Assessing the Structural Integrity of Your Home

Inspectors checking out the structural integrity of a building.Structural integrity is a key component of safety for any commercial building or home. Consider for a moment that the architect, contractor, or engineer who designed the property did not account for some crucial condition or need. A classic story of failed structural integrity tells of an architect who designed and built a library. The building was beautiful, but each year it sank a few inches due to the weight of the books. The architect had accounted for everything except the books, a crucial aspect and need of the property. Eventually, it was knocked down and had to be rebuilt, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars.

 

While your home may not have thousands of books weighing it down, its structural integrity may not be as strong as a seller claims. The current owner may not realize that the requirements or loads of the structure have changed, especially if the home has been in the family for many years. Perhaps additions have been built without proper guidance.

 

Structural integrity is the ability of a home to maintain its structure over time, not bending, breaking, or collapsing. A lot more is known about materials and their respective strengths today than was known 20, 50, or 100 years ago. Experts can assess the current state of a foundation, load-bearing beams, and other home framework components. It’s possible that the wood or metal used to support your home has been flexing and becoming more stressed and vulnerable.

 

A test of structural integrity assures that catastrophic failure does not occur, leading to injury, damage, monetary loss, or even death. Ultimately, your family is your number one priority. Safeguarding them by inspecting the structural integrity and other home conditions is the best way to gain peace of mind and preserve your investment.

Commercial Property Inspections: What to Expect When They’re Inspecting

Commercial property inspections in process.Commercial property inspections typically occur during the closing of a sale, just as home inspections do, when a buyer may require an assessment prior to completing the deal. After all, whether you are investing in a movie theater, office building, or strip mall, you want to be sure that your investment is sound from floor to ceiling and that the materials and air is free from harmful pollutants. Sellers should want to ensure commercial property inspections are done, too because the prior occupants or patrons of the building may have been affected. Not to mention that until the real estate changes hands, it is the seller’s investment to protect.

 

You might be more familiar with a home inspection which includes aspects like foundation, electrical, roofing and plumbing – all of which are still part of commercial property inspections. What factors differ in commercial property inspections? Two additional inspection areas include parking and fire safety (exits, stairwells, sprinklers, etc.). But, there may be more areas to have inspected: elevators, furnaces, pools, carpets (for bedbugs), etc.

 

Inspectors may hire additional experts for commercial property inspections that have unique needs or needs that cannot be covered without expertise, such as contractors or electrical engineers.

 

Commercial property inspections also involve a review of documents concerning building history, permits, environmental studies, floor and construction plans, maintenance, citations, appraisals, and certificates of occupancy (when applicable).

 

In the end, a property’s overall condition is determined. It may be necessary to make costly repairs or do nothing at all. Commercial property inspections produce a report with all of the findings, so all parties are aware of the condition prior to selling your home. In some cases, the seller is required to pay for the necessary changes first. In others, a discount on the purchase price of the estate is given to the buyer in the amount of the cost of repair so the buyer can handle the repairs at no further cost.

 

If you are in the process of a buying or selling a property, Inspect-It 1st! An agent can meet with you face to face to address any specific concerns you have as a buyer, seller, or even current owner seeking commercial property inspections. Inspectors are skilled at dealing with large structures in which multiple party communication is essential. That way, everything goes smoothly, concerns are laid to rest, and the property can continue to thrive, no matter what the next chapter may be!

Hazard Insurance FAQs

Hazard insurance needed for a burning home.When unforeseen natural disasters and events wreak havoc on your home, hazard insurance may help repair the house and recuperate other losses. That way, you can help your family find peace and safety once again.

  • What is Hazard Insurance?

Specific natural hazards, which can potentially damage or destroy your home, are covered by varying forms of hazard insurance. A few of these include fire, earthquakes, flooding, wind, and vandalism. Depending on the location of your home, some of these will be more relevant than others. For instance, a homeowner in Kansas may need tornado insurance while a homeowner in Florida might opt for hurricane coverage. Of course, you could choose to pay for a hazard insurance plan that includes every natural hazard known to man, but it probably will not be financially practical.

  • How is Hazard Insurance Different From Homeowner’s Insurance?

