New construction Inspections
A professional home inspection will substantially reduce your risk whether you're buying an existing home or building a new one.
Even new homes should be inspected by an unbiased professional. Many of the defects we discover as we inspect older homes date back to the original construction. Some builders cut corners and even honest builders make mistakes. Building a new home is a complex process and involves dozens of sub-contractors each working on different systems. It is nearly impossible to construct a home without something being missed. A new construction inspection can find those items that have fallen through the cracks and help provide peace of mind knowing that your beautiful new home is well built. A new construction inspection is especially important if you are one of the many home buyers who are out of state. We can be your local representative keeping an eye on your home's progress ensuring that your desires are implemented.
Some problems can only be discovered prior to the drywall being installed and others are discovered after the walls and ceilings are closed up. Thus, the reason why we offer two different inspections for new construction.
We offer two types of inspections. Choose one or both as there are different benefits of each type of inspection. When choosing both ask about our special package deal.
This inspection is performed following the installation of framing, plumbing and electrical rough-in and just prior to the placement of insulation and drywall.
