Permits and Plan Checking Are Not A Problem
RWT Design & Construction
Here at RWT Design & Construction permits and plan checking are easy! Most people are worried about this process because they think it will be long and costly. The truth is it is good to have those extra set of eyes on your project, it is their job to ensure nothing was missed or nothing was done substandard and everything was up to code. We work closely with the city inspector and plan checker while working on our projects. We have a very good rapport with them. Years of work well done doesn't go unnoticed. We are known for doing our jobs the right way the first time!
A good thing for home owners to know regarding permits and substandard work is when you want to sell your home there is a whole process you go through. You get a realtor to help you get potential buyers. Once you reel in a potential buyer there is still a laundry list of things needed to get done before the deal is done. One of those things is the potential buyer will get an inspector to check the entire property to look for any problems with the house. If there is any un-permitted/substandard work done the buyers will possibly either back out because of the liability of the un-permitted/substandard work done or the asking price of the house will have to be renegotiated because of the liability of the substandard/un-permitted work. So basically, the worth of your house will only increase with permitted/standard work done on your home whether an addition or remodel. So it really does pay to do things right the first time.
Here is the links to Building & Safety, where you pull permits for you home and find out what permits have been pulled for you home over the years and see the rescent activity on your home.
Here is the link to the County Assesors Office, where you can find out about your property. You can get all the records pertaining to your home that includes diagrams of the building, additions and all the history from inception. This can help when trying to permit unpermitted spaces.
Here is the link to the California State License Board, where you can check to make sure the contractor you are planing on using is fully licensed. You can also check their workers comp and you can find out wetherr there license is expired, revoked or if they are in good standing or not currently.
Here is what a recent home owner said about our work:
"We had heard many horror stories from our friends and family about city inspectors and the permit process so we were worried the whole process would be long and painful. But it was all so easy with RWT. The inspector even was impressed with the work done and was excited to see the progress on my home. Romney and his crew were quick and efficient and had excellent workmanship! I was very impressed with both the work and smoothness with the city inspectors and plan checkers. My experience was great!
Thank you! And I love my new kitchen and bath!"
