As Home Inspectors, we are routinely asked “How long until this roof fails?” or “Do we really need to paint these walls, or can it wait a year?”. The answer to these questions is always, “It depends”. Home Inspectors wield powerful skills to evaluate an insane number of systems and identify defects. It’s true, not all hero’s wear capes. We cannot (yet) however, predict the future. If we did, we probably would be doing other things for a living.
The ultraviolet rays (UV rays) shorten the lifespan of numerous building components. This is why routine maintenance and oversight is needed. It is also why we must replace the materials periodically, to keep our building’s envelope intact. As a guide, you can find the life expectancy ranges for various materials in our blog called How Long Do Building Materials Last?! In this article, we discuss the timeframes for common building materials all around the home (and include a list specially developed for Florida). We all know Florida always requires special treatment, particularly when it comes to embarrassment in the news.
So please use this guide as a resource, and don’t ask us to tell you if the windows will make it through Hurricane Season. The answer, I will tell you right now, will be “It depends, on if we get a Hurricane”.
|ADHESIVES, CAULK & PAINTS||YEARS|
|Caulking (interior & exterior)||5 to 10|
|Paint (exterior)||7 to 10|
|Paint (interior)||10 to 15|
|Stains||3 to 8|
Gauging the lifespan of an appliance is a bit of a moving target. I grew up using the same refrigerator and washing machine my entire life, but see first hand that the ones I bought with computer chips and crazy features are being replaced in half a dozen years. Use this as a guideline, but make sure you conduct independent research on the make/model of the device you’re buying:
|Air Conditioner (window)||5 to 7|
|Disposal (food waste)||12|
|Dryer Vent (plastic)||5|
|Dryer Vent (steel)||20|
|Freezer||10 to 20|
|Gas Oven||10 to 18|
|Hand Dryer||10 to 12|
|Electric Range||13 to 15|
|Gas Range||15 to 17|
|Refrigerator||9 to 13|
|Swamp Cooler||5 to 15|
|Washing Machine||5 to 15|
|Whole-House Vacuum System||20|
I hope to not set a trend, but I’m afraid cabinetry and millwork is also a bit tough to predict. If kept free of moisture, most any of these materials will last the life of the structure. They don’t, however, all respond as gracefully to incidental and more frequent wetting.
|CABINETRY & STORAGE||YEARS|
|Entertainment Center/Home Office||10|
|Modular (stock manufacturing-type)||50|
Walls and ceilings will also tend to last the life of the building (when kept free of water). Adding water into the mix makes this component go south pretty quick.
|CEILINGS & WALLS||YEARS|
|Acoustical Tile Ceiling||40+ (older than 25 years may contain asbestos)|
|Wood Paneling||20 to 50|
Countertops get used more frequently than most surfaces within a home. The constant putting things down, picking them up and sliding them around takes a toll on the surfaces over time. Most should last the life of the structure, but chipping, breakage and the color no longer being trendy/popular are always pressing risks.
|Laminate||20 to 30|
Wood and other material built decks have a wide range of variability due to the means/methods in which they are built. If they fail to leave 1/8” gap between plank boards, the deck will rot prematurely. If built properly, these values below are solid estimations:
|Composite||8 to 25|
|Structural Wood||10 to 30|
Modern doors come in several materials that last a very long time. If kept painted and clean, they have a chance to last the life of the building. If the gaskets/weatherstripping are not, however, rot should be expected in the doors that face the exterior elements (particularly without an awning).
|Fire-Rated Steel (exterior)||100+|
|French (interior)||30 to 50|
|Sliding Glass/Patio (exterior)||20 (for roller wheel/track repair/replacement)|
|Wood (hollow-core interior)||20 to 30|
|Wood (solid-core interior)||30 to 100+|
The electrical wiring, when copper is used, lasts a lifetime. Sadly, the electrical components that have moving parts, do not. Overall, the electrical systems tend to have a pretty solid track record for longevity.
|Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCIs)||30|
|Bulbs (compact fluorescent)||8,000 to 10,000+ hours|
|Bulbs (halogen)||4,000 to 8,000+ hours|
|Bulbs (incandescent)||1,000 to 2,000+ hours|
|Bulbs (LED)||30,000 to 50,000+ hours|
|Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs)||up to 30|
|Residential Propane Backup Generators||12|
|Solar Panels||20 to 30|
|Solar System Batteries||3 to 12|
|Wind Turbine Generators||20|
Structural floor framing should be expected to last the lifetime of the structure, just keep it dry.
|Laminated Strand Lumber||100+|
|Laminated Veneer Lumber||80+|
One day, maybe fastener manufacturers will have to put lifespan estimates or warranties on their products. Until then, you can use this list as a guideline.
|FASTENERS, CONNECTORS & STEEL||YEARS|
|Adjustable Steel Columns||50+|
|Fasteners (bright)||25 to 60|
|Fasteners (copper)||65 to 80+|
|Fasteners (electro-galvanized)||15 to 45|
|Fasteners (hot-dipped galvanized)||35 to 60|
|Fasteners (stainless)||65 to 100+|
Flooring is a category where the decisions you make can certainly dictate how often you are replacing the floors. Those decisions, obviously, are centric to if you decide to have kids or not. We love our kids, but acknowledge that they are gross farm animals most of the time.
|All Wood Floors||100+|
|Carpet||8 to 10|
|Laminate||15 to 25|
|Other Domestic Wood||100+|
|Tile||75 to 100|
If you get that New Construction inspected and monitored by Red Flag Home Inspection, you can enjoy this type of longevity expectation:
|Baseboard Waterproofing System||50|
|Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs)||100|
|Permanent Wood Foundation (PWF; treated)||75|
|Post and Pier||20 to 65|
|Post and Tensioned Slab on Grade||100+|
|Poured-Concrete Footings and Foundation||100+|
|Slab on Grade (concrete)||100|
|Wood Foundation||5 to 40|
Believe it or not, people still build Log Homes. They actually make very solid structures. I don’t know about you, but I grew up playing with Lincoln Logs, so I get it. I could live in one, but I can’t shake the feeling that it would always feel like a hunting cabin (even if in the middle of a city).
|Log||80 to 200|
|Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)||100+|
Garage doors are pretty robust items, but the poor openers are doing all of the work. It’s no surprise that you’ll be replacing it more often. I miss Sears, they used to sell/install those things. Bring it back!
|Garage Doors||20 to 25|
|Garage Door Openers||10 to 15|
Home Technology is constantly evolving. Luckily, most has gone wireless. Running wires for speakers and all of these little gadgets would probably be a deal breaker for most. Luckily these smart little trinkets make that a non-issue.
|Carbon Monoxide Detectors*||5|
|Home Automation System||5 to 50|
|Security System||5 to 20|
|Smoke/Heat Detectors*||less than 10|
|Wireless Home Network||5+|
* Batteries should be changed at least annually.
You may have read our write-up on items NOT included in a typical home inspection. This category is littered with them (HVAC related). If you are buying a home and the unit is not new or ancient (meaning you have easy decisions to make), consider hiring a HVAC expert to evaluate.
|Air Conditioner (central)||7 to 15|
|Attic Fan||15 to 25|
|Ceiling Fan||5 to 10|
|Chimney Cap (concrete)||100+|
|Chimney Cap (metal)||10 to 20|

