Welcome to our blog!
We want you to be an informed homebuyer, and each blog post is a question that we have answered for our friends and customers over the years. Hope they help you make a good choice for your next home.

  If you are replacing ceiling fans as part of a project that requires a building permit and inspections, the inspector will verify that the fans you install are correctly rated for where they are installed. But, even if there is no building inspector looking over your shoulder, getting a fan UL-approved for where you are installing it will save you from premature corrosion and failure later—not to mention, droopy blades.

While we hope you find this series of articles about home inspection helpful, they should not be considered an alternative to an actual home inspection by a local inspector. Also, construction standards vary in different parts of the country and it is possible that important issues related to your area may not be covered here.
