Aside from structural issues like the condition of a home’s foundation and roof, a home’s electrical, mechanical, and plumbing (EMP) systems can be the difference between a smart home purchase and a lemon you regret buying. It’s not easy to be sure the plumbing and electrical systems are working properly by sight alone.
At FEI, our home inspection services give homeowners peace of mind before they buy (or sell) a house. We offer EMP inspections that help:
- Pinpoint issues
- Address your questions
- Provide you clear direction for next steps
