Water Damage Inspections for De Soto

One valuable piece of information we’ve taken to heart from the 25+ years in business since we were founded is that water damage can generate an incredible amount of damage shockingly quickly. That’s why it’s essential to perform a De Soto water damage inspection if your property has recently undergone flooding or plumbing problems. The earlier you find out the exact location and scope of water damage, the sooner you can begin remediation and repairs. 

With our 5-star rated home inspectors, we handle first-rate inspections for residential and commercial properties throughout the De Soto vicinity. We’re grateful to be locally owned and operated in Greater St Louis – we’ve considered this region home ever since we were established back in 1996.

During that time, we’ve assisted countless clients with measuring water damage to their property, whether they’re making a real estate transaction or simply looking to do repair work or maintenance. 

Our inspection team will appraise the following locations: 

  • Attic
  • Basement or crawl space
  • Kitchens and bathrooms
  • Under sinks and plumbing
  • Boiler or hot water tank
  • Walls and ceilings
  • Ducts and furnace 

The exterior of a building is also crucial, so inspectors will review the following:

  • Roof and shingles
  • Gutters, eaves, and soffits
  • Garage
  • Sheds and storage areas

How do inspectors identify water damage? 

  • Wet spots on the ceiling or crown molding: Water stains left on the ceiling can indicate a dripping pipe or a leaky roof.
  • Speckled walls and flaking drywall: Drywall should always be very dry. But when it’s exposed to water, it actually starts to rot and warp in time. Stay vigilant for yellowish marks and discoloration in addition to ribboning wallpaper or paint.
  • Mildew or mold: Mildewy walls can mean that there’s a serious underlying problem. You might have a leaky pipe that’s damaging the drywall and insulation.
  • Distorted floorboards: Bumpy floors could indicate a high level of moisture beneath the floorboards or a problem with the home’s foundation.
  • Rust stains: Rust can be a symptom of exposure to water over a longer period of time.
  • Strange smells: A mildewy odor can signal weak ventilation.

Water damage is a phrase that homeowners find terrifying. Why’s that? Because water can cause a large amount of damage in a short period of time. Additionally, it can lead to mold or even structural damage. This isn’t just very expensive to fix, but will often create health issues in the meanwhile. Castle Home Inspections will determine if water damage is present and measure the damage’s extent. Allow the De Soto water damage inspectors at Castle Home Inspections to carry out a comprehensive investigation of your residential or commercial property.

    Very thorough and professional. Left us with a very detailed report for the house. We worked with Steve and he was very accommodating to us as new homeowners and answered all of our questions. He really helped us learn a lot about the home … More we’re buying.

    They did a very good job got there on time and did a very good in depth inspection and even let us know what is okay to hold off on and what should be a priority even if it did not make it fail the inspection.

    These guys were amazing, they were referred to us by our Lendor who said they were the most thorough and trustworthy in the business. Boy were they right! Jack was extremely professional, while at the same time took his time explaining … More the ins and outs of why each inspection was important, how everyone worked together, what he was looking for, what they found and what to expect with those results. We had many questions, and walked out having learned more than we knew. This was our 1st new house- very exciting and nerve racking at the same time. Having Jack there made the process so simple and comforting. We had follow up questions the next morning and he was easy to reach and when we needed to follow up with more questions with our sewer inspector- the wonderful ladies in Jacks office were so sweet and had the contact information immediately. We are very thankful for Castle Home Inspections and feel so good about our move next week!!
    If you need efficiency, honesty and accountability in your inspection, use Jack and his team- you won't regret it.

    Jack was a great source and wealth of knowledge about a house that has been in my family for generations. Very personable and helpful to my house buying journey. Would always go here for my inspections.

    Had Jack as our inspector. Great business and work ethic overall. He was patient with my husband and I as first time home buyers/owners (we asked SOOO much, sorry Jack!), and made sure we were well informed of every issue. The inspection … More itself was thorough and went above and beyond our expectations. We recommend them and will use their services again in the future if need be!
