For a cozy and safe home
A WETT inspection can give you the peace of mind you need when buying or selling a home, living in a home, and can also be a requirement when securing insurance.
Why Would I Need a WETT Specialty Inspection?
An inspection for the wood burning appliances in your home is important for a number of reasons.
Most importantly, the safety of you and your family!
WETT inspections are now required as a part of the home insuring process.
With wood burning appliances, the potential for harmful pollutants to be released into your home as well as combustible materials to ignite is increased, so it is important that these appliances are regularly inspected and properly maintained.
An inspection will tell you if your wood appliances are operating optimally, are in sound structural condition, and that they burn in a way that does not compromise your health and safety.
What is included in a WETT Inspection?
While a typical home inspection includes a visual inspection of the fireplace, chimney and hearth, a WETT specialty inspection conducted by a certified inspector includes an inspection of all the elements of any wood burning technologies in the home to make sure that they are installed correctly and are installed with compliance to building codes and regulations. It should also include a visit to the roof to examine the chimney for any potential structural or ventilation issues.
