If you’re planning a kitchen renovation, whether it involves replacing cabinets or increasing space, you may need property inspections. Most cities require them as part of their permitting process. Ideally, you should check with your city’s planning and development department before beginning any substantial home upgrades.
Property Inspections for Remodels
Depending on the project’s scope, having a professional perform property inspections during and preceding a remodel is essential, especially in the kitchen where plumbing and electric may need to be relocated to fit in with your plans. That is applicable, regardless of who is doing the work.
A certified inspector, like King Home Inspections, is responsible for making sure all work complies with your local building codes as a requirement of your permit. Checks must be made before the installation of framing, insulation, pre- and post-drywall, and new utility services per the City of Phoenix.
Is There Any Return on Investment (ROI)?
In most instances, yes! The room in which you cook in has the potential, according to Remodeling magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report, to retain value should you decide to sell. In 2020, a minor remodel in which the boxes are kept, but new fronts are added averages a 77.6% return on investment. In contrast, a substantial kitchen renovation involving adding cabinetry and countertops has an average ROI of 58.6%. Both projects include replacing appliances with energy-efficient models.
