Technical inspection in Zaandam

Having a technical inspection in Zaandam is sometimes considered questionable despite the fact that it can be important when buying a home. Especially since buying a home in Zaandam involves a large financial responsibility. By having a structural inspection performed, you know what to expect from the technical condition of the home and the possible costs involved. HuisAssist tells you more about the execution of an architectural inspection in Zaandam.

What is a technical inspection?

A technical inspection in Zaandam is also referred to as a structural or building inspection. This inspection provides insight into the technical condition of the house. Because the inspection should be performed by an independent party you can be sure that you receive an objective architectural report.

What is a technical inspection?

The building report produced as a result of the inspection not only provides an overview of the condition of the house but also gives an indication of possible costs. Think of costs that can be expected in both the short and long term for maintenance and renovation. Below are a number of points that are included in the architectural report.

Technical defects

During the building inspection, the inspector will look at the status of the entire house. This includes looking at possible defects. Think of leaks in the roof, the foundation of the house or mold that has affected the walls or floor. This way you will know what you need to replace or repair after the purchase of the house in Zaandam.

Cost of possible repair

When the inspection finds parts in need of repair or extra service, an indication of the costs will be given. This way you will not only know which parts need to be replaced or repaired but you will also have an idea what the additional costs will be. This cost indication can be important when considering buying a house.


Are you interested in sustainability or do you want to reduce your monthly costs? Then a technical inspection is also a good idea. During the inspection we also look at the sustainability of a house, the following components are important:

  • Windows
  • Wall insulation
  • Wall insulation
  • Floor insulation

After the structural inspection, you will have a better idea of the current sustainability of the house and know which parts can be made more sustainable.
