Premier Inspections presents…
Did You Know?

Did you know the average cost for a home inspection ranges from $350 to $500? When calling for a inspection quote, please make sure to ask the following questions…

Are you a professional home inspector or real estate inspector?
What all is included with the price?
Is a wood destroying insect inspection included?
How long have you been an inspector?

It is important to know who you are hiring. Many inspectors will underbid, but the clients do not know who they are hiring or what is included. Some loans require a wood destroying insect inspection and it is difficult to find someone to come out to just perform it. An average cost for just a WDI inspection is $150 to $250. Here at Premier Inspections, we include a WDI inspection with every professional home inspection. Our prices may not be the cheapest, but you will be thoroughly informed on the home you are purchasing by an experienced professional home inspector. We are certified to inspect pools, irrigation systems, septic systems, water wells, pier and beam foundations and much more. When you hire Premier Inspections, you will get an inspector with integrity and experience. Please do your homework when hiring an inspector.

Call now and let Premier Inspections meet all your inspection needs.

5 SIMPLE PLEDGES TO MAKE FOR EARTH DAY

With Earth Day just around the corner, now is the perfect time to reassess our habits and look for ways to be more eco-friendly by cutting back on waste and energy consumption. And what better place to start than in our homes? Take these simple pledges to lessen your carbon footprint.

Pledge 1: Save Energy By Washing Your Laundry in Cold Water Only
Almost all of the energy used by a washing machine goes towards heating the water, so by simply turning down the temperature, you can really make a dramatic impact on energy use. In fact, washing in cold water costs 5 to 10 times less than using warmer settings. Learn how to green your laundry from start to finish.

Pledge 2: Save Water By Using As Little Water Possible To Wash Your Dishes
If you have a newer dishwasher, chances are it uses less water than you would hand-washing. Modern dishwashers use only about 3 to 10 gallons of water per load. Some easy tips for your dishwasher: scrape plates instead of pre-rinsing, use energy-saving options when you can, and wash only full loads.

If, however, you don’t have a dishwasher or would rather wash by hand, try to assess how much water you’re currently using and see if there’s any way to cut back. If you wash by filling up the sink or wash bins, figure out how much water they hold and how many times per day you wash. Or, if you just wash under the running faucet, keep in mind that faucets use about 2 gallons per minute. Get more tips on washing dishes more efficiently.

Pledge 3: Save Waste and Water By Switching From Bottled to Filtered Water
The bottled water industry is extremely wasteful. It involves millions of barrels of oil each year and the process actually wastes water. Since bottled water is often consumed on the go, most bottles do not actually end up getting recycled. Fortunately, for most of us reading this article, water flows directly into our homes — an amazing gift when you consider all of the places in the world where that is not the case. So why not get yourself a filter and a reusable bottle and fill up from the cheapest and most convenient place — your faucet.

Pledge 4: Save Energy and Waste By Switching from Regular Batteries to Rechargeable Batteries
Rechargeable batteries embody one of our favorite principles: reuse. While traditional batteries can only be used once, rechargeable batteries, as the name implies, can be used again and again. By using the same batteries over and over again, you cut back on the waste created by disposable batteries. When your rechargeable batteries are eventually used up, though, it is important to recycle them.

Pledge 5: Save Waste By Buying in Bulk
Packaging has gotten a bit out of control these days. More and more we’re seeing items that are wrapped with layer upon layer of unnecessary materials. One way to combat that problem is to buy necessities in bulk. If it’s something you use a lot, it’s worth it to upgrade to a larger size or multi-pack. This tip isn’t just relegated to wholesale stores either, although that’s a good place to start. Bring your own containers to stores like Whole Foods, where you can buy items like beans and grains in bulk–and skip the packaging all together

5 Key Reasons to Have a Home Inspection Before You Buy a Home

It’s easy to get swept up in the excitement of buying a new home and forget to make the important decision to have a home inspection performed before you sign the contract. Home inspections are an instrumental part of the home-buying process that can save you a lot of time and money in the long run. Remember that a home appraisal and a home inspection are not the same thing. Appraisals will not provide you with a detailed look at a property that can help uncover deep-rooted problems and potential pitfalls.
Here are five great reasons to have a home inspection before you buy:

Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover

Especially for those buying newer construction, a home inspection may feel like a waste of money. No matter the age of the home, there can be costly troubles unknown to the average buyer. Problems with wiring, plumbing and easement may not be visible during a showing and you’ll want to get an expert opinion.
Save Money
Home inspections generally cost from $300 to $500 depending on size and age of the home. That’s a good sum, but perhaps think of it this way: Those who skip out on the expense may realize in a few years that an inspection is much cheaper than rewiring the entire house.
Negotiate
One of the advantages of having a home inspection performed before you buy is the power it might give you to negotiate a lower price. If a home you’re really interested in is on the edge of your price range, information gathered during the home inspection may give you the bargaining power to talk down the price. You can also insert language into a purchase contract that allows you to back out of an agreement if the inspection turns up problems.
Seller’s Repairs
Not only are you able to negotiate a lower price, many buyers include clauses in their contract requiring the seller to make the repairs necessary before any money is exchanged. If the seller is unwilling to complete the repairs, estimate the cost and ask them to take that amount off the total. Solid facts about the quality and condition of the home can give you valuable bargaining power.
Know What You’re Buying
In the end the most important reason to have a home inspection before you buy is to really know what you’re buying. Research your potential home like you would any other major purchase. The more you know, the fewer surprises there will be down the road. Home inspectors can help you make a decision based on your current budget as well as your future time and money investment.

10 Quick Home Maintenance Tips

10 Quick Home Maintenance Tips

Home maintenance isn’t restricted to repairs. In fact, certain tasks–when performed regularly–may actually prevent things from breaking in the first place. But when things do go wrong (and it’s inevitable that they do), we have some backup plans that you can try before you grab the phone to call for pro. Appliances and plumbing are the most frequent offenders, but they also often can be the simplest to care for. From the gutters to the living room carpet, there’s a reliable method for keeping every part of your home clean, safe, and well maintained.

MUST-DO MAINTENANCE:
The quickest fix is to not have the problem in the first place. Here’s a checklist of items every homeowner should get to regularly.

1. Test your garage door opener monthly to ensure that it reverses when it hits an obstruction or when its sensor beam is interrupted.

2. Vacuum the clothes dryer’s exhaust duct at least once a year. If the duct is plastic, replace it (it’s a fire hazard). Rigid sheet-metal ducting is best.

3. Replace furnace filters quarterly, or as recommended by the furnace manufacturer.

4. Test all GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlets monthly. Press the test button and use a voltage tester to make sure the power goes off.

5. Clean leaves and debris from the condenser of a central air conditioner seasonally.

6. Once a year, vacuum the refrigerator coils underneath the appliance.

7. Have the fireplace chimney inspected and cleaned annually.

8. Inspect window and door caulking and weather stripping yearly.

9. Replace the batteries in smoke detectors yearly. And remember, even recent hard-wired smoke detectors have backup batteries that must be replaced. If you have never checked yours, do so.

How Sellers Can Prepare For a
Buyer’s Home Inspection

Home sellers quite frequently ask, “What will a home inspector be looking for in my home and how can I be more organized for the home buyers inspection?” Informed sellers can make the home inspection process easier and faster, ensuring a more thorough and accurate inspection. Here is a list that may be helpful for you in preparing your house for a home buyer’s inspection. Many of these items can be done at little or no cost and are part of a regular maintenance program for any home.

House Exterior
Remove soil or mulch from contact with siding. Six or more inches of clearance is best.
Clean out dirty gutters and any debris from the roof.
Check to make sure all water from downspouts, sump pump, condensation and basement entry drains is diverted away from the house.
Trim trees, roots, and bushes back from the foundation, roof, siding and chimney.
Paint weathered exterior wood and caulk around the trim, chimney, windows and doors.
Repair any failing mortar in brick or block.
Remove wood and/or firewood from any contact with the house.
Caulk all exterior wall penetrations.

House Interior
Clean or replace heating and cooling filters, clean dirty air returns and plenum.
Test all smoke detectors to ensure that they are working.
Have the chimney, fireplace or wood stove serviced and provide the buyer with a copy of the cleaning record.
Replace any burned out light bulbs.
Have clear access to attic, crawl space, heating system, garage and other areas that will need to be inspected.
If the house is vacant, make sure all utilities are turned on. This includes water, electricity, furnace, A/C and the water heater because they will need to be inspected.
Ensure ready access to all rooms and crawl spaces.
Clear all furniture, boxes, clothes, toys and other personal items that may block access to the furnace, water heater and electrical panel.

Basement, Crawl Spaces and Attics
Check to ensure that the crawl space is dry and install a proper vapor barrier if necessary.
Remove paints, solvents, gas, wood and similar materials from crawl space, basement, attic and porch.
Update attic ventilation if none is present.
If windows are at or below grade, install window wells and covers.

Doors and Windows
Ensure that all doors and windows are in proper operating condition, including repairing or replacing any cracked windowpanes.

Kitchen and Bathrooms
Ensure that all plumbing fixtures such as the toilet, tub, shower, and sinks are in proper working condition. Fix any leaks and caulk around fixtures if necessary.
Ensure GFCI receptacles are functional.
Check bath vents to see if they are properly vented and in working condition.
Clear out areas under sinks so they can be inspected.
