Old houses are great. London has a number of beautiful heritage homes, and the Victorian-era charm they offer can’t be beaten.
That said, when you buy an old house, you may end up with a world of frustration.
See, back in 1889, when that house was built, they didn’t think about things like Wi-Fi and cell phone signals, electrical usage, or plumbing.
And while it’s possible to update these things, it can sometimes be tricky.
So what do you do?
When Do You Need A Plumbing Inspector?
If you’re planning on buying a home, especially an older home, it helps to hire a plumbing inspector. You and the inspector can do a walkthrough of the home, where your inspector will take detailed notes on the state of the plumbing in your potential new house and present them to you in a report. This will give you a clear idea of what you’ll need to do as far as upgrades go, and how much they’ll cost.
You may also need to make a report to your insurance company in order to receive a more accurate home insurance quote.
If you’re planning a larger project, too, having a plumbing inspector come by to look at your property and assess the situation can give you a better idea of any problems you may face.
Finally, it’s a good idea to have regular plumbing inspections of your property. This way, if there are any issues, you’ll catch them in their early stages.
Some of the things we’ll inspect include:
- Plumbing fixtures (toilet, faucets, tubs/showers)
- Hot water heater
- Supply lines
- Drains & sewer lines
- Exposed pipe in the basement/crawlspace
- Pipe internals
- Appliances (laundry, dishwasher, water filter)
- Backwater valve & sump pump
- Water pressure