|Heat Exchanger||10 to 15|
|Heat Pump||10 to 15|
|Hot-Water and Steam-Radiant Boiler||40|
|Induction and Fan-Coil Units||10 to 15|
The most common thing that disrupts and damages insulation is water from a roof leak. Keep the water out, and the stuff will do it’s job for a VERY long time.
|INSULATION & INFILTRATION BARRIERS||YEARS|
|Black Paper (felt paper)||15 to 30|
You can tell, we picked some solid materials to build our houses out of. This stuff lasts!
|MASONRY & CONCRETE||YEARS|
|Insulated Concrete Forms (hybrid block)||100+|
|Concrete Masonry Units (CMUs)||100+|
|Masonry Sealant||2 to 20|
If you are still happy with those 3” baseboards, then you should be set for many years to come! Seriously, they look great (don’t replace them).
|MOLDING, MILLWORK & TRIM||YEARS|
|Attic Stairs (pull-down)||50|
Keep the wood free of wetting, and they will last a very long time.
|Oriented Strand Board (OSB)||60|
Oh man, we have done some weird stuff with plumbing materials. I know there were good reasons to start using Orangeburg pipe, but someone should have known that gluing together sawdust was going to fail.
|PLUMBING, FIXTURES & FAUCETS||YEARS|
|ABS and PVC Waste Pipe||50 to 80|
|Acrylic Kitchen Sink||50|
|Cast-Iron Waste Pipe (above ground)||60|
|Cast-Iron Waste Pipe (below ground)||50 to 60|
|Concrete Waste Pipe||100+|

