US Department Of Housing And Urban Development Set Guidelines When Getting An Inspection
LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction Inc. (http://julianconstruction.com/) a foundation construction and foundation repair company in Southern California, urges homeowners to be careful when arranging a home inspection, in order to always find a fully qualified inspector. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has a large amount of information available on the subject, and has published a series of guidelines on the subject that they recommend homeowners to follow before and during the inspection process for any home repair or home foundation repair.
Julian Construction has found it common that homeowners get an inspection during the buying and selling process, as well as when determining if the house or house foundation needs repairs. Whenever a home inspection is called for, Julian Construction recommends the homeowner follow the guidelines laid out by the HUD to find a qualified inspector. A few of the points covered were:
• How long have you been practicing in the home inspection profession and how many inspections have you completed?
• Are you specifically experienced in residential inspection?
• Do you offer to do repairs or improvements based on the inspection?
• How long will the inspection take?

In the matter of experience, Julian Construction has over 10 years experience in the field of home and foundation inspection, and their team is headed by professional safety inspector Shawn Kyles who has inspected over 16,500 structures in his career. This has included many inspections of residential homes, and with enough experience in foundation inspection and foundation repair to ensure that nothing is missed during the inspection of a home’s foundation.
Julian De La Torre, founder of Julian Construction, stated: “We take care during the inspection process, because this is the step where if something is overlooked then it can cause problems down the road. Foundation problems are particularly important to handle in Southern California, where earthquakes are frequent. So it is vital for a home to receive regular inspections and have a well maintained foundation.”
