New Construction Inspections

Above & Beyond Minimum Code Requirements

Builders employ dozens of skilled craftsmen to construct a home, but even skilled craftsmen can make mistakes. After all, a home is built from thousands of components, and those components must be assembled in exactly the right way. The mistakes made by builders and their crews may often go un-checked by a foreman who is typically busy trying to assure that the job gets done on time and within budget. Sometimes these mistakes can lead to serious problems with a home that may only be discovered later after the damage has made itself apparent.

By retaining a professional home inspector to inspect a newly-built property prior to moving in, also called a builder's inspection, you can catch potentially costly or dangerous construction-related problems at a time when it is easier for the builder to make the necessary corrections and repairs. In fact, it is highly-recommended that you retain your home inspector to perform two inspections. The first inspection should occur just after the framing and before the hanging of walls and ceiling. This will allow your home inspector to catch potential problems [primarily] with the assembled supporting structures. The second inspection should occur just prior to moving your possessions into the home. The will allow your home inspector to have uninhibited access to areas of the completed building so that entire, completed home can be inspected for damage or deficiencies in overall construction quality.

Getting a home inspection is not a luxury. In fact, a home inspection performed by a professional inspector will help you to determine whether not a buying or selling transaction will occur. It can also help you to monitor the quality of a home you are having built, and it can help you to catch problems while your home is still under warranty. In fact, the results of a thorough home inspection often provides both parties with the information they need to make the necessary adjustments in order to allow a transaction to proceed successfully.