Hazard insurance and homeowner’s insurance are often used synonymously in conversation. However, depending on your insurance broker, they may be quite different. If your broker uses the term “comprehensive” to describe your homeowner’s insurance, you should check to make sure that it covers the specific hazards common to your location or that you are concerned about prior to signing a contract. In addition, truly comprehensive insurance should cover both liability and physical damages while hazard insurance generally covers only physical property damage.

  • When Should I Get Hazard Insurance?

During a property’s closing sale, the buyer is typically required to obtain hazard insurance of some kind, the terminology of which may change later to property or comprehensive homeowner’s insurance. The name may not matter, but the details do! Be sure to read thoroughly and understand what you are signing off on prior to agreeing.

 

  • How Much Should my Hazard Insurance Cover and What Will it Cost?

It’s strongly encouraged to buy enough hazard insurance to cover (at least) the cost of the mortgage. That way, if something happens immediately after the sale, the buyer is protected enough to cover the full restoration of the home. Costs are calculated from the estimated value of the property, age, construction, and known hazards in the area.

 

Securing hazard insurance is just one more step in the buying process. Much like getting your home inspected, hazard insurance can give you peace of mind that your family and investment will be safe. If you are moving somewhere new and need any inspection services (foundation, termites, plumbing, radon testing. etc.) simply Inspect-It 1st!

 

If you aren’t currently buying or selling but think you might want an inspection done, Inspect-It 1st provides great resources to get you started.

Holiday Safety Tips for Your Household

Don’t let the hustle and bustle of holiday madness result in a dangerous environment for your family; instead, keep these holiday safety tips in mind!

Mother and two sons enjoying  the season and following holiday safety tips.

 

Holiday Safety Tips for Kids:

Vigilance is key when it comes to practicing proper holiday safety tips for any younger members of the family.

  • Decorate with kids in mind. Place breakable ornaments and sharp hooks higher on your tree. Also keep other decorations with smaller parts out of their reach. Kids are curious!
  • Electronic toys are great, but they often come with batteries that can be harmful to small children. Stay vigilant and consider removing the batteries when the toy is not being played with. Other toys or decorations may include magnets, which are equally harmful and should be removed.
  • Decorating is a great holiday tradition, but certain holiday plants are poisonous to humans (and pets). Keep the following out of reach: mistletoe, holly berries, and Jerusalem cherries.
  • Engage older children in cooking. Use the opportunity to teach all children kitchen rules and precautions.
  • Remove wrapping paper and bow remnants promptly after gifts have been opened, as these can be a choking hazard to small children. Also avoid allowing balloons to deflate for this same reason.

 

Holiday Safety Tips for Pets:

Like kids, pets are curious and holiday safety tips are just as important for these four-legged family members.

  • When pets are allowed to wander into the hectic comings and goings of family, it’s easy to lose track of them. Keep them safe by picking up anything close to the ground that might be harmful, like Poinsettias and the other poisonous plants mentioned above.
  • Sweet treats are one of the greatest parts of Christmas, but they should never be given to pets and should be kept out of their reach. Chocolate is especially dangerous to dogs.

 

Holiday Safety Tips for the Whole Family:

Whether you are traveling or preparing your own home to be a gathering place for friends and family, remember these general holiday safety tips.

  • Water your tree regularly to prevent dry needles from piling up on the floor and being consumed by young kids or pets. They are also a fire hazard.
  • Keep open flames (candles, fireplace) under close watch and away from flammable objects (tree, garland, blankets, etc.). Always extinguish when leaving the house or going to bed. In addition, keep foreign objects such as wrapping paper or disposable dinnerware out of the fireplace.
  • Check light strands for fraying, broken sockets, etc.
  • If you are traveling, check the car prior to your journey. Do the tires have good tread depth? Are the car seats secure? Is the oil and windshield wiper fluid full?
  • When traveling, passengers may get restless (especially younger ones). It’s beneficial to everyone to take occasional breaks to stretch their legs, get food and use the bathroom.
  • Never hang electric lights on a metallic tree or fasten them to walls with metal tacks or nails.
  • Create a list of emergency numbers for any emergency that might arise, no matter who is home. This is especially handy and a stress-reliever for parents leaving children in the hands of family from out of town or a baby sitter.

