Post loss conditions of a structure can be minor to severe predicated on the type of loss and its severity. Both small and large losses will require trained professionals to perform mitigation & restoration pertinent to the specific loss, followed by reconstruction to return property to pre-loss condition. It is imperative that your loss is assessed and the initial restoration efforts are performed correctly preventing further damage or distress to property and structure. Reconstruction is a very critical part in the process of restoring your property back to pre-loss condition.

All of our workers are trained, properly equipped and supervised by certified staff while handling all restoration & reconstruction projects. We produce high efficiency, quality work accompanied with superior customer service. We specialize in insurance restoration & reconstruction for damages resulting from Fire, Water, Smoke, Storm, Vandalism and Vehicle impact.

Water damage restoration: There are two large certifying bodies, the IICRC and the RIA, that recommend standards of care. Most companies in the restoration industry use the IICRC procedural standard, which is known as the S500. The S500 indicates the standards and techniques related to the current technology and proven service required to perform water restoration.

Fire damage restoration: Fire losses are often the most complex, after a structure or property has suffered fire damages they typically are accompanied by smoke and water damage. Smoke damage occurs as a direct result from the combustibles being burned and the water damages are a result from the excessive amount of water to extinguish the fire. The combination of these three can leave a property and structure severely distressed and damaged.

Smoke damage restoration: Smoke damage to a home and the restoration/remediation efforts used to properly restore structural or property are predicated and based on the type of combustibles that have produced the smoke and severity of the damage. Having a restoration professional performing the smoke damage remediation using the industries techniques and supplies will ensure the highest quality or removal of stain and odor removal.

Storm damage restoration: Structures or property damaged by rain, wind, hail, or the combination of any fall into this category. Storm damages often result in roofing components being compromised which could result in water intrusions resulting in interior damage. Strong winds can cause structural components to fail and long rains resulting in super saturated soils can also cause water intrusion. Storms can also cause trees to fall and impact a structure. The severity of damages a structure receives from a storm will greatly be impacted by the intensity of the storm and the deficient condition the storm has created. A timely response by trained professionals can often quickly remedy or reduce damages caused to a structure or property.

New Home / Builder's Warranty Inspections by SitePro



SitePro is dedicated to providing you with valuable information about your new home. We thoroughly inspect all major components of the subject property to expose unknown defects and advise you about future maintenance about your home once the purchase is complete. SitePro will give you the information you require to make an informed decision.

The Panhandle area continues to grow. As a result, home builders continue to scramble for more and more land and seem to be building homes at a record pace. Owning a home is the American Ideal, but building a home is the Dream of a Lifetime. Unfortunately, for some new homeowners it can become a nightmare.

As a result of extraordinary growth in the Panhandle over the last few decades, builders have grown to rely upon subcontractors who are continually looking for qualified labor. Most of these subcontractors are exceptional and well trained. However, with the record pace of building, it is possible to have workers who are tired, overworked or not as qualified as they should be. As a result, some new homeowners have found that these subcontractors have maybe forgotten to insulate portions of attics, have not installed electrical or plumbing components correctly, or have failed to finish their work such as not installing all the roof tiles needed for a roof. If they do not document these items or catch them before the end of their warranty, the homeowner, not the builder, is responsible for repairing these items down the road when they sell their home and the buyers have an inspection performed.. As a result, these homeowners are faced with hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in costs that could have been avoided with a comprehensive inspection.

By working with SitePro, you can provide your builder with a thorough, detailed written summary of defects that need to be corrected while your home is still under warranty. It's a good idea to have an independent authority conduct your home inspection. That way you have the peace of mind knowing you have a complete and accurate account of your home's condition.

There are many local inspection companies who perform these types of inspections, but only a few are as thorough, experienced, or professional as a SitePro inspector. Understanding that a new home can be overwhelming and sometimes fearful, our inspectors take extra time to ask you what issues you are concerned about. We encourage you to be present during the inspection and in some cases follow us so you can see what we see. Whether you follow us or not, we take time at the end of the inspection to walk through the home identifying issues. Additionally, inspectors from SitePro take extra time to point out maintenance issues. Our inspections not only cover the basic items in a normal inspection, we spend extra time looking at systems and structural components to ensure potential issues caused by substandard workmanship are identified and corrected before they become an issue. SitePro inspectors are not only highly qualified in construction trades, building and zoning and real estate, we have an acute understanding of the process as well as typical mistakes that are made over and over by some subcontractors.

Why not REQUEST AN INSPECTION today and have the PEACE OF MIND you always wanted for a fraction of replacing/repairing/installing items in the future?

Favela’s Fusion Upscale, Elegant: Fairfield Restaurant Takes Mexican Dining to Next Level


FAIRFIELD — Before you go to Favela’s Fusion, smash any notions or memories you may have about Mexican dining.

You are not going to a funky dive or a homogenized chain restaurant. And you may not find a typical plate of rice, beans and an entree for less than $10.

