Sewer Scope Inspections From Local Experts
When buying a home or commercial property, it’s easy to focus on what’s visually accessible. However, the most significant problems are often out of sight. Piping and sewers are great examples of this. You might not notice water leaks or issues with toilets and sinks. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t damage beneath the surface that can cost thousands of dollars to repair.
For peace of mind, turn to Pinnacle Property Inspection Services—the Chicago area’s trusted, family-owned inspection company. We have extensive experience providing sewer inspection for business and home purchases and can provide you with all the information you need to ensure you’re making a sound investment.
Why is Sewer Scoping Important?
Sewer scoping is an inexpensive way to detect potentially costly problems. A sewer scope inspection expert from Pinnacle will insert a specialized camera into your sewer line from within the home, enabling a full view up to the main line at the street. This will ensure the portion of the sewer that you will be responsible for is free from:
- Tree root invasion
- Pipe cracking
- Pipe collapse
- Pipe sagging (belly)
- Offset pipes
- Excessive grease buildup
Most of these issues are costly and time-consuming to repair, requiring days of work from specialized contractors. As such, a sewer scope inspection will provide one of the most important pieces of information you need before purchasing a property.
