Why would anyone think of Home Inspection Service in connection with being ready for summer? Well, if you are hoping to buy or sell a home in the Highland Lakes District area this summer, the answer is obvious. But would a home inspection be a wise idea for anyone else?

Are you having out of town guests? Will people be coming over for barbecues or outdoor summer celebrations? Are you even considering a “staycation,” enjoying the beauty and comfort of your own home this summer?

If so, you want to know you have done your best to protect that beauty and comfort. You don’t want unexpected plumbing episodes to ruin a family visit. You don’t want to wait until the temperature is in the 90s and higher to learn your air conditioning should have been looked at in the spring. And you sure don’t want a refrigerator or freezer to fail because you weren’t aware that your electrical system wasn’t up to handling a peak summer load.

If you’ve ever been in the situation where you didn’t remember until it rained that you had “meant to” have the roof inspected during the dry season, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Be wise, and don’t go into the summer wondering or hoping that no major repairs are lurking in your future. You can have all the information you need to budget maintenance, in time to avoid costly repairs. And of course that’s where we come in.

A Howson home inspection is designed to give you, the homeowner, all the information you need to continue to make the wisest decisions about your home. Don’t wait and kick yourself when the plumber hands you an unexpected bill. Stay informed, and stay on top of the true condition of your home. We’ll let you know in plain talk what we find, so you can take control of what needs to be handled and not worry about what still has years of service left.

And if the day comes when you decide to put your home on the market, you can know that you have done everything to keep its value high. And of course, you can count on us to serve you at that time.

But right now, as you prepare for summer, give us a call and put your mind at ease. Your home can be the best place in the world to spend the season, because you took the steps to make sure it would be.
