"Turned out to be a horrible nightmare which unfortunately is going to end in a lawsuit against the contractor. The project was to be completed
" 31, 2014. Contractor was fired in
2015 because work was still incomplete, persistent problems (leaking roof was still leaking after 3 "fixes"), blatant
, workers disappeared for weeks on end (we later found out why -- the subcontractors and employees were unpaid and/or had bounced checks.) Most importantly the subcontractors were unpaid. Some only received deposits. As a result we received several notices of Liens.
was very unresponsive. Stay away at all costs.

"Passed by one of their job sights while strolling the neighborhood. I was highly impressed with what I saw. Got a quote on brick stoop restoration and bathroom renovation." I didn't have a huge budget to start with. I appreciated Shaiful's generosity in giving me time to make arrangements. Loved the bathroom demo they provided; (I had a multitude of options to choose from). They took all precautionary measures throughout the entire project. Superb team!

Yes, but you won't like what will probably happen (this is a worst case scenario, hopefully you will avoid most):

The purpose for a building permit is to ensure meeting the minimum standards for construction practices and minimum safety standards.  A contractor who works without a permit, does so because they know they are not in compliance (and to save money at your expense).  They knew they should have had inspections and permits for their work.  Who ever built the addition should be reported to both the building official as well as the Better Business Bureau.  It is ultimately the homeowner who is responsible for ensuring the proper permits have been applied for, though.

So when you apply for your permit, you will be pretending as if the work is not completed (you do not hide this fact, you just have to follow the correct process as if it hadn't been built).  Your first stop will be with zoning; can you even add an addition, do you have the proper clearances from the side, front and rear property lines.  If it is a bedroom, does the septic system (perk test) support an additional bedroom.  If your building already meets or exceeds the amount of building allowed on the site or if you do not have the clearances required from the property line, your addition may be required to be removed.  There are appeal processes and variance requests you can try before tearing down the addition (Get an architect).

If your zoning review is fine, next you go to permitting.  Here you will submit plans (drawings) of what was built.  If you do not have these plans, consider hiring an Architect to generate As-Built drawings for this use.  Hopefully the plan review comes back with no changes, or you will alread know your addition is not in compliance and may face rebuilding.  Depending on the type of construction, your zoning and your local building requirements, you will be required to have inspections of your foundation / footings, the framing, the electrical, mechancial and HVAC systems, etc. affected by the work. 

This may require digging the ground back up so the inspector can confirm foundation depth, size and draingage requirements.  The interior wall finishes (gypsum board, panelling, etc) may have to be removed in some or all areas so the framing and electrical can be inspected (If one area fails, be prepared to pull all areas down).  At each inspection, if the work is found to be lacking, then you will have to correct the work before getting permission to use the room.  If there is an electrical or safety violation found, it is possible the Building Official could declare the entire property inhabitable until the offenses are corrected (IE you are homeless until it is fixed).

As you can see, you have to hope beyond belief that the builder constructed everything correctly and that the building officials will work with you to minimize the amount of deconstruction necessary to inspect the work.

Also, you will be charged all the fees associated with plan review and permitting, and you will be charged for each inspection visit (as your builder would have been charged initially had they followed the law).

As for value, here is the real concern:  If your home burns down or faces some similar disaster, your home owners insurance will balk at paying; they will blame the illegal construction as the cause.  As for the value of your building, not having a permit will make any buyer have a difficult time getting their own insurance, thus harder to sell.  The room itself will add value to your property, if it isn't a hazard (IE permitted). 

Also, taxes are based upon assessments, which use the land records.  Building without a permit, can be seen by local officials as an attempt to avoid paying property taxes, since the land records do not show the addition.  Until the official tax records reflect an accurate statement of your building, you may face fines, tax fees and other costs associated with the improvement depending upon how long it has been there unreported.

You may wish to contact a local, licensed Architect who works with the local building department.  They will know the personel, know which forms you need to fill out first and how to protect you from an overzealous Building Official (there are exceptions and options within the Code that the Building Official may forget or ignore that an Architect can request be used to prevent tear down or damage).  Next time you go to build get the Architect first to protect yourself from what this construction firm did to you.

Good luck!

Unfortunately this is not something you will easily resolve; and even if you were to win, the amount of time and funds spent will probably exceed the cost of the actual repair.

Each state has different rules on what "as-is" means, but almost all use the term when it comes to realestate sales.  At two years, you are facing a hurdle that any issue could be the result of new conditions, acceptable wear / settlement, etc.  Has there been any changes in the area? (New house built next door, new addition, earthquake, flooding, etc?)

