Most of the homes in Rocklin were built before 1990. Downtown has a lot of neat old Victorian homes. Therefore, this is one of the oldest areas around.
The average home is made with wood frame construction, wood siding and on a raised foundation and this is a great design for the area. A lot of these homes have septic and a well. These can have problems. I always recommend we get a full clean out of the septic and the well should be tested.
The newer part of Rocklin is mostly up in the Stanford Ranch area and they are all slab foundation with stucco siding. This is a good design and will lead to years of maintenance free ownership.
