"
and his team at
do excellent work and are a pleasure to work with. We hired Inch for a fireplace project in our" home: stone surround, custom woodworking, electrical, drywall, etc.. Additionally,
did a few other smaller jobs while onsite: installing plumping/electric for a new washer/dryer and installation of a new outdoor electrical outlet.
was always very professional and punctual. He took great pride in his team's work, and called me every night during the project to discuss progress and give me an opportunity to ask questions, etc. The quality of the work was really impressive, the custom woodworking was extremely well done and we're very happy with how the entire project turned out. I would highly recommend Inch for their quality work, attention to detail, flexibility with scheduling, and customer service!

"Wife and I decided we needed to move from the country into town and downsize at the same time. The project was completed on time, with every attention to detail." The president of the company was on site each day to supervise the build. They hired only the most skilled craftsmen who clearly were perfectionists. The home is a showcase. I'd recommend them without hesitation. JND

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.

unless you want to spend 6 months getting your mobile home installed. Owner
Fort Gibson Home Builders Provider Name Locked
has only one non English speaking employee working on at least 5 different jobs around the state. He got 5 code violations and had to pay for two re-inspections while installing my foundation, block skirting, and drainage. What with correcting code violations and not showing up for weeks on end I estimate three to four months of the 6 month ordeal were burned up by his delays. He had included in his proposal running the electric, water, sewer, and gas to the mobile home but due to the delays I hired another contractor to run those or the job would still not be done. On our first meeting I emphasized the foundation was going in an irrigated field and that fill dirt needed to be hauled in and compacted to build up the flood plane level. He added $1800.00 on our agreement for that purpose. However, when his worker showed up he just scraped off the area, set the forms and rebar, and was ready to pour the slab. I complained about him not using the $1800.00 fill dirt listed in our agreement not knowing the inspector had already red tagged the job "needing verification of flood plain requirements." He had to rip out the forms and bring in the fill dirt, compact, reset the forms and finally poured the concrete 3 weeks later. Other problems. He installed the tie

We were very excited about the floor plan, neighborhood, and initial feeling of comfort that they were an exceptional builder. As we went along in the process, we learned they cut corners, make promises, and use the same folk who can swing a hammer like everyone else and do not do quality work (lacking attention to detail, every detail). There are built in meetings with the buyer and Forman to review and approve different stages in the process, but having not built a home before, we were at a loss and left to their guidance and direction. Of course, everything we questioned, the Forman always had an answer disputing our question or request and explained why we were misinformed or didn't understand the home building process. As we would later find out, there are numerous items we would have elected to have, not have, or ensure installed if we had known those options were available, they would have slowed their build progress and not be so quick to get to the next home site. Toward the end of the build, we ended up getting the standard model stuff, you can see from the enormous lack of detail as if they were in the "just get it done mode. Some of the items that should have been made obvious for consideration to our livability were: placement of light switches, placement of light fixtures, placement of light plugs, location of electrical sockets, un-needed change request (paid for), shower shelves, towel rack location, four sided plywood instead of the Thermo Ply (cheaper for them), and on and on. Since move in, we have had to re-do, add to, or change several items at our own additional expense. To date, some of the major items we've reinvested in are the yard (landscape), sprinkler system, and HVAC system since completion, in essence paying for these items twice in 3 years. The sub-contractors they use are atrocious. For example, the lawn was planted with plants without any consideration given to growth, size, and location. So once they matured, we had to basically gut the jungle and replant. I'm sure the soon to be jungle was an oversight the "Landscaper" didn't know would happen. The sod was about 3 different type of grasses and installed with holes between most of them (causing a safety hazard). And who places a lawn sprinkler head behind a fire hydrant? The same type of dreadful work was also done by their HVAC sub.

's warranty work, although performed, was only patch work and is now showing signs of needing repair again on a 3½ year old house. Although not all inclusive, the above review gives a sense of our unhappiness and our resoluteness not to use or recommend this builder or his sub-contractors.

It is a long story. We gave him the right of way to build his great big home on 11 acres. He was nice at first, because he planned on building my home, which was built on the 55 remaining acres.

we've been looking for a custom builder for a long time and decided to go with them. So far, everything is going as expected. Custom homes are expensive. It's more expensive to build a home than to buy an existing home. That was an eye-opener to us, but so far, he's done a great job. He's done everything that he said he would. He's a very organized builder. We're waiting and seeing how the whole process works out. It's in the design phase right now. We're moving to the next phase in a couple of weeks.