|Water Heater (conventional)||6 to 12|
|Water Line (copper)||50|
|Water Line (plastic)||50|
|Whirlpool Tub||20 to 50|
This doesn’t pertain to Florida very much, but just in case you are in an area affected by Radon:
|Barometric Backdraft Damper/Fresh-Air Intake||20|
|Caulking||5 to 10|
|Radon Fan||5 to 8|
I probably should have put this way up top, I realize that most of you here are looking for this (sorry to keep you waiting, or was that intentional? You’ll never know):
|Aluminum Coating||3 to 7|
|Asphalt Shingles (3-tab)||20|
|BUR (built-up roofing)||30|
|Coal and Tar||30|
|EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) Rubber||15 to 25|

|Metal||40 to 80|

So many components lasting a “lifetime”! If mother nature just knew that!
|SIDINGS, FLASHING & ACCESSORIES||YEARS|
|Aluminum Gutters, Downspouts, Soffit and Fascia||20 to 40+|
|Aluminum Siding||25 to 40+|
|Galvanized Steel Gutters/Downspouts||20|
|Vinyl Gutters and Downspouts||25+|
I’m not a fan of laying mulch. I like to think I got more than 1 to 2 years out of that effort though.
|SITE & LANDSCAPING||YEARS|
|American Red Clay||100+|
|Asphalt Driveway||15 to 20|
|Brick and Concrete Patio||15 to 25|

|Gravel Walks||4 to 6|
|Mulch||1 to 2|
|Sprinkler Heads||10 to 14|
|Underground PVC Piping||60+|
|Wood Chips||1 to 5|
Pools are great. Hopefully your home came with one, because adding one nowadays is a fortune and it’s hard to get contractors to call you back. Some of the ratings above apply, due to the materials used.
|Filter and Pump||10|
|Interior Finish||10 to 35|
|Pool Water Heater||8|
I have seen some aluminum windows that look like they should be in a museum. When they get very old, and actually get used to open/close from time to time, it does not do great things to keep the rain out. If you have a house older than 2000 with aluminum windows, make sure you are budgeting for new windows.
|Aluminum/Aluminum-Clad||15 to 20|
|Double-Pane||8 to 20|
|Skylights||10 to 20|
|Vinyl/Fiberglass Windows||20 to 40|
A word of caution. All of these life expectancies vary with usage of the facility/item, the geographic area you are in (and the weather), the installation, the maintenance, and the quality of the materials. This is meant to be a general guideline, and was derived from the Life Expectancy charts provided by InterNACHI website.

