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.

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.
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.

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.

Castle Rock Construction

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.
