Sparks Homes - Construction Summary
Most Sparks homes are built on a perimeter foundation with a raised floor allowing a crawl space under the home. Sparks homes built on a slab foundation are not as common but can be found in older as well as new homes from builders. The primary advantage to a perimeter foundation is the ease of access to household systems (plumbing, ducting, cable TV wiring.) when making repairs. In most cases, there is a "hatch" in the house (commonly in a closet) allowing access to the crawl space. When a Sparks home is inspected, the home inspector will go under the house to check for plumbing leaks, ducting damage, and any signs of water or water damage.
Most Sparks homes are "stick built" meaning built with wood studs. The depth of the studs will vary between 4" (a "2 by 4") and 6" (a "2 by 6"). Sparks homes with a "2x6" perimeter construction are more desirable over a "2x4" due to the increase in insulation (the 2x6 is 50% thicker than the 2x4). The benefit is a home that is more comfortable and costs less to heat and cool. When showing Sparks homes, we routinely help you identify which ones are 2x4 vs. 2x6.
The most common type of roofing material is a composition shingle followed by concrete tile in finer homes. Many Sparks homes that are 15 years or older may also have shake shingles.
Most Sparks homes will have an exterior finish that is either vinyl siding or wood siding. Many homes in higher price ranges will be finished with a stucco exterior. One primary benefit to stucco over the siding is lower maintenance over time.
