If a home has sustained damage that will need attention, they are reminded to seek proper repairs done to building and safety codes. In particular, if cracking is observed in foundations or chimneys, an expert inspection should be requested.
Brea's Building and Safety Division can provide information on this website about code requirements and offer information that will be helpful in understanding your scope of work. Some repairs may be do-it-yourself and others may require a licensed contractor. Please take time to gather essential information when planning any project.
