Even a well-kept home can have problems underground, and during home inspections, New Jersey home buyers often find long-term issues. Sewer line blockages, breaks and intrusions by tree roots may not be evident except to a trained inspector, and they can be expensive to repair. Evidence of sewer blockages can also give inspectors clues about past damage within the home. At All Jersey Home Inspection, we can check for problems directly with video sewer line inspections of homes in the Middlesex County, NJ, area.
Costs And Consequences Of Sewer Line Problems
A sewer line problem can result in these and other issues — and may already be causing them:
- Sewage backups
- Foul odors
- Slow sink draining
- Foundation cracks
- Rodent and insect problems
It takes information and experience for a home inspector to identify the range of problems that may be arising from sewer line blockages and damage. We can inspect your line directly, and our staff can translate what they see into what it means for you, the home buyer.
The Home Inspection New Jersey Properties Need
Sewer lines can contain long-term build-up from flushed materials, cracks from tree root invasion and other damage and blockages. It can be costly to dig down and make repairs, but the cost of not doing so can be even higher. The video sewer line inspection provides a clear picture of any problems and their exact location so you can carefully target any digging required. If the camera runs cleanly to the municipal connection without picking up anything, the inspection provides peace of mind.
