Even here in the south, Cookeville Tennessee has seen devastating winter snow...destructive spring wind...extreme summer heat take their toll. Sorry, I'm not talking about you. I'm talking about your home or the one you plan to buy.

If you aren't a construction or building trades pro, you probably don't know all the places to look or what to try to see. If you are buying a home, the home inspection fee is one of your most valuable expenditures. If you want to know more about your current home, use either a home inspector or an professional experienced in the specific area that concerns you. The worst case scenerio is finding and repairing a problem that could cause more damage with time. The best case would be paying for a report that says that you and your property are in good shape. In my book, that is money well spent.
