We're committed to YOU, The Home Buyer
The exterior of the building includes; siding, trim, gutters and downspouts, windows, roof, garage, stoops, decks, patios, grounds and related items. Each of these items is inspected not only for its condition, but how it relates to the dwelling. Defects in exterior components such as the siding or windows can greatly affect other components of the home.
The exterior of the building is designed to protect the interior components
from mother nature.
There are many siding types such: as vinyl, stucco, brick, aluminum, wood, stone and synthetics. Each material has advantages and disadvantages which require different maintenance procedures and involve different cost factors. We will identify the type of siding and explain the normal maintenance requirements of each type as well as the existing defects.
One of the most dramatic effects on heating and cooling expenses is to replace old or poor quality windows. The windows need to be installed well and maintained to prevent leaks around the exterior and for good operation.
