Communication is the key to our success. We are here to help
We believe all contractors and trades people get up every morning to build beautiful projects at fair prices. However; we all have a bad day sooner or later. We're here to help you through that bad day.
As building code officials we are expected to provide responsible and on time services to the building community of Berks County. Plan review, inspections and importantly, answering your questions. We also have an obligation to the homeowners, to insure they are being provided a safe and code compliant building project.
