Things To Know Before You Buy

Before you purchase a substantial building structure, such as a carport, garage, greenhouse, sauna, or patio cover it is a good idea to do your homework.  Here are a few pointers for you: 

  • Find out from your local city office and home owners association if there are any specific permits you need to obtain, or any special building ordinances you need to follow.
  • With so many utility lines (gas, electrical, water, telephone, cable, etc) buried underground, call 811 before you decide where to build your structure.  It will prevent accidental damage to underground utilities in the midst of your project.
  • If you are not sure where your properties lines are, check your survey and make sure that the intended placement of your project is within your property boundaries.
  • You may be more comfortable to hire a local contractor to assemble your product for you.  Find out all the associated costs and related tasks before you purchase your product from Your Home Upgraded, to minimize surprises and set your expectations straight.