At Favela’s, you are going to experience Mexican fine dining at its best from beginning to end. You will pay more. It will be worth more.

While the exterior of Favela’s Fusion may be nondescript, visitors who enter the restaurant are immediately transported by the sophisticated, artistic and enchanting space inside.

Original art from Guadalajara adorns the walls. Comfortable, intimate seating invites and welcomes. Experienced staff members are on hand to explain the comprehensive and intriguing menu. They are also available to assist with many of the restaurant’s cocktail or wine options available at the full bar.

“We wanted to take the Mexican dining experience to the next level,” says Veronica Favela-Diaz, who together with her husband owns Favela’s Fusion and two other more traditional Mexican restaurants located in Fairfield and Vacaville. “We are not trying to present something fast or cheap, which a lot of people are accustomed to. We worked hard to develop a special vibe and culinary experience that would help show another side of food from Mexico.”

While the entrees are tempting, the restaurant’s appetizers are a fascinating gastronomical journey all on their own. They range from their well-loved guacamole to two different types of ceviche to empanadas and Favela’s exclusive “Z” tacos made with sirloin steak and melted cheese. Special appetizer prices are available from 3 to 6 p.m. daily.

Main plates feature classics with new twists, such as the Enchiladas Oaxaquenas dish that offers corn tortillas stuffed with shredded chicken and topped with a customized mole sauce (a traditional gravy made of dried chilies, plantains, raisins, chocolate and nuts) that is made from scratch. Also on the menu is a jumbo shrimp dish in a tequila sauce and Favelas well-known and beloved Chile Relleno. Prices for appetizers can range from $7.50 to $10.25 while entrees average at about $20.

“Our food is top quality,” says Favela-Diaz. “Truly good Mexican food is very complicated and there are several steps that must be taken to ensure that it’s special. We have a consultant chef from Napa who lived in Mexico and was inspired by his grandmother’s dishes. He has helped us with making sure we continue to offer the best of authentic Mexican cooking but also modern techniques. Everything we make is chopped, peeled and roasted on site. We don’t take any shortcuts.”

Favela-Diaz, who has an insatiable curiosity about culture and cuisine, is celebrating her 25th anniversary in the restaurant business this year.

“It just started out as a crazy idea of mine to go into the business, but I really found a passion for it,” she says.

She gives a great deal of the credit to her staff members. Many of them have been with her since she started out.

“There is so much passion among the people who work here, and they really make it happen,” she says.

Favela’s Fusion is located at 1500 Oliver Road, Suite D in Fairfield. The hours of operation are 11 a.m. 9 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday. More information is available by visiting http://favelasfusion.net/ or calling 707-421-8484.

Founder's Message - The Academy of 21st Century Learning



 The Academy of 21st Century Learning is conveniently located in The Nut Tree Plaza in Vacaville. Your student will love it here—it’s inviting, challenging, safe, and fun! We have a mascot (Sophie the Shih Tzu) and a vibrant team of innovative and caring educators. Our educational games in the lobby even make parents want to get in on the learning, and where else can you write on the walls and tables, all in the name of education? So how does this all come together? As our model, The Academy of 21st Century Learning uses a framework comprised of four key categories that prepare students for the complex demands of learning in the 21st century.

  • Core Subjects in the 21st Century: All schools pay their respects to the core subjects –math, English, science, etc. –but we take our students to the next level by rigorously emphasizing critical thinking and analysis, creativity, and adaptability in all areas of their lives, whether it’s AP English, basketball, or Yearbook Club. 
  • Learning and Innovation Skills: What does Google teach a child? In today’s world, where there are many “right” answers, a search engine may be able to deliver the answer, but that does not mean it is actually capable of instilling the learning and innovation skills necessary for success. 
  • Information and Technology: Today’s textbook is a tablet. Although many teens claim to be technologically savvy, we realize the necessary tools for the 21st Century go well beyond being able to install your grandmother’s printer software. To this end, The Academy teaches advanced computing skills—we hold computer programming classes, and our tutors incorporate the use of advanced computational software in their instruction. 
  • Life and Career Skills: What happens when school ends and you’re faced with a real-life problem? Can you add it? Format it in MLA? Boil it in a beaker to find a solution? We prepare students life beyond the classroom by pushing them to their limits with challenging problems. The Academy is a place where it’s okay to be wrong. In fact, we embrace it, as no one has ever developed a strong character by solving easy math problems and being right all the time. 

Successful tomorrows start at The Academy!

Stop By And Check Out Julz Ice Cream & Candy!


Julz Ice Cream and Candies, formerly known as Naidu’s Ice cream has been a family owned business in West Sacramento for the past 23 years. We are a wholesale Novelty warehouse specializing in brand names like Blue Bunny, Good Humor, Its It, Nestle, Haagen Dazs, Wonder, Foster Farms, Ben & Jerry’s, M & M Mars, Delicias, and Rich’s to name a few.  We serve the local ice cream truck vendors, mini marts, schools, Churches, Company picnics, and General Public in any event that needs ice cream. 

