Why A Sewer Inspection Should Be Top Of Your List When Buying A Home
When you buy a new home, an inspection of the foundations, structure and general condition of the property are a necessity, however the sewer lines and plumbing are often neglected. If you buy a new property and the sewer lines have problems, repairs and replacements can be an unexpected costly surprise.
Invasive Tree Roots
One of the main things that causes expensive problems are tree roots. Strong tree roots can force themselves through cracks in pipes. This results in the blocking of the pipes, which if left unattended leads to back up of waste water into your home. Old, outdated pipes are susceptible to this problem. When you are buying a new house a professional sewer camera inspection Chicago will check for the presence of tree roots in your sewer system and will also check how old and in what condition the pipes are.
