Why Should I have a septic system inspected?

Septic systems can fail catastrophically, and in some cases, raw sewage can back up into the home.  Owners and tenants sometimes have to relocate for days or weeks while the system is being repaired.  Raw sewage is not only a sanitary issue but can cause lasting odors, stains, water damage, and health concerns.

What is a Septic Inspection with Pump?

Septic Inspections with a pump help homebuyers identify issues with private on-site wastewater systems or homes with septic systems. 

A Septic Inspection with Pump includes:

  • Tank Location
  • Excavating to the tank (up to 2.5′)
  • Opening and pumping the tank empty (both compartments, if possible)
  • Inspection of the tank and, if applicable, distribution box
  • Verification that wastewater arrives at tank and exits into drain lines
  • Covering the tank
  • PDF/HTML inspection report

About Builder Buddy Inspections & Testing

Builder Buddy is an Asheville-based inspection and testing company – our specialty is education, and our mission is to help people buy, sell and maintain their homes.  Builder Buddy is known for inspections and testing of all kinds in and around Asheville and Western North Carolina. We have three home inspectors on staff and an office manager ready to take your call.  We are licensed and insured and used state-of-the-art inspection and CRM software.

Why are we different from other home inspection companies?

Thorough and knowledgeable Home Inspectors

We spend more time on-site, writing reports, and following up with our clients than our competitors. Our highly trained state-certified inspectors have been chosen for their construction experience, professionalism, communication, and passion for learning.  Our home inspectors are full-time W2 employees (not subcontractors). They are trained extensively for one year within the company (even after licensing) and then continue with regular reviews and advanced training above and beyond state requirements to ensure all of our inspections and testing are performed to a consistent and high level of quality.

Relevant, timely, and intuitive Inspection Reports

We always deliver our inspection reports the same or the next day.  We know how to communicate the difference between cosmetic items and expensive repairs.  We strive to bring important information forward in our reports and presentations– especially regarding safety, structural issues, water damage, and other expensive repairs or maintenance items.  Our color-coded HTML reports include additional diagrams, blogs, explainer videos, and more to help our clients understand our findings better.  

Highly responsive

Our full-time office manager, three home inspectors, 24/7 online help desk, and CRM software are here to help.  We pride ourselves on communicating before, during, and after the inspections.  We will remain available to you until all your questions are answered.  We are happy to set up video or phone calls after the inspection for clients that have more questions or were unable to be present at the inspection.

We focus on Education.

Our passion is education, and our mission is to help people buy, sell and maintain homes in WNC and beyond.  We have over 200 articles, videos, and other resources to help our buyers before, during, and after a home inspection.
