Major home renovations are not only costly, they are potentially dangerous if not done correctly. Before you embark on a project that requires a considerable amount of demolition and construction, you may want to consider hiring an independent building inspector. Throughout the process, an independent inspector can also help to safeguard your investment. The last thing you want is a builder who cuts corners having free reign to make a mess of your home.
Protect your Investment
Staged building inspections are a great way to protect your investment. You want to ensure that the work is carried out to the relevant standards. These regular building inspections are carried out at key stages of the process.
It is much more difficult to correct some defects when construction has moved onto the next stage, and the inconvenience of enduring the stripping down of the defective work can be harrowing. It is always better to have these defects corrected before moving on to the next stage of construction.
An Impartial Ally
As confusing as it may seem, an impartial building inspector is your ally. Impartiality allows a building inspector to provide an honest, detailed and accurate report on the condition of the workmanship. The building inspector has nothing to gain from fabricating defects, making it easier for you to discuss any issues with your contractors.
When these issues are highlighted in language that is easily understood by the homeowner, discussions with industry professionals go more smoothly. Always choose a building inspector who values bridging that gap of communication. It will help you and your contractors maintain amicable relationships.
