Question DetailsAsked on 9/1/2015

Is the gc responsible to get a final inspection on our home remodel and is it necessary?Are their ramifications?

We live in Irving TX. and are finally at the end of our family room remodel. Our contractor has sent us a bill for work his electrical sub did on our project. The problem is we ended hiring a different electrical company after we noticed the builder basic can lights he was going to install. We hired a licensed lighting engineer and he recommended led lighting throughout. Therefore we asked our contractor to submit a bid for the reworking and install of the led lights and we also collected a bid from a second source. Not surprising he was double the price, so we did not reward him the job. The new electricians were reported to the city permit department so the permit could be updated. Fast forward 3 months later the electrical job is completed and throughout this entire time we have not seen or heard from the contractor. I contacted him and asked if a final inspection is necessary but he was very vague and didn't give me a straight answer. Is it necessary and why?

Presume you saw this response -

On the permit - you will have to sort out what work the GC did and what the new electrician did with respect to any deficiencies, or you will have a fight over who is responsible for making them right.

IF an inspection is required in your areas, be sure to get it - both to give the job a clear record, and as ammo if needed to present a deficiency list to the GC or electrical contractor.
