Home Remodels and Renovation Projects Need Inspections

Before you sign off and pay for a home addition, remodel, or renovation, have Preferred Home Inspection make sure that the work was done correctly. Most people don’t think of ‘inspection’ when they think about completing a remodel or addition. Here’s why it’s a good idea:

  1. Just because a contractor is licensed and bonded doesn’t mean that they do good work. In fact, the licensed contractor may sub-contractors that actual work to one of his or her employees. Preferred Home Inspection follows up on the work to make sure that you’re getting what you pay for, and that the work is quality and up to code.
  2. It’s not enough to rely on city and county municipal inspectors. The inspectors all have more than they can do in a day. They are not looking at the level of detail that you would want for your protection. A municipal inspector’s job is to approve a project to go forward and to give it a final green light. A professional inspector makes note of whether the work is done right to meet today’s needs and last into the future.

Hiring us to inspect the work ensures that the all of the applicable components — electrical, plumbing, HVAC, attic insulation, foundation work, roof work – are correct and without defect. You don’t want problems down the road because of sub-standard work. You and your family’s health and safety may depend on holding a contractor accountable for his or her work on your home.
