As home inspectors, we are trained to look for problems with your potential new home so that you don’t have to worry about whether or not you’ve bought a problem house. There are so many things that you have to think about as it is, like finding a home in a good area, making sure it will fit the family’s needs and wants, and making sure all of this is within budget.
Something many home buyers are unaware of is the importance of having the correct amount of grading (or slope) around the property. Why is this so important? What is the appropriate amount? This brief, but informative video will help you to have a good idea of what proper grading is and why so essential.
Remember, we are here to assist you with all these issues so that you don’t have to feel overwhelmed with everything you need to know. Please contact us with any questions you many have, or if you would like to schedule your home inspection. We are happy to help.
