It is getting pretty hot outside this year. We routinely see temperatures over 110 deg. F in attic spaces and that is without the heat index figured in. We work in the heat daily and have put together some suggestions to help you stay safe. http://www.profengineering.com/workingheat
If you are looking to sign a contract on a new property make sure you can get your due diligence (inspections) done before you accept a short option period. It is common to have 1-3 different inspection contractors to schedule depending upon the age, location, and condition of the property. These might include an engineer, pest control, sanitation, well, personal appraisal etc. Keep in mind; you may need to deal with the findings requiring a bit more time. Right now the typical option period pushed by Realtors is 10 days, but many contractors are booked out 7 actual days or more. This means you can get inspections performed buy you may not have time to read the reports. We recommend a minimum of 14 days and more if the property is large and complex. If you cannot negotiate a longer option make sure the contractors you want to use are available before you sign.
