RESOURCES FOR PREPARING YOUR HOME

  • Site: Soils engineers determine whether a site will support the structure. They determine the risk of landslide and the potential for earthquake damage. For referrals to structural and soils engineers call the Consulting Engineers Association of California, 1303 J St. Suite 370, Sacramento, CA (916) 441-7991. Structural Engineers Association of Northern California in San Francisco, can also provide referral assistance (415) 974-5147.
  • Pests: A licensed pest control operator searches a home's basement or crawl space as well as the attic and floor for termites, fungus, dry rot or excessive moisture from roof or leaky plumbing. A report can also indicate the condition of foundation and whether another specialist needs to take a look at plumbing, roof, electrical system, soils or drainage systems.

  • Roofing: Roofing contractors inspect the roofing surface only (not the attic side) for signs of wear, rotting, excessive drying and lost shingles, splits in roofing materials and exposed felts.
