For one, think about why a home is even built - to keep us from the elements. And the elements are rarely harsher than they are in the winter time. The cold moves and stresses things, the snow add weight and moisture, animals and pests try there hardest to get in. In reality, if you want to test your fortress walls, wait until it is under siege - and that is exactly what happens in the winter time!
So if you are thinking of getting a home inspection, consider having it done this time of year. And of course, feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help!