My father, Mr. Naidu started as an ice cream vendor on the streets of Dixon, California, 30 years ago.  We all grew up selling ice cream on the streets of Dixon.  As soon as we got our driver’s license, our father gave us an ice cream truck to teach us responsibility and the value of a hard earned dollar.  Even till this day, we are known as THE ICE CREAM family in Dixon.  I remember throwing candies out from the trucks at the Dixon Mayfair Parade.  Good times!!!

Today our pride and joy is this wholesale novelty warehouse, which is operated by husband Ravi, my two son’s Shivam and Avineet and myself, Julz.  We are open seven days a week from 8am to 1pm, weather permitting.  Our hours change for the winter months. But whether hot or cold, ice cream is a treat that everyone loves to eat, stop by and check us out!!!!

A Bit of History

 
Don Westhaver has been working on cars in Vallejo for over 35 years and was shop foreman for the Mercedes-Benz, Porsche dealer in Vallejo for 15 years. He was the recipient of the rare and coveted Star Technician award from the Mercedes-Benz factory. Don also has a great deal of Porsche factory training and has the Audi/VW Quality Control award as well. When that dealership closed, Don decided to go out on his own.

We moved to Vacaville 9 years ago and it began to make more sense to move our business to Vacaville. In January, 2008 we opened for business at our current location. We have been busy ever since with very little advertising and are very pleased that we made the move.

How We Feel About Business

The auto repair business doesn't have the  best reputation, so we go the extra mile to build trust. That includes taking extra time to really explain what your car needs and why. Our goal is to give professional, friendly, honest service without the stress and hassle of going to the dealer. We will never sell you something you don't need.

The Home Buying Process - Windermere Hulsey & Associates


Windermere Hulsey & Associates
http://windermere-vacaville.com/
490 Merchant Street, Suite 101
Vacaville, CA, 95688
(707) 448-0700
vacaville@windermere.com

The Buying Process:

You’ve found the home you can see yourself living in, now what? There are several steps to the buying process you will go through before you can officially call it your own.

Purchase And Sale Agreement
Once an offer on a property has been made by a buyer and accepted by the seller, they enter into a legal contract known as a Purchase and Sale Agreement. This document outlines the specific terms and conditions of the transaction and is acknowledged by both parties by the signing of the document.

Inspection
Once a buyer and seller reach mutual acceptance on a property, a home inspector is hired to investigate every nook and cranny to determine if the home is in need of any repairs. An inspector will check items, such as the roof, basement, heating system, water heater, air-conditioning system, structure, plumbing, and electrical. Afterwards, buyers will have a chance to negotiate with the sellers to cover the costs of certain repairs or to ask for concessions.

Negotiation
Whether you’re a buyer or a seller, negotiation is the key to getting the best deal. Negotiations can involve everything from settling on a sales price to concessions and financing. Windermere Real Estate agents are expert negotiators whose job it is to represent your interests during the give and take of a real estate transaction.

Financing
You may already be pre-approved, but now that you’re closer to the actual purchase price, you’ll be working more in-depth with your lender on your final loan approval. To learn more about this process, pay a visit to our Mortgage Center .

Title Insurance
You will receive a full report detailing the property history for you and your lender to ensure there are no legal encumbrances between a new owner and the property being purchased.

Escrow
Once the offer is accepted and a closing date agreed upon, escrow allows the buyer and the seller to have an outside party ensure all parts of the contact are complete. Your Windermere agent can help coordination the completion of all necessary forms to the escrow company and monitor the escrow process until the transaction is complete.

Closing
At closing, all the paperwork is signed by the buyer and seller, both parties pay any settlement fees and the documents are officially recorded. Prior to closing, you'll receive a settlement statement outlining any fees which may apply to you. After closing is finalized and recorded, the home is yours!

About Windermere Hulsey & Associates:

Windermere has always focused on three basic principles: hire the best people; give them the best tools; create thriving communities. It’s not rocket science, but it has worked pretty well for us for the past 40 years.

The Best People
Windermere’s community of real estate professionals is our greatest asset. We have experts in all areas of real estate from your typical starter home to condos, luxury properties, and new construction. While residential real estate is the mainstay of our business, Windermere also has offices and associates who specialize in property management, commercial real estate, and relocation services. To further facilitate the home buying process, Windermere has affiliated partners in certain regions to provide mortgage, title, and escrow services.

The Best Tools
Our agents have access to a wide range of innovative tools and programs, allowing them to serve home buyers and sellers in a way that is truly unique to Windermere. Some of our most successful tools were born from our agents’ own ingenuity, and we continually look to them for ways to improve upon everything we do. Ultimately, the most powerful tool that Windermere has is our agents; their professionalism and commitment to community enables them to tailor their service individually to each of their clients’ needs.

Create Thriving Communities
Windermere is committed to the communities in which we live and work. Through the Windermere Foundation, our annual Community Service Day, and a variety of community events, Windermere agents, owners, and staff work together to help build and sustain thriving neighborhoods.
