We did the mud jacking at Dean L home yesterday. I wanted to thank you for locating the glycol lines in the floor for us. I am interested in the device you used to do that. Would you share what unit it is and the cost for it. It could be very handy for us to locate heat ducts, in floor heat and possibly even sewer lines. Thanks.

Insulating properties are rated by a national standard measurement called an R-value. The higher the R-value, the more resistant the element is to conductively passing heat. To give a basic reference, a typical double pained window has an R-value of about 7 to 9.
Many soil types lose load-bearing capacity when saturated with water. Other soils expand when wetted. One estimate reports that more than two thirds of U.S. soils are active in this way, including soils in Colorado. At each inspection, Gateway will produce.

Radon is a colorless and odorless radioactive vapor derived from the natural chemical decay of uranium in the soil, bedrock, and water all over the United States. In fact, it is so common that roughly 0.4 pCi/L is normally found in outdoor air.

To say nothing of having complete comfort and confidence in your home, many factors affect the value of your new property purchase over time. One of the most significant is the physical condition of the property - past, present, and future. A prudent buyer must be concerned with the past maintenance and improvements because they are indicative of owner and management practices as well as expenses to be incurred in the future. The buyer should always consider the condition of the property at the time of sale, and over the property's intended usage life, because property condition directly impacts the marketability of realizing the return on your investment, whether in leveraging or in selling.
Most home buyers have always given some attention to the physical condition and needs of their property. However, the amount of attention, the data secured, the quality and analysis of that data, and the impact of this information has varied widely. Indeed, many properties and the loan that they secure are now in trouble because of inadequate consideration of the physical needs coupled with inadequate attention to property maintenance which has diminished the marketability and overall value of the property.read more