While you may have been given a home warranty with the purchase (do check your sales paperwork to see if there is any warranty and what it covers for how long) the house is sold to you as-is; it is your responsibility to raise concerns prior to taking over the house, so going back two years later is a huge up hill batle.

The home inspector is also going to be found faultless, as their reports almost always have words like "consult with an expert. . ." after each report section and they have disclaimers for missed items, etc. I got certified as a home inspector and was surprised at just how little they actually require you to know to become an inspector. They are really just an extra pair of eyes to help inexpereinced home owners look where most people don't look or go.  You even mention that the repair work was well masked, so you didn't notice it until you began looking for it.  A good inspector might have caught it, but you won't win any court cases proving yours wasn't good enough.

The Seller will claim that any foundation issues were fixed and resolved, which is why they marked "No" on the foundation issue section.  They fixed it; so it was no longer an issue.  If it came back, that is a new issue.  You and I know this is bogus, but to win in court you have to prove intent; and the builder can easily show they thought it was fixed.  Or, they might even be able to claim they were unaware - the repairs were from the previous owner, and were hidden so well HE and YOU didn't notice them.

So the next step is to meet with your home insurance agent.  As I mentioned above, if there have been any enviromental changes (a new house next door could have changed the underground water table flow or pressures, for example) you may be covered.  Even if there are no issues, you still may have a policy that allows for major repairs to be covered after a certian cost threshold, etc.  You'd be surprised at what your home owners insurance covers - find out first; they might have in house or low cost engineers who will do the initial inspection, etc.  They also will provide advice on your home sale; if they think you have a case against the Seller.

Best of luck on this issue.  Make sure any solution you pay for solves the cause (Stress on the wall), and doesn't just fix the results (cracks).

"Like a sunroom" indicating the addition has yet to be built?  If it's just a remodel there are several remodeling contractors to choose from.  If you also need the addition built pick a general contractor with experience building new construction as well as additions.  If s/he provides a price before the plans and specifications are on paper drop them like a hot potato.  They don't know what they're doing.  Whether they have the ability to provide the plans and specifications first or they refer you to an architect you must have plans to properly bid a major remodel or addition.  It is also good practice anyway just to make sure both parties are on the same page and understand exactly what will be done.

Just a note about the "type" of contractors described in another answer.  The one's who do most or all of the work themselves are not very profitable without doing something illegal or cutting corners somewhere, if they finish the job.  The time a contractor spends on a job takes away from the office time needed to run a proper business and chase new leads to keep working after your job is finished.  There are honest people out there who do everything themselves and don't need to make much money in a year but they are few and far between, typically retired and so the work as a means to keep active and make a little side money.  Others try to do a couple of jobs at once and rob from the funds of one to help pay for the other.  They just aren't experienced enough and were probably sub-contractors who suddenly thought they could run the show.  I've seen it repeatedly.  They hit up the customer for more money due to their own budget planning or abandon the job because they aren't making any more money.  be leary of a contractor who does not either use an employed or sub-contracted crew, meaning they manage the project's quality, time, and money distribution.

FYI: CPVC and PEX are two different materials and installed differently.  PEX is not intended to be glued but instead has special crimp fittings.  PEX is a brand name of one product that is manufactured slightly differently by others as well so it is important that the same brand fittings are used to match the pipe material.

Mobile homes used CPVC for years and some still do.  It works fine but is not as strong as a properly soldered copper pipe system.  Is the contractor installing this new plumbing a licensed plumber?  I'd be surprised if he is since he's using CPVC and not PEX (or similar) or copper.  PEX pipe is even cheaper than CPVC when run by a knowledgable plumber.  It doesn't require nearly as many joints since it comes in rolls and can flex through spaces easily.

There are some groups raising a fuss about BPA and other chemicals found in plastics that don't like the use of CPVC, PVC, or PEX pipe.  I haven't seen the results of any lab tests to confirm or dispute their concerns.  As far as durability goes it's fairly safe as long as it's properly installed and secured.  It is not as susceptible to hard water damage as copper.  It absolutely must be insulated along it's entire length to protect it from contact to other materials as well as freezing.  Also, the fixtures in the house need to be grounded electrically since the pipe itself provides no electrical protection against accidental shock or electrocution.  In a copper plumbed house the system is grounded so static electricity, a short in a wire near a water line, or lightning strike will carry the current out through the pipe instead of through the water to you, ideally.

