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 purchasing a new home and wanted a professional inspection prior to closing. We chose Crown because they did the inspection on the home we sold and did an excellent job for the new owner. The inspector provided an explanation to … More us of anything that may need attention and sent the recommendations with pictures very quickly. We highly recommend Crown Home Inspections.

    Travis conducted a home inspection for my buyer client in Lee’s Summit and I am very pleased. This was my first time hiring Crown Home Inspections. He was professional, courteous, and personable despite it was over 104 degrees outside on … More a Friday afternoon! The inspection was thorough and he communicated with me throughout the process. Since my client was in CA, he zoomed with her at the end to provide a summary and answer her questions. The report gave both the client and myself a great understanding of the home. I will hire Crown again to conduct my inspections.