It’s never clearer than during the holidays that family comes first, and that’s why following these holiday safety tips are important! Keep these safety tips in mind and create a safer environment for everyone.

Don’t stop with these holiday safety tips. Follow through and have your house inspected for any less apparent safety issues prior to visits from your family. Inspect It 1st can check your house for serious health threats like Radon or aging house problems such as plumbing leaks or heating malfunctions.

7 Tips for Staging a Home in the Winter

Staging a home for the winter.The winter months are typically a time for settling down in front of a warm fireplace with your family gathered around, passing a plate of brightly frosted cookies. However, it can also be a time for staging a home to sell. After all, if you have plans to move after the holiday season, you can’t stop showing your home to potential buyers.

 

While you may think that staging a home during the winter months is more challenging given a hectic schedule or the dreary grey world outside, there are ways to make your home shine and sparkle with a holiday cheer that will work in your advantage. In fact, many buyers will be able to picture themselves in front of that warm fireplace with family – if you are staging a home correctly to capture the magic and character of the season.

 

 

Here are seven tips to make staging a home in the winter more successful:

  1. The Path to Perfection – Keep in mind that guests won’t be pulling into your garage. If there is snow on the ground, the first step to staging a home is to shovel the driveway and/or a path to the front door. Also check for ice, as traffic over the snow can easily pack down and melt the snow into a dangerous walkway. Sprinkle sand or salt over the path to reduce this risk. In addition, place a mat or two at the front door to limit the spread of snow and muck into the house.
  2. Let There Be Light – If you are staging a home for the evening, turn on the porch lights and enough light inside to be welcoming – that means at least one light in every room. Did you put up a Christmas tree or garland? Turn those lights on. However, the less personal the decorations the better. And if you are staging a home in the day, do away with fake lighting and opt for natural. Just open the window drapes or blinds and let the sunshine in, and only turn on lights where the natural light does not reach. Light also helps a space seem larger.
  3. “Brr” Be Gone – Even if it’s not snowing outside, it’s sure to be chilly. Keep your house warm enough to render a coat unnecessary. A few degrees warmer will keep the heater from kicking on (which could be noisy) and help convince the buyers to linger inside longer. If you have a fireplace, make sure it’s lit for warmth as well as charm.
  4. Eye Candy – Eye candy can start with a festive wreath on the door or twinkling lights outside. Inside, consider staging a home with decorations in the most lived spaces. The living room may have a Christmas tree or stockings hung on the fireplace. Add folded throws or blankets over the arms of couches. Place poinsettias or other holiday plants in the room. The kitchen table might be set with clean dinnerware over a tablecloth or placemats.
  5. Dial Down the Scents – Candles are appropriate to the season but can often be overwhelming. If you light candles, consider the scentless kind and instead bake or cook prior to visiting buyers. Most people would much rather smell chocolate chip cookies than overpowering floral waves.
  6. Set the Mood – Music can be appropriate for this time of year, but keep in mind that not every guest enjoys the same type of music. Try to choose music that is more classic or instrumental, and turn it down to a barely noticeable level that will accent the mood.
  7. Provide Specifics – When staging a home, set out a small card or piece of paper with a list of items of features that you want to highlight in the house. This step is especially helpful in the winter when something like a back porch and jacuzzi might be covered and hidden.

Staging a home is a crucial step in the selling process, enabling you to move onto your next residence and also transition the new family in. These are big decisions for you and those closest to you, and that’s why you should Inspect-It 1st before moving in. Have your new house tested and examined by the experts to ensure that it’s a safe environment. Inspect It 1st offers services to check heating, plumbing, electrical, ventilation, foundation, and everything else that will keep your new home running beautifully!

Buyer’s Checklist: Spa and Pool Inspection

Floatation device in a pool ready for pool inspection.

Buying a new property is exciting, but don’t be wowed by the inclusion of a pool and forget the pool inspection! A poorly maintained pool or spa can not only suggest a poorly cared for home, it can also mean thousands of dollars in repair or reconstruction costs to make the property safe and functional for your family. Don’t get hosed by a lack of knowledge; instead, have some conditions and warning signs to look for going into the home buying process and then consider a pool inspection before signing the paperwork.

