In the Lawton area building inspections are only required inside the city limits. Outside the city limits no inspectors are required. Inside the city limits homes are inspected after each phase of construction by licensed city inspectors to ensure they conform to a strict set of local and national building codes. Outside the city limits there is no entity to enforce these codes and anyone can build anything they want without adhering to code. Due to the clay soil and high winds of Southwest Oklahoma, it is crucial to invest in a home that is designed to stand up to our unique geographical elements. City inspections cover every phase of the construction process to include but not limited to: building plans, foundation, framing, grading of lot to ensure proper drainage, electrical, plumbing, finishing fixtures and much more. This requires a lot of work for the builder but gives the buyer peace of mind knowing their new home is built to code and inspected for compliance. A Buyer purchasing a home outside the city limits can hire a home inspector but there are many items under the surface that a home inspector will not be able to see. The only way to truly know what you are investing in is to have a home built to code and verified by a qualified, unbiased third party throughout every phase of the construction process. That is exactly what you will get in The Oaks!
