An Electrical Inspection will ensure that your home’s wiring and other electrical components are in good working order and do not pose a safety hazard to you and your loved ones!
Having electrical inspections regularly and meeting electrical safety requirements, will help reduce the chances of disasters occurring, such as a fire due to loose electrical connections, overloading circuits, incorrect wiring, etc.
A detailed electrical inspection is not included in Pre-Purchase Building Inspections or Building Defects Inspections…electrical inspections must be conducted by a licensed electrician and most building inspectors are not licensed electricians…our licensed Master Inspectors are also licensed electricians!
An electrical inspection prior to buying your home is important to identify any dangerous electrical issues that may be very expensive to repair once the property has been purchased. An electrical inspection can also help you negotiate a lower price if faults are found.
