Decks & Patios
An area of a Home Inspection that is often overlooked, is the outdoor space of the home. This includes decks, patios, and entertainment space. Decks, especially those that are elevated off of the 2nd floor, require a detailed inspection just as much as the interior structure. Structural integrity, safety, code compliance, and condition must be fully assessed to pass inspection.
ROCKHALL INSPECTION SERVICES provides a fully detailed evaluation of all decks, patios, railings, and staircases. Every component is inspected for dry rot, integrity, proper placement, and overall safety. Decks pose a risk with load bearing and proper footings involved. Also, railing heights, staircase riser distances, and CO's all must be in full compliance. This is not only for your safety, but also to satisfy any legal issues that may delay the closing process. It is absolutely essential that every detail is in order to ensure that the entire process moves along smoothly and without delay. Also, it puts the liability on the seller, to take care of any issue that will prevent the home from passing inspection.
When a home has a brick patio, there are several issues that could arise. Aside from basic condition of the patio, other things must be investigated, such as sinking bricks, tripping hazards, and overall grade of the patio space to ensure run-off or rain water drains away from the house. These are all things that must be addressed prior to closing, to make sure the seller takes care of the issue and you're not stuck with a headache. Trust ROCKHALL to perform the inspection with precision and a critical eye.
