ICC Certified Building Official & Inspector
As a building and plumbing inspector with over 20 years in the construction industry, I understand the struggles many go through when building or renovating.
The problem is that many people are not familiar with construction terminology and often lose time and money when doing things themselves.
I believe it should be simple for anyone to upgrade their home or any building, and not have to spend a fortune on general contractors.
That is why I created Building Code Tips: to make building codes simple to understand and simple to implement into any DIY project.
I hope you find the tips and tricks helpful and save a lot of money and time in the process!
Sometimes one tip from an expert can save hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.
Ever since starting Building Code Tips, my mission has always been to help people understand the basics in construction and feel confident that their home projects are being done correctly, avoiding costly mistakes or the frustration of having to re-do the work.
For that reason, I spent months creating detailed video trainings and guides to help equip people like you with reliable knowledge and trade-backed tips and advice to help you get your project done correctly, safely, and efficiently.
