Don't Over Do It!

The electrical wires in your home are rated for a specific amount of amps. Amp's refer to the AMOUNT of electricity that the wire can handle. For reference, power lines carry about 10,000 amps. Transformers (those big white cans on power poles or green boxes in your yard) step-down the amps to to around 200 amps when supplying your home with power.

One of the most common issues found during an inspection is debris on the roof. Debris can hold moisture and prevent the roof covering from adequately drying - which can decrease its useful life. Prolong the life of your roofing material by having a professional get up there and remove those leaves.

A new homeowner in Tallahassee was able to save some $ on her home owners insurance by adding a Wind Mitigation Inspection to her Home Inspection Service.  The roof was low pitched, and I had to literally crawl across a roof truss to get a picture of the metal clips....fun!

Have you changed your air conditioning unit's air filter in a while? The purpose of the filter is to capture large air particles which may build up and disrupt the unit. When it gets dirty, the unit will starve for air and overwork. Is it time to change that filter?