 

 

 

Before taking the plunge into a house purchase that includes a backyard pool or spa, there are important points to consider:

  1. Asset or Burden? – The first question to ask is if you will utilize a swimming pool. If not, don’t settle for a house in which you’ll have to care for one, or worse yet, pay for upkeep. You might think a swimming pool is an automatic asset as a buyer, but don’t be fooled. In warm climates, a pool might add a 10% resale value to a home, but that’s not true of everywhere! The winter weather in midwestern states, for instance, can damage and deteriorate a pool each year. Maintenance and pool inspection expenses can rack up to between $50-100 per month, even in good weather conditions. The water itself costs, along with heating, chemical balance, water filtration, liability, and mechanical problems that may arise in a pool inspection. In addition, every few years, a pool should be resurfaced. All in all, a pool can amount to an extra few thousand dollars each year for homeowners.
  2. Is the pool or spa up-to-date? – Hoses, pumps, liners, ladders, railing, slides, steps, diving boards – all of these may have cracks, safety concerns, or be in another state of disrepair. Only a pool inspection technician can fully investigate what may require repair and replacement. Even certain external pool conditions such as nearby outlets should be checked for proper circuit-interrupter devices that are missing from older pools. A lack of pool inspection services on pumps and heaters could result in electrocution.
  3. Proper Fencing – Erecting and maintaining proper fencing is critical to your family and guest safety, not to mention the neighborhood (if you have an open backyard). There are codes and local requirements for height and gate closing so as to prevent potential mishaps.
  4. Filling a Pool In – If you love a house but the pool inspection came up with a few thousand dollars in repair costs, you might consider filling it in. But this, too, can be extremely expensive. Quotes for larger pools have been up to $20,000.

Ultimately, deciding to buy a house with a pre-existing pool or spa comes down to money and time. A buyer must weigh the potential use and eventual resale value against repair, upkeep, and pool inspection costs. How do the sides measure out? It might end up being more beneficial to search for an equally lovable home and avoid pools altogether. But if you are considering taking the dive into a house investment, Inspect It 1st offers quality pool inspection services to give you all of the facts and figures for an informed decision.

Series on Safety: Termite Infestation

Termites easting away at a piece of wood. What:

There are five common types of termite: dampwood, drywood, conehead, formosan, and subterranean. All of these types of termite consume cellulose-based material, a material that exists to some degree in and around every home in the form of dead plant, wood, and cellulose bits in soil. A termite may only be a single centimeter in length but can cause considerable and costly damage, especially because where there is one, there are always others.

 

Where:

A home foundation is not the only place to find a termite, though it may potentially cause the most danger and damage. Termites also feed on furniture, books, shelves, and antiques (such as sleds or wooden plaques).

 

Drywood termites are the stereotypical kind of termite that often comes to mind to represent the little pest. It is the kind that lives within the wood it consumes, infesting walls and furniture in colonies.

 

Signs:

Often called the “silent destroyer,” a termite can threaten the home without leaving any obvious signs of damage. However, wood that sounds hollow when tapped may indicate a problem. Additionally, watch for “discarded” wings, droppings, and mud tubes on exterior walls and crawl spaces.

 

When a colony is matured, winged “swarming termites” may be visible around windows and doors. They are most active in springtime, which is when they typically mate and spread to other locations to start new colonies.

 

Prevention Steps:

  1. Eliminate moisture problems such as leaks, blocked gutters and vents, standing water, etc.
  2. Seal pipe and utility line entrance points.
  3. Keep firewood away from house foundation.
  4. Check fences and wooden decks for damage.
  5. Keep any wood on and around your home from directly contacting the soil.

 

Treatment:

Contact a trusted expert like Inspect It 1st to investigate. If termites are found, further spray treatment may be needed.

 

A termite problem is detrimental to health as well as safety, but they are not the only pest or concern that may be hiding in a home. Whether you are selling and want to ensure that your house is safe for the next family or you are buying and want to make sure your investment is sound, Inspect It 1st! Take a look at the various inspection services offered by Inspect It 1st and allow the experts to build your peace of mind surrounding termite pests and other potential issues.

