Certified Home Inspections advising potential home buyers to insist on damage assessments due to harsh winter.

Certified Home Inspections, the premier provider of home inspection service provider for Long Island, the five boroughs and Westchester, is advising potential home buyers contemplating purchases in the Spring of 2014 to insist on greater diligence from home inspectors to ensure that damage from the harsh winter is identified.

The winter has already blasted the Tri-state region at the very beginning of 2014 and with another polar blast less than three weeks later means that homes will be put under a great deal of stress. The stresses will be seen in cracked foundations, damaged roofs, compromised window and door frames and issues from pipes and other water-carrying equipment. Other issues that could come up with chimneys, electrical systems and basements are also possible. In some cases the damage is easily identified and can be corrected before residual damage can occur. But there are other ways a structure can be damaged due to rough, winter weather that may not be obvious and will not become known until months or years later when the secondary damage begins to occur.

High winds combined with precipitation can force moisture into small crevices and other seams where the continued presence of moisture can lead to rotting timber, deteriorating foundations and warping of roofing that will not become evident until the breaches created are compromised again and again. Perhaps a house had the pipes freeze at certain points during the winter. Large cracks will not go unnoticed bud smaller cracks can be missed by the most trained eye. As these cracks go untreated they become vulnerable points that could rupture and cause household flooding.
