Termite Treatment Costs: What to expect http://certified123.com/termite-treatment-costs-what-to-expect/ Thu, 27 Mar 2014 07:30:35 +0000 http://certified123.com/?p=625 Termite treatment costs can vary greatly from home to home.  Pest control companies measure the linear  footage of the homes foundation and multiply by the depth to footer to get total amount of termite solution for each job. Therefore all homes are different. Termite treatment costs for a large home on a basement will be greater than a small home on a crawl space.  Spot spraying only for termites will not protect your property with a warranty. Termiticides are special formulated to get the poison back to the queen and therefore kill the entire colony.  These chemicals not only kill active infestations but form a continuous barrier around the property for up to five years or more. Certified pest control provides a 3 year warranty against re-infestation after treatment. With our low overhead and no fancy termite commercials we can keep your termite treatment costs at about half of what big companies charge. We use the same chemicals and equipment. Its your money. Contact us today for a FREE quote.

Termite Awareness: Time for a Termite Inspection? http://certified123.com/termite-awareness-time-for-a-termite-inspection/ http://certified123.com/termite-awareness-time-for-a-termite-inspection/#comments Thu, 20 Mar 2014 07:30:42 +0000 http://certified123.com/?p=743 The spring time is always the best time for a homeowner to do a termite inspection. Termite colonies reproduce this time of year in the form of winged swarmers. If you see these flying around you probably have termites. Also keep in mind when gardening around the flower beds. Be on the look out for mud tubes on the foundation and termites in the mulch. A professional termite inspection will cost only $45 – $65 dollars. This is a small fee for getting inside that nasty crawl space and can save you thousands in structural damage. Here are some clues you may have termites: Visual mud tubes, these are shelter tubes for the termites to travel back and forth in from the ground to your homes wood source. Break them open and find a surprise inside. Odd smell in the house?, termites pass gas, methane gas! That sewer smell? Could be termites. Swarmers, lots of little wings around the doors or window seals? They love warm spring days. Blistering or bubbling paint? Termites like to stay just behind the paint when destroying your home. If you are buying a home or have found some of these signs call Certified for a professional termite inspection today.

6 Tips for choosing a Certified Home Inspector http://certified123.com/6-tips-for-choosing-a-certified-home-inspector/ http://certified123.com/6-tips-for-choosing-a-certified-home-inspector/#respond Fri, 14 Mar 2014 11:08:29 +0000 http://certified123.com/?p=728 Choosing your Home Inspector is one of the most important buying decisions you will make when purchasing a home. The worst choice you could make would be to waive your right to inspections. Here are my 6 tips to help you decide. Real estate lists: As it stands today 90 % or more of all home inspection business comes from Real Estate Agents. Most home buyers are content on letting their real estate agent make this choice for them. Not all Home Inspectors are the same. My recommendation is to also get two or three home inspector names and talk to your co-workers, friends and family for referrals. See tip two. Experience:  Ask them how long they have been in business? If someone tells you they have 40 years of experience and they are about 50 years old this is a red flag! Also some new home inspectors tend to stretch the truth a little. They might say they have 5 years experience when in reality its 1 year.  Do they have any building or construction experience? If you haven’t had a hammer in your hand at some point in your background you probably shouldn’t be a home inspector. Are they full time or do they work another job and this is a part time gig? With the new Indiana home inspector license law it takes about a week of class room study to become licensed. Ohio has no license at all. It seems that now more then ever there is a new home inspector going into business every week. Beware! References: Get references from real estate agents, friends, family, maybe even a co-worker. Word of mouth can make you or break you. Look at website testimonials, are they just too fake or are they very sincere? Report: How long does the inspection take? To do a good job inspecting a home the inspector should spend at least 2 hours on the home. If they say one hour run away! What about optional inspection services? Termite (wdi) inspection, Radon testing, and Well & Septic testing. Ask if they are too big! Can they fit in the crawl space to check for termites, wood rot, and mold? Can they get in the small attic hole to tell you how much insulation is up there? When will i get my report? With today’s software you should get it the same day. Type of Tools: Every home inspector will carry a flashlight. In today’s industry every good inspector will have specialized tools: moisture meter, electrical polarity GFCI tester, temperature gauge and even a thermal imaging camera. Price: This should be the least important when making your decision. Most local inspector prices are only within $10 – $20 different anyways. Keep in mind you’re not buying a bag of apples here. Your buying experience and knowledge that will keep you from having major expenses after closing.   With 12 years experience on the job home inspections and a solid background in the construction trades you can feel confident choosing Mike Spurrier as your Richmond and Wayne County Home Inspector. www.certified123.com

