Because Heartland Building Inspections do not repair any plumbing systems you can be assured that when we televise your sewer lateral that we are not looking for a reason to dig up the line just so we can make money by selling a repair job, but when is a defect in the sewer lateral line is found, we can locate the defect so it can be repaired. Whether your home is new construction or a hundred years old, We at Heartland Building Inspections recommends that a sewer lateral video inspection be performed on any home that is being purchased or has had drainage issues. Very few first-time home buyers ask for a sewer inspection before buying a home. Sewer inspections are not something most buyers think about. They know to get a home inspection, but sewer lines are almost an after thought, if it crosses a buyer’s mind at all. Yet it’s one of the most important inspections a buyer of older homes should conduct. The time to find out if a sewer is faulty or needs replacement is before buying a home, not after the fact. I recommend to all my buyers that they obtain a sewer inspection if the home is older than 20 years. Although the sewer line may be fairly new as compared to homes built before 1950, for example, tree roots can still clog a 20-year-old sewer line. Tree roots growing into sewer lines is a common problem. Roots crawl into tiny openings and expand in the sewer line, latching on to other debris that typically cause backups such as grease or eggshell waste. Sometimes chemicals can kill the trees roots but if the roots reappear, the pipe may be damaged and require excavation to fix the problem.
We have a variety of cameras to inspect many different pipe sizes from 3 inch to 6 inch. Scoping inspections are ideal for pipes located under driveways, sidewalks or buildings. Let us give you a clear view of the problem before you invest time and money in expensive excavation services. We also have the equipment to locate any areas where the sewer line needs repair.
