Outer Banks homes face unique weather conditions including high humidity in the summer and prolonged wind blowing rain in the winter and the occasional hurricane. Due to these harsh conditions Outer Banks homes require special building materials and techniques. It is important to hire a home inspector who knows local these techniques and materials. Hiring a home inspector who has either built homes for a living here in the past or has been employed by a local municipality as a building inspector is a good idea.
When purchasing an older property it could be to your advantage to hire an inspector with a NC building contractor’s license. Occasionally an insurance carrier will want a letter stating the condition of older systems within a house. If your home insepctor has a contractor’s license then they can often quickly and easily provide you with that letter.
