Beware ! Home Safe is claiming they can "SEE THOUGH WALLS" now. They are claiming that with a thermal Image they can "SEE THOUGH WALLS" They even have the NY times believing this!

Home Buyer's Deadly Mistake,New Haven County CT,Fairfield County CT,Home Inspection CT, - 08/28/07 08:54 AM
Deadly Mistake Not hiring a buyer's agent to represent you. Buying property is a complex and stressful task. In fact, it is often the biggest single investment you will make in your lifetime.

New technology, laws, procedures and competition from other buyers require buyer agents to perform at an ever-increasing level of professionalism. For many homebuyers, the process turns into a terrible, stressful ordeal. In addition, making the wrong decisions can end up costing you thousands of dollars. It does not have to be this way!

Buying Your Dream Home in Ct? Fairfield County Home Inspection Can Save You Money,Stratford, Milford,Westport,Wilton.Darien, - 08/28/07 08:34 AM
The most important part of buying a home is the Inspection, Everyone knows that home ownership is the American Dream. That dream can quickly become a nightmare, however, for uninformed buyers. Even newly constructed homes can harbor costly mistakes-mistakes that may not be visible to the untrained eye. Many homebuyers assume that they do not need a home inspection. They simply rely on their eye and their intuition to check a property's quality and safety. That can be a costly, and dangerous, mistake. An inspection by a qualified home inspector can save potential homebuyers time, money, and heartache. Inspections generally cost a few (0 comments)

Mold Info, Fairfield County Home Inspection, CT, Fairfield, Weston, Easton,Wilton,Westport, Darien, - 08/20/07 02:12 AM
Moldy Facts http://www.fairfieldcountyhomeinspection.com/mold.html What is Mold? Simple, microscopic organisms found on plants, dry leaves, and on just about every other organic material. There are a variety of molds in the natural environment. Outside, molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees, but indoors, mold growth should be avoided. Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. While there are many types of mold, none of them will grow without water or moisture. Why is Mold Growing Here? Molds reproduce by means of tiny spores; the spores are invisible (0 comments)

Our Bridges are Crumbling While The state DOT Spins its Wheels, Fairfield County Home Inspection - 08/20/07 01:39 AM
This is what our State Senator has to say, about Fairfield's Roads and Bridges. The state Department of Transportation should scrap its ill-conceived plan for expanding Fairfield rest areas and get on with the more important work of making vital bridge and infrastructure repairs throughout Connecticut. For those of you who don't know, the DOT has proposed building an unsightly two-story truck stop over and around I-95 in Fairfield. The new rest area will consist of a 5,000-square-foot restaurant and convenience store surrounded by a sea of parking spaces built to accommodate 18-wheel tractor trailers. The purpose of this project, according to (0 comments)
I just finished reading the article regarding the Fairfield public school lawsuit being brought by Mrs. Fiore. While I know nothing of the details of the alleged discrimination, I do want to offer my support to Dwight's principal, Brenda Anziano, who is mentioned in the article. Ms. Anziano is an "openly" wonderful principal. She is a fine administrator and always puts the children first. If you were to stop by Dwight on any given day, you may see her playing soccer with the kids during recess, reading to kindergartners, (0 comments)
Fairfield CT Government, Fairfield County Home Inspection, - 08/05/07 07:27 PM
Fairfield Government The open town meeting with "select men" is the time-honored traditional New England form of government. As the town grew, changes were made and a town charter was adopted in 1947. Fairfield's government is still led by a three member Board of Selectmen, with a First Selectman who is the Chief Executive and Administrative Officer. The legislative body is the Representative Town Meeting (RTM). The RTM is limited by Charter to no more than 50 members elected from 10 voting districts. The Town Hall governmental complex has been located on the Old Post Road for over 200 years. In 1979, (0 comments)

Like many modern towns, sometimes Fairfield can seem like a city replete with both the hustle and the bustle most commonly reserved for places like New York, or Topeka, at least.
