There are a lot of do-it-yourselves out there improving their homes one project at a time. This is a great way to customize your home, allow you to grow into a space, and keep it updated. But what do these DIY projects mean when you sell your home? Were they done up to code? Are the right permits in place? If you have a home with an addition, you should likely consider a Tampa home inspection to check that your home is up to snuff. A standard Tampa home inspection doesn’t typically look at construction work for code violations, so speak with your Tampa home inspector ahead of time to address your concerns.
If you have a Tampa home inspection to check for permits and coding violations on additions or new construction work, this can put your mind at ease whether you did the work yourself, hired a contractor, or are buying a house that has had work done. If you are currently living in the home and doing the work yourself, an inspection is still a great investment. The inspector is going to make sure you have done things by the book, which will save you a lot of time and money and make sure your house is safe. The great thing is, when you hire an inspector for this specific purpose, they won’t be searching other areas of the house. This means the inspection will not be as time consuming as a standard home inspection. If the work is up to code, you will be able to move forward with your project; if not, the inspector will point out any and all areas that must be addressed. This will catch things like faulty wiring, structural compromises, and more.
Remodeling or adding an addition to your home are huge undertakings that should be taken seriously. Hiring an inspector to check your work so that it is up to code during every step of the process means you won’t have to worry that the work was not done right.
