Restoring old picture frames

I love how much work went into old picture frames. They often told as much of a story as the picture inside. I see lots of frames in my business that have not been treated well, that have been stored badly in sheds or sat in rooms with smoke building up on them for years. It's great to be able to get the frames back to their glory days and let their beauty shine on through. If you are looking to do some restoration of your own, my site has a collection of the tips and tricks I've learnt over the years to get the best effects.

How to Avoid Problems With a Pre-Purchase Asbestos Building Inspection

If you're preparing to purchase a home or other piece of property, there are certain things that you will need to do as a part of making that purchase. One thing that you might need to have done is a pre-purchase asbestos building inspection. You could be worried that there might be problems with your pre-purchase asbestos building inspection, and you might want to do everything you can to avoid any problems. These are some of the things you can do to avoid problems during this important process.

Find Out Whether This Inspection Is Needed

First of all, you should determine whether or not this type of inspection is needed. If you are purchasing a new home or property that was constructed after asbestos was made illegal in Australia, then the inspection might not be needed. An inspection also might not be needed if the seller can provide proof that the property has already passed one of these inspections recently.

However, be aware that if the property is older, then you will want to know whether or not asbestos is present. Plus, the local government and your lender might both require you to have the inspection done.

Make Sure the Inspection Is Done Professionally

There are a couple of reasons why you'll want to have the asbestos inspection done by a professional. For one thing, you don't want to put yourself at risk performing asbestos testing and performing an inspection of the property yourself. If an asbestos inspection is required for your purchase, then you'll need to have it professionally done in order for it to count. Plus, you can make sure that the asbestos inspection has been done properly if you hire a professional.

Arrange to Have the Inspection Done With Enough Notice

The pre-purchase building inspection can be one of the last things that you do when you're purchasing a property, but you won't want to put it off too long. After all, you don't want your purchase to be delayed because you haven't had the inspection done in a timely manner.

Keep the Paperwork from the Inspection

When you hire someone to perform a pre-purchase asbestos building inspection, they should provide you with paperwork to let you know about the results of the inspection. If asbestos is found, you can show the paperwork to the seller and start working on a plan for the next steps. If asbestos is not found, you can submit the paperwork to the local government and to your lender so that you can move forward with the real estate transaction.