5 key points of our Home Inspection checklist http://certified123.com/5-key-points-of-our-home-inspection-checklist/ Mon, 03 Mar 2014 07:00:46 +0000 http://certified123.com/?p=597 5 key points of our home inspection checklist Roof: Replacing a roof is expensive and should never be left out of your home inspection checklist. Inspect for storm damage, cupping, curling, worn and missing shingles. How many layers?Plumbing vent pipe boot seals will split and crack around 14 years old. Don’t forget to get in the attic. Sometimes roof leaks are not bad enough to make it through the insulation to stain the ceilings. HVAC: Turn up thermostat. Check the age of furnace.Does it look old? Check the heat ex changer for cracks.  Look at the burners for nice blue color. Is there any rust or  debris build up? When the blower fan starts up is there any change in burner color or flame roll out? High efficiency or 90 % or better furnaces usually come with 10 year warranties to original owners. This gives you a good idea of when you can start to expect problems.  The days of furnaces lasting  30 -40 years is a thing of the past. Older and less efficient furnaces will last longer than the newer high efficient ones due to lack of having the condensing secondary heat ex changer.  Furnace heat ex changers can crack prematurely if there is not regular maintenance or the furnace was not sized correctly for the home. Turn down thermostat. Check age of A/C. Put your hand on the refrigerant line on outdoor unit. Is it getting cold? If not you could be low on refrigerant. A/C units life designed to 15-20 years. As with furnaces the older units last longer than the newer units.  Electrical: Is the service 60 amp, 100 amp, or 200 amp.? Is there a breaker panel or fuses? Fuse panels are no longer acceptable with today’s standards. Knob and tube wiring? Look for handyman wiring. Open wire splices, extension cord wiring, discoveries like this can signal safety concerns. Plumbing: Make a note of all water stains in your home inspection checklist. Have these checked with a moisture meter when running water. Get in the crawl space and  inspect the drain pipes, be sure to look at the sub flooring while you’re in there. Shower drain connections are prone to leaking.   Structure: With foundation failure everything supported above will move. The most often asked question I get is about cracks. If the crack is less than 1/4 inch thick there is no structural integrity issues. If bigger you may have a problem.Settlement cracks are common and concrete often will crack during the curing process. Sticking doors and windows in one area can also point to foundation trouble. This 5 point home inspection checklist doesn’t replace a professional home inspection but can help you while shopping for your next home. Avoid big surprises and call Certified for your home inspection needs.  765-965-7793

What everyone ought to know about radon gas and lung cancer http://certified123.com/what-everyone-ought-to-know-about-radon-gas-and-lung-cancer/ http://certified123.com/what-everyone-ought-to-know-about-radon-gas-and-lung-cancer/#comments Fri, 07 Feb 2014 07:30:18 +0000 http://certified123.com/?p=519 Radon gas is estimated to cause 21,000 lung cancer deaths in the U.S. Per year. This is more than drunk driving (17,400), falls in the home (8,000), drownings (3,900), and home fires (2,800). Think about all the public and media attention drunk driving  gets. By law Indiana has lead-based paint and lead-based paint hazards forms that are given before the sale or lease of housing built before 1978,  but not for Radon. Why is this? One out of three homes have elevated radon levels in Indiana. We all live in homes and radon gas is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer.
