Signs Of Plumbing Problems In Your New Home

Most people realize that no home is perfect. When you are in the market for a home, it might be helpful to take into consideration the potential for problems and to evaluate them logically rather than be disappointed about them. Some problems can be alleviated easily and some are more worrisome. Read on for more information about spotting the signs of plumbing problems in a home and how to handle it.

Home Inspections

When you find the home you love, you should make it a high priority to hire a home inspector. These professional problem-spotters are skilled in breaking your home down into its major systems and viewing each one in depth. One of the most important home systems is one few people notice but is indispensable – the plumbing system. Problems with plumbing don't have to necessarily be deal breakers. If a home inspection turns up problems or you notice some of the below red flags, you should get an estimate of repairs from a professional plumber. If the homeowner agrees to lower the price of the home due to the plumbing issue, you might be able to have the repair completed before you move in.

Signs to Watch Out For

Water damageThere can be several causes of water damage. You might have a leaking roof, rotted wood around doors and windows, water intrusion from the ground, and a leak somewhere due to a plumbing problem. The signs of water damage are usually easy to detect:

  • Bubbling of painted walls
  • Discoloration of painted walls
  • Warping of flooring
  • White stains on wooden floors

When it comes to plumbing issues, water damage may be a sign of a leaking pipe. Plumbers can use water-detection devices to locate and repair the leaking pipe.

Stained ceilingsAs you view a home, be sure to look up. Ceilings that have brown-stained areas or brown spots may be signs of a leaking pipe.

MoldWalls and floors that have been affected by dampness for a period of time can cause mold growth. Not only must the cause of the moisture be identified, but the mold should be eradicated by a professional. Mold can be extremely dangerous and should be treated with care and speed.

Slow drains – You might not realize the need to flush and use all the faucets, but you can tell a lot by those actions. If you notice unusual noises or a delay, you might have a clog in the drain. While the problem might be attributed to low water pressure, slow flushing could indicate a major problem with the main pipe that leads out to the street.

Make sure you know what you are getting into when you encounter plumbing problems by consulting with a plumbing services professional before you purchase your new home.
