Pre Purchase Plumbing Inspections

Over the years, we’ve received numerous calls from clients who recently purchased homes, only to discover unexpected plumbing & roofing issues. Many of these individuals had their properties inspected by general building inspectors tasked with assessing overall structural integrity and general concerns. However, it’s essential to note that hiring a builder to “inspect” your plumbing and roofing can be a common mistake. Plumbing is a specialised trade with intricate variables, and overlooking critical aspects during an inspection can lead to significant future problems. To avoid such risks, we recommend consulting our plumbing inspectors, equipped with the necessary expertise and tools to assess your plumbing thoroughly. Contact us today to schedule a plumbing inspection and gain the peace of mind you need before committing to such a significant investment.

Josh and Matt did a fantastic job in repairing the roof and replacing some downpipes. They were courteous, prompt and professional in their work. I thoroughly recommend ADKO for the services that they provide.

Adam, Dean & Ben (together with their team) have been such a pleasure to deal with and assist us regarding a leaking roof that was causing me serious stress and anxiety. All the men were delightful to deal with and prior to the work commencing, came out and put up a tarp over our roof as it was leaking before work commenced which was just incredible. Very honest and upfront with their quote noting that they were most likely going to be more expensive but the quality of their work, their professionalism and prompt response and service is unmatched. The work was completely within a day by a decent sized group of men which was great. All rubbish was removed and my premises was cleaned before they left. Extremely pleased with their service and workmanship.

A Pre Purchase Is Essential Before Buying A Home Or Investment Property

Making the decision to purchase a new home or investment property is a significant milestone, one that often comes with both excitement and a touch of apprehension. You’ve meticulously scoured the real estate listings, attended countless open houses, and finally, you’ve found the perfect property that aligns with your dreams and financial goals. But before you sign on the dotted line, there’s a crucial step that every savvy buyer should consider: a pre-purchase plumbing inspection.

While general building inspections are essential for assessing the overall condition of a property, they may not provide the comprehensive insight needed to identify potential plumbing issues. Plumbing is a specialized field with its own set of intricacies, and overlooking even minor problems during the buying process can lead to costly repairs down the road.

At ADKO Trade Services, our experienced plumbing inspectors bring a wealth of knowledge and a keen eye for plumbing details to each inspection. They meticulously examine every facet of the plumbing system, leaving no pipe, fixture, or drain unexamined. Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the property’s plumbing condition, highlighting any existing or potential issues.

What To Look Out For Before Purchasing

Identifying the right time for a pre-purchase plumbing inspection is crucial to making a well-informed decision when buying a property. Here are ten signs that indicate it’s time to schedule a pre-purchase plumbing inspection:

Age of the Property

If the property is older, plumbing systems may have aged and could be prone to issues.

Visible Leaks

Any visible water leaks or stains on walls, ceilings, or floors should raise a red flag.

Low Water Pressure

Inadequate water pressure can be a sign of hidden plumbing problems.

Rusty Water

Brown or discolored water can indicate corrosion or rust in the plumbing.

Unpleasant Odours

Foul odours coming from your drains or sewage system could indicate a blockage or problem that requires immediate plumbing intervention.

Water Discoloration

If your tap water is discolored, it may be a sign of rust or contaminants in your pipes, which a plumber can investigate and address.

Bubbling or Gurgling Sounds

Strange noises coming from your plumbing when you run water or flush could indicate air or pressure issues within the pipes.