Why Should You Think Twice Before Buying A Keyboard From The Market?
As time is approaching, modern technology is marching ahead with various technological advances. Undoubtedly this is benefiting mankind and making work life much less stressful. Without computers, nothing is possible these days as they can make work easier and can do all kinds of work with all accuracy. If you have bought a computer that you have been dreaming of then the next thing is to buy the necessary computer components. This will help you use the computer with ease and comfort, saving much of your precious time. Among all the components, a keyboard is very necessary for a computer as without this you cannot work easily.
One of the crucial benefits a keyboard provides is improving the trying experience. The market is full of keyboard options which can make your typing experience smooth and less annoying. For that, you have to look for the best keyboard type in the market that can give you services for a long time. Remember that, you will not purchase a keyboard all the time hence you have to be careful in choosing the type based on your preference. If you choose a keyboard that goes well with your computer or gaming set up then it will be icing on the cake for you. Apart from these, you have to look at the other computer components that you have to purchase as these are also needed for the computer. If the combination of the computer and its components is nice, your setup will look modern and stylish, so just use ideas from all sources.
Well, before making the final purchase for a keyboard you should think at least twice because many factors come into play and can have a big impact. So, some key factors you have to look down upon are:
Keywords have a good number of types in the market; some of the popular choices are ergonomic keyboard, mechanical keyboard, wireless keyboard, membrane keyboard and many more. Each of the keyboards is unique and poses some excellent features that can make your typing nice. It’s on you which one to go for but based on the current demand mechanical keyboards are one of the top picks as it has some unique features that other keyboards do not have.
- Price range
When it comes to price ranges of keyboards there might be lots of questions in your mind. Before buying a keyboard you have to plan your budget as the prices may vary with your budget. If you are buying a keyboard to use in the longer term then look for the best quality keyboards that come with awesome design and features. These might be a bit expensive but they will be worth the money and you can use them without the need for frequent maintenance. However, there are some nice affordable keyboards from famous brands that can suit your budget and can be used for a good time. Keyboards with advanced features and facilities can be used for a long time without getting damaged for that reason the price range can go up. Having a good idea about the price ranges can make the purchase easy without facing a dilemma and saves time.
The market offers various sizes of keyboard categories with colour varieties. If you choose a keyboard that is not comfortable in size then it can be an issue in typing fast or moving it. Usually smaller keyboards remove the number pad, have no spaces or even have shorter keys between the buttons. When it comes to big-size keyboards they have more hotkeys even media keys. You have to consider the keyboard size for a better experience else handling the keyboard can be uncomfortable.
Keyboards are in great demand these days so to pick the best one you have to look at the qualities keyboards have and then compare to pick the perfect one according to you. For example, a mechanical keyboard is one of the best choices from a customer’s point of view and this keyboard choice cannot be missed at any cost because of its qualities like they have physical switches underneath each key and commendable consistent keystrokes which makes typing as rapid as well as quick. On the other hand, a membrane keyboard is also a good choice as when typing there will be less noise, comes with a long lifespan, etc. Both are the best in the current market and customers love them but it depends on your liking which keyboard quality has impressed you.
Lots of shops sell keyboards in all price ranges where some are cheap and some are costly. But, not all keyboards come with superb features, and customised facilities, especially with a warranty. If there is no warranty on the keyboard then you will be at a huge loss and if any issue occurs the shop will not help. Before buying any design keyboard just make sure to buy a keyboard that comes with a long-time warranty and return policy. This will make your keyboard purchase worth the money and give hope if any problems happen in the future.
Therefore, it’s up to you which one to purchase but if you consider these key factors you can purchase a better keyboard that can make your typing fast and glam up your computer setup. Considering all aspects, you can mark a mechanical keyboard as your top choice because the interesting qualities it has can surely make typing fun for you. It may come at a bit of a costly side but it will add value to your purchase if you are keen to buy a wonderful keyboard.
All in all, it’s always wise if you have alternative options in mind. You can buy a keyboard easily from any market shop but you can get a fool with a bad design and poor quality keyboard, hence you have to be careful. Choose a keyboard that can serve you for a long time without the need for extra maintenance and fear of keypads getting damaged with the fast type.