If it's installed correctly you should be fine but make sure the contractor knows what he is doing and follows the proper procedures to use CPVC pipe.

the building process was horrible. Example: stairs built and then torn out, rebuilt, walls in the wrong place, shoddy workmanship. Uneven tile floors. Some of these things were fixed after a fight. Poor communication by supervisor. Leaking in roof, several areas including kitchen & bedrooms.
After close: major leak in 1 bedroom that was "fixed" under warranty - it is leaking in the same area again into the BR wall. Calls to

-someone came out a month ago-we've heard nothing since.
Other problems in the last 5 years- leaks in kitchen plumbing, cracks in master fiberglass shower floor-not supported correctly-had to be replaced, we chose marble this time-our expense 2000+. Last spring our under mount sink FELL OUT! We replaced it , the man who did it said he'd never seen anything so poorly done.
This is a short list of the problems we have encountered. There have been others as well.
Most aggravating is the attitude of pretty much everyone has - in other words(these people are a pain) if we ignore them long enough they'll go away. The only person that seemed to care & be responsive was the man sent to try to fix the messes.
I could never recommend

These guys were the best I have ever dealt with. Once estimate was done they were out at earliest date and worked efficiently and were just great group of guys. Returned my calls same day every time we called them, very friendly and easy going group of guys. Double checked everything with us before installing. Explained how everything worked and why something wouldn't work and even gave suggestions to make porch better and we listened and we love our porch. I will be using them for all my home construction needs as they are just wonderful. I highly recommend them to everyone. They were in the middle on prices that we received from other contractors but it was money very well spent. Paid in 3 installments as is the contract agreed upon. 1/3 up front, 1/3 half way through and then final payment. porch was done in less than 3 weeks with the weather. cleaned up every single day and never left any mess at all. we never had to remind them or call them for any complaints since we never had any. the guy who gave us estimate came out often to check and make sure guys were doing good and to just chat to see if we were happy or needed to add anything. During lunch breaks they would socialize with us. Left all extra materials here for us to use as we saw fit since we paid for them. Came back out a few weeks later to make sure everything was ok and to replace a few boards that cracked. No questions asked. On time ever day.
I can't praise them enough

Went extremely well. There were few unanticipated changes (only those that absolutely could not be known prior to demolition). Teams showed up when expected. Did the work with speed and intense quality. These guys are VERY good. I will use them again.
Ended up with a gorgeous "new" home.

, two of the most accommodating people to work with. These guys are not about the money, like most contractors. These guys not only did a nice job but were more than reasonable with the pricing. No job is too small with them. I find that they are like family with us. Very hard workers and this is a second job for them as they also work at the Hyannis hospital as well. I would call them anytime to do work again.

bid the job, and explained all his bid covered. He let us know where there were things where he could not assess the damage, so that he would not know the total cost until the project was started. He always gave different cost options, and explained the pros and cons of different building materials and different repair methods. We were involved through the whole thing.
He cleans up after himself, and is very conscientious. He has referred us to others (we needed an electrician, and an hvac person), and those people have been great as well. One room that he painted was a very bright yellow. Amazingly, yellow paint does not cover well. He had bid the job, and had to do TWO extra coats to get the job finished to his satisfaction (confirming that we were happy, too). He did not charge extra for the extra work.
The newest project is a cedar closed in our basement. He has bid the job, and delivered the materials. It will be completed next week. As usual, the bid is complete - clear on what is and is not included.

C & T Home Improvement repaired a botched bathroom remodel that was done by another contractor. From the first meeting for a quote, to the complete finish of the project, they were nothing less than excellent to deal with and their workmanship was of the highest quality. They went above and beyond to help me understand the process and always stopped and asked us when encountering a decision that needed to be made. The owner and his employee’s were always very respectful of me and all of my needs. We highly recommend them for any tile or construction job. Please contact us for further information if desired.

and his team have such a good reputation that they don't need to advertise. I ask for his next available slot and wait until they are free. Over the past 12 years they've done three major projects and always were reliable, addressed and resolved problems and unexpected hiccups that are bound to happen with old houses and very pleasant. They also are master carpenters, so if you need carpentry done, they can do that as well.
Every project they did they were there all day, daily, until it was done. our first kitchen, about 12 years ago, they were done the full renovation, including demolition, etc in 2 weeks, the shed to office conversation was under 3, the most recent kitchen 2.5 weeks. My advice is, if you can wait for a time slot they are free, wait for them, it's worth it.
