Home Pro Of WNY Douglas P. Manzella Inc. is a New York State licensed home inspection company located in Amherst, NY since 1995. Serving Buffalo and all surrounding areas for over 20+ years with residential and commercial inspection services, here are some common issues that arise when performing a property inspection:

Electrical Issues

Inspector Reporting InspectionOften enough, a home may have electrical issues due to improper grounding or older circuit break panels. If your electrical system is old or has an outdated panel, it’s likely that the main disconnect is missing, to include only a multi-throw option. Many municipalities no longer allow a multi-throw disconnect because that requires shutting off more than one breaker in order to completely turn off power in the house. Likewise, inappropriately sized fuses are all a problem that can overload or “double lug” too many circuits to one fuse.

HVAC Issues

At Home Pro Of WNY Douglas P. Manzella Inc., we will inspect your heating and cooling systems. Inefficient systems can be hazardous or malfunction. Make sure your ducts and filters are cleaned or replaced regularly. Your heating system should have its filter cleaned approximately once a month. Regular maintenance on your cooling system is recommended as well. If your HVAC system runs on natural gas, make sure you know where your gas shut off valve is in case you need to close it. If you small gas, you need to immediately evacuate your home, shut off the gas valve (outside), and call to report the leak.Plumbing Fixing Appliance

Plumbing Issues

Upon a home inspection, there are many plumbing problems that may be uncovered. Leaks, clogs or drips are common issues that can be minimized with minor fixes. You need to know where the main water shutoff valve is and how to turn it off. Plumbing appliances such as sinks and toilets should be inspected so you know they are properly functioning. Easy drain maintenance is also recommended. For a full report summarizing our plumbing inspection findings, call our experts today!

Roofing Issues

Roofing problems are often the sneakiest. Leaky roofs lead to rot, mold, warping and more expensive damage. Crawlspaces, flashing and roof surfaces should be regularly inspected for water damage. Gutters and downspouts should be properly working to keep moisture away from your structure. At Home Pro Of WNY Douglas P. Manzella Inc., we know what to look for and where. We are highly trained to inspect your entire property throughout the Greater Buffalo, NY Area.
