.
Interior check-ups include state-of-the-art electronic moisture metering which can locate hidden leaks from dishwashers, toilets, tubs and shower surrounds.
