Is your home ready for inspection? You might say that it is, however, the codes inspector may not see it as fully up to code. So what are you going to do to make sure that codes are up to spec? Here are a few tips that you can take to heart in order to make sure your house is fully prepped for the big inspection day.
The first thing that you can do is research just what inspectors will go over what the inspectors will be looking for. Look for things that haven’t been updated in a long time, like maybe your porch needs fixing or updating. Maybe there are some things you can do in your backyard, making it look pretty, removing stumps, weeds, items that could possibly harm you or your family by accident, such as metal fragments, roots above ground, etc. Also, check the interior of your house. You’ll want to look for water damage in your basement, possible damage to your water heater, etc.
The next thing you can do is go to your local county office and make sure you know exactly what codes you’ll need to know for your area because there are different codes for different areas. Being prepared in this sense will help you to pass with flying colors on your home.
