Is your home under the construction process? If you have a qualified contractor or home remodeling company working for you, you should be able to trust that they are getting the job done correctly and effectively. But if you’ve run into a few snags along the way, or problems keep coming up and costing you more out pocket than you expected, it’s time to take matters into your own hands. Here are a few things that you should consider before the final city inspection takes place.

 

Hire A Private Inspector

With home remodeling, especially large scale projects, you’ll have to pull a permit prior to a write off on the finished work by the city. The city inspection process is thorough and looks for flaws in the project to ensure overall safety to the homeowner and the community. If you’re really concerned about the work your contractor is doing, hire a separate home inspection agency to check all of the work that’s been completed. A home inspection will offer an additional set of eyes and professional opinion on the overall project. This could be a huge financial advantage, especially if a problem is found prior to the final city inspection walk-through.

 

Ask Your Contractor The Right Questions Along The Way

Do you trust that your building company is completing their jobs accurately? Could there be something that they miss as they complete a new plumbing or HVAC project? It’s always important to maintain a good working relationship with open communication throughout the entire construction process, explains the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Here are some points to keep in mind:

  • *Are any underlying issues being fixed prior to installing new materials?
  • *Will the new products that you’re installing be covered under a warranty?
  • *Did you use a sub-contractor to complete any additional work with this project?
  • *Are the products you’re using compatible with the existing materials in my home?

For example, if you are having a new patio or deck installed, make sure that the ground has proper drainage and is able to support the weight of the deck. While new materials are being installed, a sudden flood of water could make the ground unstable and cause the support beams to fail. The city inspector will most likely check for this. Failure to recognize these types of issues can cost you money in having to replace materials and add additional manpower to get the job done right.

 

Get A Checklist From The City

Not every city or village in every state has the same set of rules and regulations regarding their inspection policies and procedures. For instance, if you’re in a flood zone or you have a private water and sewer system, the rules may be slightly different. Prior to your contractor starting the job, visit the city for a complete checklist of what the inspector will be looking for. A minor checkpoint could be missed by your contractor and make an entire home improvement project a financial disaster. Bring the points up with your contractor as a friendly reminder of what you expect prior to paying his company for the completed job.

 

Get Input From Another Contractor

Are you having a new kitchen installed and the old one torn out? There are a lot of dynamics to remodeling a gutted kitchen. If you want to err on the side of caution, or you’re doing a lot of the work yourself, ask another professional contractor for a complete evaluation of the completed work. This may include:

  • *An electrician to go over the proper installation of new appliances, wiring and making sure they are connected to the proper outlet types.
  • *A plumber to review and examine the plumbing system connected to appliances, hardware and the sink in the kitchen.
  • *HVAC pros to inspect the function of the features of a commercial grade freezer or refrigerator system, as well as any new heating or cooling system duct work.
  • *Architects to analyze the dimensions of your additional or existing living space and how it may affect your home’s structure.

Having an additional opinion on installation of new items is recommended to prevent any unwanted surprises when you’re trying to wrap up the completion of your home improvement project.

Being safe rather than sorry when it comes to pricey home projects is vital to your finances. Be proactive when it comes to double checking everything prior to final inspection.
