During our inspection, we look for specific clues, details, signs, which tell us that there is an issue at play or that in the future there are going to be issues.

Some issues are pretty benign, but if left unnoticed they will worsen and potentially cause damage to your house. This is where we come in. 

For example, a buried oil tank may not appear as an issue, but as time has passes corrosion will slowly damage it and potentially allow it to leak oil into the ground, which can turn out to be a real environmental issue. A leaky buried oil tank can become a very expensive and quite difficult problem to solve, especially if there is possibility that ground water is contaminated. In this situation, we will recommend that the owner removes the tank before your purchase the house.

                                                               

                                                           Have a look, and be confident that we will leave nothing to chance.
