Start with a visual assessment.  Possible concerns noted in a visual walk-through of the interior would include:

  • Cracks in the walls and floors.
  • Peeling paint and efflorescence.
  • Movement in the foundation or footings.
  • Water intrusions in the walls and floors.
  • Buckled or bowed walls.
  • Sump-pump issues.
  • Hydrostatic pressure or high-water table indicators.
  • Visible mold.
  • Leaking pipes.
  • Water stains.

The exterior assessment would begin with identifying any issues with landscaping and grading, drainage, gutter, downspout, roofing, or windows.

All of the information gathered can then be reviewed and an action plan  established.  The action plan may encompass a process of making repairs and then determining if those repairs were enough to eliminate the water problem.  When all repairs have been made and one finds that the water has not been controlled, it is then time to move to a water-control system, aka waterproofing.

NATIONAL AMERICAN EAGLE DAY

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

June 20th is National American Eagle Day.

This day is to honor our national symbol, raise awareness for protecting the Bald Eagle, assist in the recovery of their natural environments and take part in educational outreach.

The Bald Eagle was on the brink of extinction in the United States. The species was removed from the U.S. Federal Government’s List of Endangered Species in 1995 and transferred to the List of Threatened Species. In 2007, it was withdrawn from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife in the Lower 48 States.

Their nests are the largest nests of any North American bird and the largest tree nests ever recorded for any animal species. The largest recorded eagle’s nest measured 9.5 feet in diameter and 20 feet deep. It weighed nearly three tons.

 

National American Eagle Day is sponsored by The American Eagle Foundation. For more information, visit www.eagles.org.
