New Construction Inspection Services

General Property Inspection

With todays challenging market a new construction home can check many boxes. Not having to view multiple homes, and make multiple offers not to get an accepted offer is a good start to this list. A newly constructed home is yours, and built the way you want it. If this is the route you have taken, “Congratulations”. With that being said, this is a word of caution.

There may not be a time in recent history harder for a builder to build a home. With skilled labor shortages as well as supply chain shortages with building materials, and increased material costs, builders are having difficult times.

This unfortunately affects workmanship. We highly recommend having the following inspections.

The three phases of new construction inspection are as follows

The Pre-Pour Foundation– This phase is so important because it is the last time the initial forms, beams, Post Tension cables, are ever seen. Once the concrete is poured it is too late. We also verify the foundation will be  level at this inspection

The Pre-Drywall Inspection– This inspection allows us to view the weatherproofing, and roof of the home. We also get to see for the last time much of the rough-in plumbing, electrical, A/C system, and structural framing.

The Final Inspection– This inspection gives us an opportunity to bring it all home, and make sure you know what issues have or may need to be addressed.

Common problems found in newly constructed homes include:

  • Plumbing fixtures not tested for leaks
  • An electrical box that does not work, and improperly sized breakers
  • Roof issues such as missing, damaged, or torn shingles
  • Improper insulation of the home
  • Improper installation of sidings
  • inadequate insulation in attics, walls, and basement walls in areas with colder temperatures
  • Air leaks and heat loss, as well as underperforming air conditioning units
  • A poorly installed flooring system
  • And other safety, function, and structural issues that require further evaluation from professionals
  • Improper grading and drainage in the yard
