Speaking with a middle aged couple the other day a friend of a friend about a recent home renovation they had done and we come across an issue. They told me of some problems they were having and when I asked “Did you get any inspections?”, they looked at me strange. Paying good money for the remodel of a kitchen, bathroom and basement yet not one inspection. Before the wall goes up before anything was covered, inspections should have took place. Many contractors will not get a permit and go the process and it’s because of the contractor usually doesn’t have his paperwork in order, has something to hide or they don’t agree with the cost which on turn will cost the homeowner in the long run. Protect yourself, do the research and ask questions of those already in the business.