Why You Should Invest in Green Energy Right Now
Wind generators and photo voltaic panels are an more and more widespread sight. However why? What are the advantages of renewable energies—and the way do they enhance our well being, surroundings, and financial system?
This web page explores the numerous constructive impacts of renewable energy, together with the advantages of wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric, and biomass. For additional benefits and opportunities in the clean energy asset class, see our web page on The Environmental Impacts of Renewable Energy Technologies and renewable energy investments.
Much less world warming
Human exercise is overloading our ambiance with carbon dioxide and different global warming emissions. These gases act like a blanket, trapping warmth. The result’s an online of significant and harmful impacts, from stronger, extra frequent storms, to drought, sea stage rise, and extinction.
Improved public well being
The air and water air pollution emitted by coal and pure gasoline vegetation is linked with respiration issues, neurological injury, coronary heart assaults, most cancers, untimely dying, and a number of different severe issues. The air pollution impacts everybody: one Harvard College examine estimated the life cycle prices and public well being results of coal to be an estimated $74.6 billion yearly.
As well as, wind and photo voltaic vitality require primarily no water to function and thus don’t pollute water sources or pressure provides by competing with agriculture, ingesting water, or different essential water wants. In distinction, fossil fuels can have a significant impact on water resources: each coal mining and pure gasoline drilling can pollute sources of ingesting water, and all thermal energy vegetation, together with these powered by coal, gasoline, and oil, withdraw and eat water for cooling.
Robust winds, sunny skies, considerable plant matter, warmth from the earth, and fast-moving water can every present an enormous and consistently replenished provide of vitality. A comparatively small fraction of US electrical energy at present comes from these sources, however that might change: research have repeatedly proven that renewable vitality can present a big share of future electrical energy wants, even after accounting for potential constraints
Jobs and different financial advantages
In contrast with fossil gas applied sciences, that are usually mechanized and capital intensive, the renewable vitality trade is extra labor intensive. Photo voltaic panels want people to put in them; wind farms want technicians for upkeep.
Because of this, on common, extra jobs are created for every unit of electrical energy generated from renewable sources than from fossil fuels.
Reliability and resilience
Wind and photo voltaic are much less susceptible to large-scale failure as a result of they’re distributed and modular. Distributed methods are unfold out over a big geographical space, so a extreme climate occasion in a single location won’t lower off energy to a whole area. Modular methods are composed of quite a few particular person wind generators or photo voltaic arrays. Even when a number of the tools within the system is broken, the remainder can usually proceed to function.
Now the query is, why the concentrate on long run investments in renewable vitality?
Local weather change has been framed as an moral problem for years, with a combined success fee.Let’s check out the primary drivers for this lag – the fossil gas trade, which has not solely exacerbated the impacts of local weather change, but in addition affected the deployment and investments into renewable vitality sources. Coincidentally, oil and gasoline costs traditionally have been topic to wild fluctuations (even after fossil gas subsidies)and symbolize nothing however large threat publicity for any investor/portfolio supervisor. The oil trade is now on the entrance traces of rising investor fears about the long run returns of fossil gas vitality sources.
Now let’s look at renewable vitality sources. Let’s put aside the environmental benefits of averted carbon and the reputational advantages garnered by reaching inspiring company sustainability targets. What you’re left with are compelling monetary causes to voluntarily supply clear vitality in your funding portfolio.
Practically all the prices of photo voltaic and wind vitality are within the infrastructure required to seize it. Thankfully, these prices have plummeted at a rate beyond what any expert predicted. The identical can’t be mentioned for fossil fuels, and these sectors will finally or are already recognising that the economics of renewables have gotten irresistible. For instance, the price of fossil fuel-based electrical energy is predicted to extend over time, whereas the price of renewables is quickly reducing. Extra importantly, mainstream institutional traders are acknowledging that local weather change isn’t just a menace to the surroundings, but in addition a menace to the wealth of their shoppers.
Renewables have been selecting tempo during the last decade, and taking the instance of solar energy, it’s honest to say that know-how and efficiency have advanced significantly throughout this time. This is likely one of the key drivers for firms, resembling us, having entered this discipline.

