Buying a house can be a time of great anxiety and stress. Whether this is your first home or you have been down this road before, it is perhaps the single largest investment you will ever make. Unfortunately, most people know very little about all of the eight major component systems that make up a home. These systems include plumbing, electricity, structure, heating and air conditioning, kitchen, exterior, interior and the basement. A certified home inspector from North Country Home Inspections evaluates over 400 items in a home and alerts you to what might otherwise be unknown major problems.
