Sewer Scope Inspections
Don’t overlook one of the most commonly ignored – yet most important – parts of inspecting a home; the plumbing drain system.
A defective sewer line can be one of the most expensive fixes a home owner might come across. Repairing a defective sewer line generally costs between $250-$300 per foot and repairing or replacing an entire sewer line can easily run into multiple thousands of dollars. That is why getting a sewer scope inspection is essential. A sewer scope inspection reveals the condition of the lateral sewer line. Sewer scope inspections are not included in a standard home inspection, but are just as salient.
