Why are inspections needed?

Inspections are a necessary part of any construction process, to ensure that structures comply with construction and zoning codes. These codes are designed with the health and safety of both the community and individuals in mind. It is imperative that shelters and safe rooms are placed and installed properly. Failure to comply with the required inspections, zoning code, or building code is a punishable offense under local and state law.