While buying new tyres can be expensive, it is worthwhile to make sure you buy a good quality pair. The benefits will last for a long time and save you money in the long run!
Maintain tyres accordingly
Tyres are an important part of every vehicle. They have many uses and have to get maintained accordingly. As time goes on and the vehicle must get used more, the tyres wear down and need to get changed. Understanding how to keep them in the best shape possible will help you lower your fuel costs, save you money, and improve the overall feel of your vehicle! Check the pressure of your tyres regularly, as the pressure reduces over time and can even dramatically impact how your car handles. It’s also important to keep an eye on tread depth—as you can see, there are many things to consider when it comes to your tyres, but taking care of them will pay off in the long run!
Tyres are what make the car move!
They are one of the most important parts of the car and a great indicator of the excellent workmanship that went into the entire vehicle. On a standard car, there are four large wheels. These wheels are all connected to the axle, which transfers the force of the engine to the wheels. There are two axles on the car, one on each side of the car. One axle should get connected to each of the wheels on the same side of the car.
Importance of tyres
Car tyres are the most important part of your vehicle if you want to enjoy a smooth ride. That’s because as your car travels along the road, the tyres are what are in contact with the road, providing traction, control and comfort.

A cost-effective way to buy tyres
Tyres are a cost-effective way to give your car a new lease of life, and so are well worth the money that you’ve saved. So as you can see, tyres are extremely important and vital to your vehicle’s life and performance. You’ll need to follow the correct steps if you want to properly maintain your tyres. Now, you’ll need to remove the screws on the side of the tyre. This is where you’ll be able to access the previous tyre. Inspect it for cracks. If you see any, replace the tyre as soon as possible.
When you’re driving, always be careful about how you’re driving. If you drive aggressively, you’ll wear the tyre out faster than normal. If you drive like a normal person, you’ll be able to have a longer-lasting tyre.

The natural wake-sleep cycle of the human body is readily interrupted. Given that the majority of people who work shifts have difficulty sleeping due to issues with their internal body clocks (SWSD).
If your typical nighttime pattern is disrupted, it may be difficult to fall and remain asleep. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, shift work will be ubiquitous in the United States by 2020.
Inadequate sleep has been linked to a slew of negative outcomes.
Shift workers are especially susceptible to sleeplessness due to their unpredictable work schedules (SWSD).

According to a recent Cleveland Clinic study, 40% of night owls reported difficulty falling asleep during shifts. When action is taken, the possibility of unfavourable outcomes increases.
SWSD will be unable to maintain our regular service level due to scheduling difficulties. It’s a daily fight to get out of bed in the morning. Inadequate sleep has been linked to a variety of health issues. When people with the same medical illness receive varied degrees of treatment for their symptoms, determining danger becomes more challenging. It may be tough to regain motivation after a hectic work week.

Workers on the midnight shift require additional protections to prevent them from falling asleep in front of their computers.
When used in conjunction with other criteria, the SWSD criterion is beneficial. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV) or the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) are used by the majority of doctors nowadays (ICSD).
Work-related stress can occasionally keep you awake at night.
Try keeping a log of your nocturnal activities for a week to see if there are any changes in your routine. Determine how well you sleep and how frequently you wake up. When making a diagnosis, one must consider the patient’s medical history.
A sleep study, among other things, can detect snoring, sleep apnea, and narcolepsy (or rule out). A sleep study should be undertaken if a patient complains of sleep problems for seven nights in a row.
Even if a patient is unconscious, their vitals can be monitored.
Your argument may have some validity.
If you can’t fall or stay asleep, see a doctor. Though low melatonin levels are commonly blamed, this is not always the case.
In the United States, the recommended daily dose of a stimulant for adults is 150 milligrammes. Two of the more popular options are Waklert 150 and Artvigil 150. (mg). After a business has launched, operations play a critical part in ensuring its sustainability.
The FDA is presently investigating the possibility of addiction to medications such as modafinil (Provigil).
Almost anyone can get a good night’s sleep and wake up feeling refreshed if they solely use natural sleep aids. Modalert 100 has a minor but long-lasting effect on memory in healthy adults. If you have any unique requirements, we will do our best to accommodate them.
If you want to put a stop to your insomnia for good, you must first address the underlying causes. Check that all lights have been turned off before retiring for the night. If you have difficulties sleeping, you might try using white noise or noise-cancelling headphones.
It will be difficult to keep to your new weekly routine if you don’t get enough sleep every night.
The average American’s work schedule is irregular and extended. When new information becomes available, it is vital to revise previous results.
According to new research, changing your typical bedtime routine and experimenting with different sleep aids can help you obtain a better night’s sleep.
