About to buy?
From new construction to properties on the National
Historic Registry, any home you consider purchasing
requires a thorough inspection. Schedule an
pre-purchase inspection to help you find any
potential items that may factor into your buying
decision, give you leverage in renegotiating the sale
price, or allow you to request repairs before closing.
property typically involves a significant investment. Every
building, whether an apartment building, storage facility,
or grocery store, needs to be completely inspected prior to
purchase in order to properly protect that investment.
A key part of
commercial inspections is
thermography. An infrared inspection of electrical
panels and machinery helps identify areas that consume
higher amounts of energy than necessary. Infrared
thermography can also
potential water leaks in the overall structure of
infrared thermography with your inspection before you close
the sale to find any issues that may cost hundreds of
thousands to repair later.
Pacific Northwest Building Inspections considers
to be one of the most important tools in an
Everett home inspector’s tool bag. A scientific
process that essentially measures thermal or infrared
energy, infrared thermography can detect insulation, air
leakage, water, electrical, heating, and cooling problems.
Without any disruptive – or destructive –
exploration, Pacific Northwest Building Inspections can discover water leaks around
windows, doors, interior and exterior walls, roofs,
and water pipes. Wall insulation and the heating and
cooling efficiency of windows and doors can also be
assessed by using an infrared camera.
Bit About Everett Washington
Permanent settlement by European descendants of what is now
Everett started in 1861 when Dennis Brigham built a cabin on
a 160-acre (0.6 km2) claim on the shore of Port Gardner Bay.
Over the next several years, a handful of settlers moved to
the area but it wasn't until 1890 that plans for platting a
town were conceived.
Henry Hewitt along with Charles L. Colby and Colgate Hoyt
founded the Everett Land Company for the purpose of building
the city of Everett, named after the son of Charles Colby,
on some of the land surrendered by its original inhabitants
under the 1855. Everett was officially incorporated on
May 4, 1893, the year the Great Northern Railroad came to
the town. Everett hoped that James J. Hill would make the
town the terminus of his railroad. However Hill continued
the railroad along the shore of Puget Sound to Seattle.
Railroads and mines played a part in Everett's future. The
mining community of Monte Cristo, depended on a railway for
supplies. It was hoped that the railroad would cross the
mountains and bring in traffic. For a while ore was smelted
in Everett, then sawmilling and port activity commenced. A
dozen steam riverboats were built in Everett for the Yukon
was the place where several survivors of the Bellingham
riots settled, until they were beaten and forcefully evicted
by a mob on November 5, 1907. Everett also was the site of
the Everett Massacre of 1916 which was an armed
confrontation between a mob led by local Sheriff Donald
McRae and IWW members. The IWW members were on the steamer
Verona and sought to land, but Sheriff McRae denied them his
permission. Shooting broke out and at least five IWW's were
killed and two in the Sheriff's mob were killed, though they
might have been accidentally shot by others in their
allegedly drunken group.
streets are named after each of the three founders. Adjacent
streets Colby Avenue and Hoyt Avenue run north and south and
are intersected by Hewitt Avenue running east and west just
south of the BNSF Railway tracks cutting across Everett.
There are several other streets named for their associates
such as Bond Street named for Judge Hiram Bond President of
the Everett & Monte Cristo Railroad.
