Buying A New Home: Glass Inspection
Posted on April 19th, 2017 by
Buying a new home? Know exactly what to look for? No, we mean exactly what to look for — the answer is probably no. In addition to home inspections and a visual check with your eye, there are a number of things you should be taking into account — especially if this home is for you and you’re on a budget! When it comes to the smaller things, it’s very important to take a look at some of the possible repairs that go along with the fixtures. Glass is a huge factor in this, and it’s imperative that you look at this in all aspects, to know what you’re getting into.
Windows are a huge part of a home, especially because they’re inserted into a wall, and have frames in the construction. Because of this, make sure that you’re inspecting all areas of the windows for seal issues and gaps that might impair your ability to lock in heat and potential moisture during the rainy, cold and hot months. Keep in mind, a home that has old or improperly installed windows will require fixing before it’s perfect, and this can add big bucks to the sales figure of the home.
Believe it or not, a bathroom with glass already installed is not only a luxury, but a financial liability. When inspecting the shower, it’s important to see how well the doors are holding up in terms of age. See if you can turn on the shower and inspect for leaking. This is an indicator of leaks in the shower and repairs that need to be made. In order to combat this issue, make sure you’re checking the bathrooms at home in terms of leaks and assessing how much in repairs you might be looking at.
