If you have a new construction project in your future and you’re on the fence about whether you should hire a general contractor or not, think no more, the answer is absolutely yes. A general contractor knows everything there is to know about construction projects, especially how to navigate red tape through the process. Crossroads Denver explains just a few issues that having a professional construction company on hand can make easier.
Crossroads Denver explains permits
Construction permits are also sometimes called building permits and are a requirement for every new construction project in a defined geographical area. They help to ensure that the city’s laws and building regulations are being followed with all projects. Crossroads Denver knows the permitting process inside and out, said it can be a nightmare for homeowners, and regularly helps their clients navigate these waters.
Crossroads Denver explains zoning
Municipalities typically have plans for development that govern what kind of buildings can go in what segments of a city. If your new home is in an established neighborhood, chances are that you won’t have to worry about noncompliance with your city’s zoning laws. If you’re building outside of town or repurposing a building within the city limits, you’ll have to pay close attention to these laws and an experienced construction company can help you do just that.
What to know about HOAs
If your new home will be built within an established subdivision, there’s a good chance you’ll be introduced to the world of the homeowners association. This group is charged with enforcing the rules set forth by the neighborhood’s covenants or bylaws. Sometimes these rules can be pretty specific on what you can and can’t do on your property, and Crossroads Denver is well versed in navigating these scenarios.
Everything you need to know about inspections
There will be several different types of inspections as your construction project moves along. Your bank will want to inspect the house at certain, pre-established checkpoints along the building schedule. In addition, it’s wise to hire a third-party inspector to come in twice during the project, once before the sheetrock goes in so that they can inspect the wiring and framing behind the walls, and a second time during your final walk-through and before you head to the bank to close your loan.
