What are the features of KotiApp?
Maintenance record is an important memo for any home. It includes your home’s basic data and more specific information on completed maintenance and repair actions, as well as recommendations on future actions.
- KotiApp includes an electronic maintenance record that is customised for your home. Once you have entered the basic data of your home and the completed maintenance and repair actions, the app will assist you in properly maintaining your home. You can electronically maintain your home’s maintenance record by adding all completed actions in KotiApp.
- The Land Use and Building Decree that entered into force in 2000 requires that there must be a maintenance record for all new buildings to be used as a permanent residence or place of work. A maintenance record is not mandatory for buildings built before the entry into force of the decree, but a maintenance record is part of good property maintenance.
Home folder is the place where you store the important information, photos and notes of your home.
- KotiApp includes an electronic home folder where you can save all important information about your home, such as the contact details of your electrician and chimney sweeper so that you will quickly find their phone numbers the next year.
- You can also save the drawings, permit documents and other documentation of your home in the home folder to free up space in your bookshelf.
- You can add notes in the app on the codes of the paints you have used and the data of all the lamps in your home, for instance, so that you can access the information when at the store. You can also add photos of renovations for future use.
Other issues to be taken into account
As an OwnEngineer site visit is mostly a superficial and sensory survey, the fact that a survey has been performed does not eliminate the possibility that the inspected site may contain hidden defects which cannot be detected with the methods used during a superficial survey. Hidden damage inside structural elements cannot be detected unless there is some visible damage on the surface of the structural element or damage that can be detected with a measuring device.
