Today is the day! Everyone at Permit-Check is excited to introduce the very first permit-blog.
Permit-Check has made great strides in supporting and aiding our clients. We have listened to our customers and have come up with some helpful services aimed to alleviate as much as possible, the stress and pains in the process of making safer, stronger and healthier homes.
Permit-Check stands out above other home inspection companies. We go beyond the average and provide complete disclosure which can give needed peace of mind to buyers and realtors. For the sellers it can give them the confidence in knowing that their home is safe for others to buy.
How is Permit-Check different from other companies??
Permit-Check, LLC is an original & unique business, which came about from the great need for After The Fact Building Permits (AFBP). Permit-Check was formed by Janyce Myrland of Dream House Drafting, Inc. and Tadd Rienstra of TJR Works! Permit-Check is not the typical run of the mill, permit router company. Our company provides detailed information with an actual on site inspection.
How Does It Work??
First we gather general information from you and/or your client such as: Name and Address. An appointment will be scheduled and payment for the services will be provided at that time or on the day of the site inspection. We do a lot of research and go through all the property records looking for whatever plans and permits that are available. Any documents found will be compared with the on site inspection which includes all the structures on a property.
All of this effort leads up to a comprehensive report containing photographs, highlighted floor plans and a recommended plan of action from our General Contractor at TJR Works! and our Architectural Design Professional from Dream House Drafting.
We work with the best in the business to have a design/ build package made especially for our clients. We can address the multi-faceted needs of our communities. Whether its for the Home Buyers and Sellers, Realtors, or those who need an addition or a remodel. We also specialize in designing and building brand new properties.
Our company has seen all kinds of different situations . We are knowledgeable about the permit process and have an understanding of how to deal with the stressful, unpleasant and difficult circumstances that many buyers and sellers have experienced.
How much does a Permit-Check Up Inspection Cost?
It’s $400 for the first 2,000 sq ft of structure plus tax. If a property has more than 2,000 sq ft of structure it’s $100 for each additional 1,000 sq ft with tax .
Recently we have added another company to the Permit-Check Family of Companies: Home Checkup. Home Checkup is our brand new full service home inspection company that has a variety of extra services including the opportunity to add an Permit-Check Up Inspection.
You can also order in the near future an Infrared Scan of the property which will show if the house has internal issues such as overheating and moisture.
There will also be other services provided for your property which can include a Home Health Checkup and a Home Energy Checkup.
Home Health Checkup is for full sample mold and allergen testing.
Home Energy Checkup evaluates your home energy usage and applies measures to help your property become more energy efficient.
You can also order a Preliminary Cost Estimate which provides a general idea of the cost of anything found on the property that needs to be corrected.
There is a variety of packages to choose from. These services can be bundled or ordered a la carte.
