NEW CONSTRUCTION

A brand new home shouldn’t have any issues, right? We wish this was true…

Any home can potentially have problems, and newly built homes are no exception. Our inspectors have uncovered issues as minor as cosmetic damage that was overlooked, and things as serious as the foundation not having the correct thickness or the home missing insulation entirely. Having a third party inspector on your side helps to make sure the builder is fulfilling their duties and meeting your expectations. Take a look at some of the things we’ve found:

What can we do to catch these potential issues? Inspections during each phase of the home’s construction:

1. Foundation Pre-Pour Inspection

This phase consists of a site inspection including rough grading and vegetation/debris that may impact structure and the foundation.

Pre-slab pour inspection
Pre-drywall inspection

2. Pre-Drywall Inspection

This phase is completed after the rough framing has been installed along with the plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems. The pre-drywall phase is one of the most important since it allows us to discover potential issues before they are “hidden” behind the drywall.

2. Pre-Drywall Inspection

This phase is completed after the rough framing has been installed along with the plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems. The pre-drywall phase is one of the most important since it allows us to discover potential issues before they are “hidden” behind the drywall.

3. Final Inspection

The final inspection is usually performed prior to the final walkthrough, and is similar to a comprehensive residential home inspection. We inspect the home in its entirety and test the major systems including the electrical, plumbing, and HVAC to ensure they work properly.
