Building and Trade Inspections
If you should decide to remodel, add onto your house or business, we strongly encourage you to utilize a professional contractor who must be licensed by the State of Michigan. The contractor then pulls the permits, and once the permits are issued, the city’s staff of experienced inspectors will start the process of assisting you.  Through the various inspections, the city will verify that work is being done according to current building codes.  This is a distinct advantage to you, the homeowner, because you will be assured of receiving quality work and a safe final product.
