Whole House Remodeling

Remodeling an entire house is rare in the City of Fairhope, because the City defines remodels as Level 2 (less 50%) or Level 3 (over 50%), which means if you add or expose more than 50% of the home, than the City requires the entire structure to meet the current codes. A Level 3 includes things such as 160 mph wind ratings, structural strapping from footing to roof, insulation, windows, HVAC, electrical, roofing, blower door tests, plumbing, etc.... basically a new home. So the game is to keep it less than 50% or be ready for expenses that might not be for everyone.
