Kirkwood Water Damage Inspection

One significant fact we’ve learned from the 25+ years in business since our founding is this: water damage can lead to a major degree of damage in a relatively short time. 

That’s why it’s imperative to set up a Kirkwood water damage inspection if your property has recently undergone flooding or plumbing problems. 

The sooner you find out the whereabouts and scope of water damage, the earlier you can take corrective measures. 

With our 5-star rated home inspectors, we handle best-in-class inspection services for homes and businesses throughout Kirkwood. We’re pleased to be locally owned in Greater St Louis – we’ve considered this region home ever since we were first founded in 1996.

Since then, we’ve assisted countless clients with measuring water damage to their property, whether they’re making a real estate purchase or looking to perform maintenance or repair work. 

Our inspectors will appraise the following areas of your property: 

  • Attic
  • Basement
  • Kitchens and bathrooms
  • Plumbing and below sinks
  • Hot water tank or boiler
  • Drywall and ceilings
  • Furnace and ductwork 

The outside of a home is also crucial, so inspectors will look at the following:

  • Shingles and roofline
  • Gutters, soffits, and eaves
  • Garage
  • Free-standing sheds

How do our inspectors uncover water damage? 

  • Watermarks or wet spots on the ceiling: Water marks left on the ceiling point to a cracked pipe or a leaky roof.
  • Speckled walls and flaking drywall: Drywall has to be dry at all times. But when it’s exposed to moisture or water, it can warp and mold. Stay vigilant for yellow-brown stains, as well as stripping wallpaper or paint.
  • Mildew or mold: Mildewy walls can indicate that there’s a major problem. There could be a pipe leak that is affecting your drywall and insulation.
  • Warping floorboards: Warped flooring can be a symptom of excessive moisture underneath your floorboards or a problem with the property’s foundation.
  • Rust stains: Seeing rust can indicate water exposure for some time.
  • Strange smells: A dank smell can indicate weak ventilation among other things. 

Kirkwood’s #1 Water Damage Inspection Company

Water damage is a word that homeowners don’t ever want to hear. Why’s that? Because water can cause a vast amount of damage in a short amount of time. 

Plus, it can also cause mold and structural damage. This isn’t only very expensive to repair, but can also result in health issues in the meanwhile. 

Castle Home Inspections will assist you in ascertaining if water damage is indeed present and gauge the damage’s extent. 

Let the Kirkwood water damage inspectors at Castle Home Inspections handle a thorough assessment of your residential or commercial property.

    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!

    We had our new home inspected by Castle Home Inspections. Steve was our inspector and he did a very thorough and detail job of inspecting the home with a complete written report. I would recommend Castle Home to anyone looking for a home … More inspection.
