Question
How critical is it to inspect a home for water intrusion?

Inspection is critical, as finding issues early can ward off long term damage.  As water intrusion continues to occur undetected in a particular area, it can accrue to levels substantial enough to cause damage. Early detection of water intrusion is the key to minimizing or preventing such damage.  Damage can be significant if moisture intrusion goes undetected. Damage can become more serious if allowed to continue over time.
