Professional Inspections & Additional Services.

Do you know that in the State of Texas many homes are built every year in areas where no Building Authority exists?  Many Counties throughout Texas have no requirements for: (1) Plan check or Plan submittal, (2) Permit requirement, (3) Phased inspections of construction, (4) Final inspection at completion.  The State of Texas also does not require that a builder be a licensed contractor, have any liability insurance nor are they required to be bonded.  The architectural and engineering industry does all it can to put forth professional drawings and engineered systems, but, without (a)follow-up and review of the  conformity with drawings and codes, (b)systems that meet the issues for the location of the home or structure, (c)quality of the construction, (d)safety of the installed systems, (e)conformation that products and equipment are as listed by the drawings and specifications, then, the home owner/builder is faced with not knowing the true value and quality of the structure invested in.  Without these requirements the builder and/or the owner become the only people responsible for completion and quality of the new home or building.  Are you comfortable with this?
