Do I need smoke detectors to pass the inspection?

After your home improvement project is completed, an in-home inspection will need to be completed to close the permit.

Inspectors will be looking at the quality of the installation of your windows, siding, or doors. They will also take the opportunity to ensure your family is protected in the event of a fire or carbon monoxide leak.

View the following checklist and decide if you need to make changes to pass your inspection!

Is there a smoke detector in every bedroom?
Is there a smoke detector on in a common area of every floor of the house?
Do you have a carbon monoxide detector on every floor of your home?

Will your home pass the inspection?


Of course, these are just the basics.  For more information please visit your local city website and look for permits and regulations.