Fall Cleaning Checklist

Home exterior in fall - fall cleaning checklist in action.A chilly breeze is in the air, and soon, the falling leaves will be in motion – circling around the pumpkins that decorate your neighborhood. Trick-or-treaters are coming to knock at the front door. You might even be making arrangements for family to visit you over the coming holiday season. All of these signal one thing – winter is coming!

Are you prepared for fall cleaning? Sure, spring is the better-known season for all of those up-to-your elbows chores, but fall should also be a time for deep cleaning – to prepare a comfortable house to retreat into, surrounded in the warmth of family and friends. Not to mention that a lack of preparation for winter or procrastinating your fall cleaning to-dos can result in long-term damages to your home and yard.

So put down the Halloween candy and wrap yourself up in this essential fall cleaning checklist:

  1. Check caulking around windows. This will enhance insulation and cut down on your electric bill!
  2. Have your carpet professionally cleaned early in the month of October when weather is still warm and the professional cleaning companies are not yet busy.
  3. Fall cleaning wouldn’t be complete without flushing out the gutters after the leaves have fallen. Build-up can create ice dams and prevent proper drainage, roof leaks, etc.
  4. Clean or buy a humidifier (depending on how dry your home gets in the winter).
  5. Remove patio furniture, grills, and children’s toys from the outdoors. Fall cleaning means storing all of your summer possessions in the garage or storage room.
  6. Re-organize kitchen cabinets to prepare for those big family meals!
  7. Check external and garage doors. Is the weather strip crumbling away from age? Does it seal tightly? Fix any issues that might reduce energy efficiency as part of your fall cleaning routine.
  8. Inspect and clean out chimneys, fireplaces and furnaces.
  9. Launder all bedding (including the musty stuff you never use in the closets). Turn over your mattresses.

Don’t let winter sneak up on you. Be ready for guests and the season’s harsher climate by marking fall cleaning chores off of our handy checklist. And if you get on a roll, try conquering other tasks from our general maintenance checklist. Staying on top of these tasks keep your home comfortable, your family happy, and your property value high in case a time comes when you want to sell! Interested in buying or selling now? Consult Inspect-it 1st to see if your house needs any safety updates or improvements.

Fall Pet Safety Tips

Smiling dog is an example of pet safety. Buying or selling a house aren’t the only reasons to get a safety inspection; sometimes you just want to ensure your family is living in a healthy environment and that means investing in pet safety as well as human safety! After all, our four-legged companions are our furry best friends and they rely on responsible, aware owners to give them a full, happy life. Not to mention that pet safety very closely coincides with overall living safety for humans too! Think that dust, mold, or a crumbling foundation are any less dangerous for animals? Think again.

Here are some household tips for pet safety that you may want to give extra attention when cleaning, moving somewhere new, or just enjoying the fall weather and upcoming holidays:

  1. Reduce allergies. You might be susceptible to outdoor pollens and even your own pet’s dander, but did you know that they can be susceptible to allergens too? If you see your pet itching more often or developing a rash, that just might be the case.
    • Outside: To increase human and pet safety, be sure to rake away those fallen leaves and mow the grass and hedges down to counter any possible nature irritants to your pet and you!
    • Inside: Brush your cat or dog twice to three times per week as they shed their summer coats to make room for winter ones. Otherwise, that hair will get all over your carpet, clothes, and furniture – not healthy and definitely not welcoming to guests.
  2. Beware of pests. Fall is a season for all kinds of pests to make their last pre-winter harrah. Continue monitoring your pet safety by checking for fleas and ticks. Those are nasty little buggers to bring indoors to endanger your family, let alone torment your furry friend. Also, be aware of where your pets romp around. Leaves, wood piles, and long grass can host dangerous snakes and other cranky critters trying to prepare for winter.
  3. Ensure access to water. Even though the temperatures are cooling, your pet still needs to drink a lot of water to stay healthy and active. Check the water bowl, especially if its outside, as cooler temperatures can freeze the water. Clear out ice chunks from the bowl to increase pet safety. While you’re at it, check the walkways and gutters for ice buildup – if the bowl water froze, chances are that ice could have built up and created danger zones elsewhere.
  4. Stay vigilant on holidays. Your pets become attention hogs with all of those guests around, but it’s easy to lose track of them with all of the festivities.
    • Halloween: Thinking of dressing your pets up and letting them participate in giving out candy? Consider using reflective stickers on their outfits in case they get loose at night in the street. Also, keep an eye on that candy bowl by the door. Your puppy might decide that chocolate smells tasty, but it can make a dog seriously sick.
    • Thanksgiving: Lots of leftovers? It’s tempting to throw some to your lovable, pouting pooch. But many human foods can be harmful to animals. When it comes time to clean up, use safe alternatives to harsh cleaning chemicals. This will avoid releasing fumes and covering surfaces with human and pet safety hazards.
    • Christmas: Presents, tree water, decorations, strings of lights – all of these may look delicious to a dog or cat, but the sharp edges, chokable objects, and electrical sources can considerably jeopardize pet safety as well as interfere with seasonal celebrations.

