Merriam KS Water Damage Inspection

One critical piece of information we’ve taken to heart from the 17+ years in business since we were founded is that water damage can lead to a huge degree of damage in a short timeframe. That’s why it’s so important to perform a Merriam KS water damage inspection if your property has recently fallen prey to flooding or major plumbing problems. The speedier you confirm the exact whereabouts and degree of water damage, the earlier you can start remediation. 

At Crown Home Inspections, we conduct first-class inspections for homes and commercial properties throughout the Merriam KS vicinity. We take pride in being locally based in Greater Kansas City – we’ve considered this area home since we opened our doors back in 2003.

Since then, we’ve assisted many clients with assessing their property’s water damage, whether they’re purchasing real estate or pursuing maintenance or repair work. 

Our inspection crew will appraise these locations: 

  • Attic
  • Basement
  • Kitchens and bathrooms
  • Plumbing and under sinks
  • Hot water tank or boiler
  • Walls and ceilings
  • Heater and ducts 

The outside of a home is also essential, so inspectors will investigate the following:

  • Shingles and roof
  • Gutters and eaves
  • Garage
  • Sheds and storage areas

How Do Inspectors Find Water Damage? 

  • Watermarks on the ceiling: Water marks left on the ceiling are symptoms of drippy pipes or a leaky roof.
  • Stained walls and cracking drywall: The drywall has to be as dry as possible. But when it’s exposed to moisture, it can begin to warp and deteriorate in time. Stay vigilant for brown or yellow discoloration and stains in addition to stripping paint.
  • Mildew: Mold on walls can indicate that there’s a serious underlying issue. You may have a leaky pipe that’s that’s damaging the drywall and insulation.
  • Distorted floors: Warped flooring can be a symptom of an excess of moisture below your floorboards or a problem with the home’s foundation.
  • Rust stains: Sting rust stains can be a symptom of moisture exposure for a longer period of time.
  • Strange smells: A musky odor can be a sign of poor ventilation.

    We are big fans of the Crown Home Inspections! We know that when our clients choose to use them, their report will be thorough and explained in a digestible manner. Something that makes Crown extra special is that they take the time to … More print off a copy of their report on site. This helps us to ensure our clients are hearing all the intricate details in person during the summary so they don’t come up later when they review on their own, without the inspectors explanation. On top of this, they are prompt, professional, friendly and orchestrate additional inspections to help everything run smoothly. Highly recommend!
