Sewer Systems

Public Sewer System
a common sewer directly controlled by public authority
Private Sewer System
a sewer that is not owned or operated by a municipality or other public authority
Septic Tank

a tank, typically underground, in which sewage is collected and allowed to decompose through bacterial activity before draining by means of a leaching field/chamber (typically inside the development), or other special units designed to slowly release the effluent into the soil or surface water

STEP (Septic Tank Effluent Pumping) System

a system that includes a septic tank and a pump


sewage is conveyed by gravity to the tank through a building plumbing line and liquid waste is pumped under pressure to

the public sewer system


Construction 

Aluminum Siding
a siding material made from aluminum coil stock which is chemically coated and baked
All Brickthe structure is made wholly with brick (a material typically made of fired or sun-dried clay)
Asbestosa naturally occurring group of fibrous, heat-resistant mineral substances Types of Asbestos
Exterior Insulated Coating

aka synthetic stucco - a multilayered system of synthetic board and finish adhered to wood or gypsum sheathing

Fiber Cementa composite material made of cement reinforced with cellulose fibers
Frame

the fitting together of pieces to give a structure support and shape with materials that are usually wood, engineered wood or structural steel

Hardboard

a thin stiff sheet made of compressed sawdust and wood pulp bound together with plastic adhesive or resin under heat and pressure

Insulated Concrete Forms

aka ICF's - Insulated concrete forms are permanent, sandwich-type forms, in which concrete is poured between two insulation layers

Log

horizontal logs interlocked at the corners by notching, logs may be round, squared or hewn to other shapes, either handcrafted or milled

Partial Brickthe structure is made partially with brick (a material typically made of fired or sun-dried clay)
Stonea hard substance formed of mineral matter
Structural Insulated Panels

aka SIP's - a high performance building system for residential and light commercial construction where the panels consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically oriented strand board (OSB)

Stuccoa material made of aggregates, a binder and water that is applied wet and hardens to a very dense solid
Vinyl Siding

an engineered product, manufactured primarily from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin used for decoration and weatherproofing, imitating wood clapboard, board and batten or shakes, and used instead of other materials such as aluminum or fiber cement siding

Wood Siding

a type of building material installed on the exterior of a building that could be described as lap, drop channel, tongue and groove, board and batten, shake, or shingle
