Portland Sewer Scope
Nonprofit Home Inspections offers sewer scopes and sewer inspections in Portland, Beaverton, Tigard, Clackamas, Happy Valley and surrounding communities.
Obtaining a sewer scope or sewer inspection in Portland by a licensed plumbing inspector can be one of the most cost effective ways to prevent unnecessary future expenses for a new home owner. The simple fact is that sewer lines break over time, so it’s best to figure out if your new home has a problem with its sewer line before you close your real estate transaction. Repairing a sewer line in Portland can cost up to $15,000 or more, so it’s critical to get a sewer scope or sewer inspection in Portland before closing on your purchase agreement. If there is a problem, you can negotiate with the seller for replacement costs before it becomes solely your problem. Sellers of a property may not even know that they have a problem, so it behoves you to do your own due diligence by having your own sewer inspection done by an unbiased third party like Nonprofit Home Inspections.
Nonprofit Home Inspections is uniquely qualified to give you the most unbiased inspection of your sewer line in Portland. To begin with, as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, we’re not in it for the money. Our only goal is to help you make the most informed decisions possible for the safety and protection of your family. We don’t have any onerous franchise requirements or a for-profit mentality that would cause our inspectors to give you anything but the straight and honest truth.
In addition, we believe that there is a conflict of interest when sewer line inspectors also offer to repair the problems they might find. Purchasing a new home can be extremely stressful and worrisome. While many plumbing contractors are honest, there are also those who take advantage of unsuspecting homeowners by pushing unnecessary pipe repairs during an already stressful time. Because of the obvious conflict of interest in both finding and then immediately offering to fix very expensive problems in your home, we only provide inspection services and do not bid on fixing any problems that we might discover. We will, however, be happy to provide you a list of contractors should your sewer line need repair. As with any of our services, we will never receive a kick back or referral fee for giving referrals.
