General Roof Maintenance

We recommend having the roof evaluated every couple of years by qualified roofing professional. As a homeowner, we recommend to monitor flashing areas for built-up debris and look damaged or missing shingles while doing your bi-annual inspection of the house.

Roof Drainage Systems: Test Underground Drains

Test underground drains to ensure water is directed away from the foundation.

Vent Flashings : Vent flashing (vent collar)
Roof

Vent collars generally last 7-10 years. It is best to replace them proactively to prevent damage to the structure.

Consider adding a window well cover to help keep water out.

Bi-annual Inspection

We recommend clients to inspect their homes a minimum of twice a year, ideally spring and fall. Looking for areas that water could infiltrate the structure or items that have changed from the previous inspection. By doing this process on a regular basis you are more likely to catch minor issues before they become major issues.

Home Owners Association (HOA)

This property is part of an HOA. We suggest you obtain a copy of the association's bylaws as soon as possible to understand what is covered and required as an association. Ensure you read and understand HOA docs prior to the end of your contingency period.

Exterior Doors: Exposed Doors (no roof or covering over door)

Exposed doors are susceptible to water infiltration. Monitor the caulking around the area on a regular basis to help keep the water out. Adding a storm door (if it doesn't have one) is also good practice to create another layer of protection, keeping the water away from the door and reducing energy loss. 

Exterior Doors: Consider Adding Storm Door

Consider adding a storm door to create another layer of protection. This will deter the water from the door and reduce energy loss. 

Walkways, Patios & Driveways: Remember you are responsible for keeping people safe on your property so inspect walkways and sidewalks regularly. In the winter months keep walkways and sidewalks clear and slip resistant in compliance with local laws and regulations.
Walkways, Patios & Driveways: Driveway Sealer

Consider having the driveway sealed on a regular basis, this will help from the product breaking down. Caulking the cracks where it meets the building and sidewalk will help prevent the driveway from settling. 

We do not inspect these components as part of our inspection.
Hot tubs or associated equipment. Consult qualified hot tub professional to evaluate/understand proper and safe operation., Swimming pools or associated equipment. Have pool professional evaluate pool and surrounding area for function and safety. Pools should be fenced in and access gates should be kept locked.

Caulking and Painting

It's important that all exterior components are properly maintained and sealed. Wood and metal products should be painted to prevent material decomposition. Caulking around dissimilar materials and exterior penetrations will help prevent water infiltration to the structure. Monitoring these areas during your bi-annual inspection of the property is very important to keeping a healthy and safe home.

Water damage prevention

Consider placing a baking pan under your sink trap and store your cleaners in it. If the sink trap starts to leak hopefully you will notice it when pulling out your cleaners. Storing toilet paper around the trap area is also another good way to help identify a leak before it causes damage.



Consider Installing Water Alarms

Adding water alarms in areas where water damage is common is a cheap way to help prevent major damage.

Fixtures / Faucets: Frost free hose bib

Frost free hose bibs generally do not need to be shut off during freezing conditions. However, the hose must be disconnected to allow the faucet to drain properly or the system will not work. Adding a hose bib cover is good practice for added protection.

If it continues or you can not explain why, call a licensed electrician. 

Smoke Detectors: We Do Not Test or Evaluate Smoke Detectors

We DO NOT test smoke detectors as a part of our service. However, you should replace all smoke detectors BEFORE you move in. If smoke detectors are not hard-wired we suggest using the type that is wirelessly tethered so if one goes off they all go off. Install smoke detectors according to directions provided by the manufacturer or contact your local fire department. Smoke detectors should be maintained according to manufactures directions. Smoke detectors typical expected life span is 10 years