Concerned about human or pet safety risks that might already exist in your home? It’s never a bad time for household maintenance and safety inspection services. Inspect-it 1st will help you find and address any possible concerns, keeping your entire family – including your pets – safe. Best of all, an inspection can set your mind at ease so that you can fully enjoy the cooling fall weather and the holidays to come!

6 Fall Lawn Care Secrets

Fall lawn care basics. In the fall, lawn care is tricky. Temperatures are beginning to descend. Days are becoming shorter. Soon the trees will be covered in fiery coats, and then they will shed their leaves onto the lush green grass you took so much time to care for over the hot summer months. As winter nears, your lawn will go dormant and may even become covered in a blanket of snow. These seasonal changes require an increased awareness. Improper fall lawn care could result in rotted roots, insect infestations, and other problems that delight pesky spring garden gnomes.

 

Here is our complete list of the six fall lawn care secrets the garden gnomes don’t want you to know – shh!

  • Fertilization will boost spring growth. Many proud yard owners don’t realize that grass roots keep growing during the winter months, even if your yard is snow-covered. Fertilization in the fall provides additional nutrients that supply a boost to your lawn until the snow melts and spring arrives.
  • Power seeding increases turf density, reducing insect and weed damage. Want thicker grass? Power seeding in your fall lawn care routine increases turf density. Not only does this mean your grass will come in less patchy next year, it also reduces the space for nasty weeds and detrimental insects to take hold. Be careful not to overseed, as this could harm your turf in the long run. Professional fall lawn care teams can measure the right amount for your lawn’s needs.
  • Lawn aeration counters summer lawn traffic. All of those football games and grilling parties in the yard really condensed the grass. Aeration counters grass compaction and increases the amount of oxygen and nutrients reaching the roots.
  • Raking/blowing leaves off the lawn once per week increases its health. Autumn leaves may dress up the trees and even decorate a yard in fallen color, but the leaves can actually prevent sunlight from reaching your grass and shrubs. No sunlight means that your lawn greens can’t build up the food it needs to remain healthy through the winter.
  • Fall is the best time to discover pest problems and take preventative steps for spring. Grubs and other insects can destroy roots, not to mention eat certain shrubs outright. Analyzing your yard and treating it for pests is crucial to fall lawn care and gives your lawn a head start for the spring. And since certain chemicals may be applied to treat your yard, what better time than the chilly fall to have to keep your family off of it?
  • Winterizing shrubs/trees prevents moisture loss and accidents. Maintaining your lawn also means maintaining the other components of your yard, as the system works together. Note that certain evergreens experience extreme loss of moisture in the fall and winter. To help prevent this dehydration and keep your yard healthy, you can apply a special oil to trunks. In addition, trim back limbs that overhang your house and walkways. When covered in snow or potentially frozen and brittle, they could break off and fall onto/around your house which could end in costly repairs.

Keeping your yard healthy and pest-free starts with fall lawn care. Power seeding, aerating, fertilizing, and other practices will ensure a healthier and more aesthetically-pleasing lawn in the spring. This is especially important if you are looking to sell your house, as both the interior and exterior will be extensively checked for problems. Not to mention it will need to look its best!

 

If you are concerned about pests or other problems that might come up in the exterior checklist of a house inspection, take the first step by hiring Inspect-it 1st. Their quality inspection services will help give you peace of mind about the state and safety of your home.
