A home inspection is essential when buying a home. It is a significant part of the real estate transaction, whether you are buying or selling. Although major components are inspected, one important system is often not included – the sewer line.
A typical home inspection doesn’t cover the sewer line as it is buried in the ground. But here at Good Neighbor Home Inspections, we provide an exemplary Buffalo, NY Sewer Scope Inspection to determine the condition of the property’s sewer line and see if the system is properly functioning.
Sewer Scope Inspection is a video inspection of the lateral line (privately-owned pipeline) from the house connecting to the city tap, septic tank, or publicly-owned main sewer line.
A typical single-family residence inspection takes approximately one hour to complete. Our professional will insert a mini video camera into the sewer line and through the cleanout. The cleanout includes the basement, crawlspace, or just outside where the sewer line exits the house. If there are no obstructions found, our professional will inspect the city’s mainline from the cleanout. However, the trouble area’s location and depth will be easily recorded and marked on the ground surface if problems are found.
Common sewer line problems include the following:
All buyers of a new home should call for a Sewer Scope Inspection. Few first-time home buyers consider this service, but this inspection is very important, especially if you buy an older home that’s over 20 years old.
The best time to find out if a sewer line is faulty is before buying the property, not after. Numerous sewer line problems can turn into expensive and seriously troublesome issues.
A Sewer Scope Inspection is critical in identifying and confirming problems in the sewer line. Gone are the days where outdated and heavy exploratory equipment is being used to reveal any piping issues.
