What to Expect in a SitePro Home Inspection



A great SitePro Inspection is made up of three components; a snapshot of the building materials and systems in your home, a list of 'deficiencies' from correct or safe building practices, and an education on your homes major systems. The list of 'deficiencies' is often the most concerning to home buyers after a SitePro Inspection as this is what may break a sale or could involve unexpected expenses during the purchase process. So what should home buyers do after they get the SitePro inspection report?

Get All The Information
Everything about a home can be fixed except for its location and no home is perfect under the lens of a SitePro Inspection . Most home 'deficiencies' are related to changes made by amateurs after the home was built, neglected maintenance items, or aging systems needing replacement soon.

Read the SitePro Inspection  report and all the written comments from your SitePro inspector to get the most information from the report. Your SitePro inspector and your SitePro Inspection  report should be able to tell you what your next step is for each deficiency and the degree of urgency a defect has. Some 'deficiencies' are inexpensive to repair but urgent to repair as they may present a life safety hazard (e.g. exposed live wires). Other 'deficiencies' are not immediate life safety hazards but may require budgeting for the repair such as replacing an old hot water tank that is still fully functional at the time of the inspection.

Home sellers are also a great source of information on the home. For example, if the SitePro Inspector notices signs of a past oil heating system, the home seller should be able to identify if an oil tank has been removed from the site. Home sellers also should keep copies of warranties and guarantees on work done on the home. If the SitePro Inspector  identifies an installation defect on a new furnace, this may be repairable under the original warranty.

Talk To Your Realtor
You should have an excellent working relationship with your Realtor if you are going to have a successful real estate transaction. Experienced Realtors have dealt with many of the common home deficiencies found in SitePro Inspections in the past and they can offer solutions to you like:
  • ·         Arrange for the seller/builder to fix a deficiency before possession changes
  • ·         Helping you find a contractor or handy person who can fix the deficiency
  • ·         Arrange for more time before removing purchase subjects to investigate the problem(s)
  • ·         Re-negotiating the purchase price of a home
  • ·         Negotiating a Hold-Back in case of premature system failure or future Strata assessments
  • ·         Help You Decide when to remove inspection subjects

Your Realtor can also help give you guidance if the home deficiencies are beyond normal and reasonable repair and perhaps you should consider walking away from the home and looking for another one. Ultimately this decision is up to the client but your Realtor can help you understand what your options are.

Who Should Fix the Deficiencies?
Many home sellers are quick to suggest they will fix a deficiency rather than take a hold-back,  lower the purchase price, or lose the sale. While this method may solve the problem, the buyer does not have any control over who is fixing the problem and the materials used. As many 'deficiencies' in a SitePro home inspection come from amateur work, the last thing you want is for another amateur to 'fix' the problem. It is also important that all work is performed by licensed trades people and that any permits that may be needed are in place.

On existing homes, SitePro Home Inspectors typically recommend that the home buyer has the correct people come in to fix any deficiencies after the home transaction is complete. This allows the future occupant of the home to know that the repairs are done right and will be safe and solid for years to come. If the home is newly built, the builder and their trades people should correct any deficiencies before the transaction is completed.

Professional SitePro Home Inspectors  operate under standards of ethics which prevent them from quoting on, performing any repair work, or collecting referral fees for recommending any contractors. This is to protect
SitePro home inspection clients who have a lot at stake based on the recommendations of a SitePro home inspection report. If your SitePro home inspector offers to do repairs or have a family member do repairs for a fee, you should throw away the entire inspection as suspect and bring in an independent professional SitePro home inspector for a new inspection.

Call in the Experts
All repairs should always be performed by licensed professionals. For minor fixes, many professionals will perform repairs based on an hourly labor rate plus repair material which they typically will have in their service vehicle. Don't be surprised if there is a minimum charge for showing up. Your Realtor or the Better Business Bureau can help you find a trusted professional if you don't have any personal connections.

If the repair job is beyond a normal service call, it may be necessary to get a few quotes from professionals in your area. Contractor rates can vary by as much as 300% and the quality of labor and materials can vary greatly.


Final Thoughts
As no home is perfect under the lens of a SitePro home inspection, clients will always have to make some decisions about 'deficiencies' found in a SitePro home inspection report and assume some of the risks and maintenance expenses with a home purchase. While in some extreme cases the deficiencies may be severe enough to walk away from a home purchase, most items are fixable for a very small percentage of the purchase price of the home or with just a little maintenance time from the new home buyer.

No Grinding! Precision Concrete Make Precision Cuts Instead!


http://www.safesidewalks.com/northern_california.html  
Serving Northern California from
Kern County To the Oregon border

Not only does Precision Concrete's trip hazard removal help you comply with the ADA and avoid trip and fall accident liability, we also guarantee work far superior to and less costly than grinding methods.


Concrete grinders and scabblers, while commercially available and less expensive than replacement or filling, are more costly than the Precision Concrete Cutting method. Grinders are also unable to reach the edges of the sidewalk or grind the sidewalk level with the next concrete panel, so the trip hazard often remains.


Not only can Precision Concrete Cutting reach the edges of every sidewalk, we can remove trip hazards from virtually any angle and at any location. Trip hazards caused by cracked concrete or located in hard-to-reach places such as in gutters or adjacent to a wall will be eliminated without any damage to nearby impediments. Our method takes very little time, with few inconveniences to people using the walkway. The result is a safe, clean-cut walking path provided at a lower cost than any other method.

Gorgeous Kitchen Remodel by Castle Rock Construction

Castle Rock Construction 
1372 Cantebury Drive 
Fairfield CA 94533 

707-421-8924 
Fax: 707-421-8947 


Castle Rock Construction is proud to present it's most recent full kitchen remodel in Benicia, California.

Among the new surfaces are shaker style cherry cabinets with a clear finish, soft closing doors & drawers, and furniture grade domestic maple interiors. The cabinetry was trimmed and carefully installed by our Castle Rock artisans and made by Signature Cabinetry & Design. The countertops are a gorgeous cut of Crema Bordeaux granite slab, fabricated and installed by Marble Fino. The appliances are beautiful KitchenAid stainless steel models the homeowner purchased from Pearson's Appliance, and installed by us. Very nice choices Mrs. Homeowner!

The floor is a new wood look vinyl product by DuChateau Floors called Vinyl Deluxe recommended by Jim Pitcher, Owner of Castle Rock Construction. This is not your mother's vinyl floor! This is cutting edge technology. Can you tell the difference? There are astonishingly similar alternatives to hardwood flooring available today. Banned from kitchens and bathrooms no more! You too can have the look of hardwood without the drawbacks of wood products in wet and high traffic areas.

Lighting in the kitchen was enhanced by LED ceiling can lights and under cabinet LED strip lights. Notice there are no visible outlets interrupting the backsplash. We tucked outlets under the upper cabinets giving plenty of power where the homeowner needs it without the outlets being visible. Little details make a big difference.

Call Castle Rock Construction today about your kitchen remodel. We'd be happy to help design the kitchen of your dreams!
