Buying a home can be a very exciting yet stressful process. First of all, it is a massive purchase, probably the biggest of your life. Even after you have completed the entire loan approval process and accepted a quote for the house of your dreams, you are still in danger. The inspection can be one of the most important parts. This process is your first line of defense against buying a house that has hidden problems. Sadly, many inspectors ignore the sewer inspection. This service can benefit you in the long run but does come with some extra costs. You are putting in hundreds of thousands of dollars into this home so let’s make sure you get what you are paying for.

Sewer Inspection and How It Works

When you hire Marvel Sewer and Drain to perform a sewer inspection at your home, a plumbing professional will employ a high-tech sewer camera. This will allow us to see what’s really going on inside your pipes.

Root Detection and Root Damage

Our main concerns when it comes to tree root damage are interruptions and cracks in the drainage pipe, excessive buildup of chunky debris, and tree roots that grow into the pipeline creating cracks and holes. If you have these issues, this is a huge red flag.

Negotiating Power

If these things are detected during a sewage inspection, you may have second thoughts. Finding these issues gives you, the buyer, an upper hand on the seller. Share the results with them and negotiate a lower price on your new home. Either they pay for the damages, or you buy your dream home at a lower cost.
