Home remodeling is a big investment and choosing a company to work with is an important decision. The experience of the contractor should be a major factor.

With all the home improvement going on right now, today I wanted to talk about the importance of building inspection.
For the safety of your family and also to protect the investment in your home, you should always have work inspected and approved by your local building department. The city building official's job is to make sure the code is followed on major remodeling projects or even if you are just replacing equipment like water heaters, furnaces, appliances, or adding solar. Besides making sure your home is safe, the building inspector plays a part in protecting your investment by enforcing sound building practices.
Following the building code and obtaining inspector’s sign off protects life safety, and home improvement contractors are held accountable to abide by the California Building Code, where safety is the highest priority.
Chances are, any trade that is willing to complete work without a permit does not care about the building code, which puts you at risk and can impact you negatively when selling your home. The homeowner, contractor, inspection partnership is very important to the success of any home improvement project.

To be a legitimate home improvement contractor, licensing, bonding, insurance and EPA lead certification is required by law. Any contractor completing home improvements other than a sole proprietor, must carry worker's compensation insurance on all employees as well. General liability insurance is not required by law.
