New Construction Inspection

New Construction Inspection

Reasons why you should get a new house inspection

The road to house ownership is an exciting journey and you’re likely to miss the flaws or defects, in the heat of the excitement. A new house inspection will apprise you of issues or concerns that need looking into if you’re to enjoy a perfectly comfortable life within the new property under your consideration.

1. Unveiling the Unseen
During the process of building a property, even the most experienced builders may fail to notice potential flaws or code breaches. Skilled new home inspectors have the ability and training to spot problems that might not be noticeable to a casual viewer.

2. Ensuring Structural Soundness 
A new home inspection is rigorous and extends beyond the usually ‘visible’ surfaces. These experts make it a point to check the foundation, walls, roofing, and other important parts of the house for structural soundness. Early problem detection will help you avoid more expensive repairs in the future.

3. Identifying Safety Concerns
A home that’s aesthetic and comforting will prove to be a worry if it isn’t safe. New home inspectors will carefully examine the HVAC, plumbing, electrical systems, and other crucial components to make sure they are operating safely and in accordance with regulations.

4. Protecting Your Investment
A brand-new home is a significant investment. Early problem discovery allows you to bargain repairs with the builder or take them into consideration when making decisions, thereby safeguarding your financial interests.

5. Peace of Mind
New home inspection services enable you to move into your new home with greater peace of mind. You and your family will feel more secure knowing that potential problems have been found and fixed.

New Construction Inspection Phases

The process of new construction inspection can be categorized into a series of phases, each having its own focused objective.

Phase 1: 
Pre-Pour Foundation Inspection

The stability of your home is anchored by its foundation. The Pre-Pour Foundation Inspection is performed before concrete is poured into the foundation. Qualified inspectors will carefully go over the foundation drawings to verify precise measurements and appropriate excavation. This phase lays the basis for a sturdy foundation that will sustain your dream house for many years. 

Note: In most cases the foundation is already poured when a buyer has gone under contract to purchase a new home, in this case I will evaluate the foundation during the completed pre-drywall inspection and identify any issues that should be addressed.

Phase 2: 
Pre-Drywall Inspection

The Pre-Drywall Inspection is performed before the walls are sealed. The inspectors will examine the internal infrastructure during this crucial stage to make sure everything complies with industry standards, from insulation and construction to plumbing and electrical systems. This includes that the appropriate fasteners and locations are used, nailing guards to prevent damage to plumbing, HVAC and electrical are installed as well as a 360-degree photo taken at each room so you know where your utilities are located during future repairs and remodels.

Phase 3: 
Final Inspection 

Final Inspection makes sure that every component of your dream home satisfies the highest standards of quality as construction draws to a close. This phase covers everything, from fittings and finishes to safety precautions, and ensures that your new home is not only aesthetically attractive but also secure, practical, and long-lasting. This inspection is similar to a traditional home inspection except for issues that would come under the new home warranty and quality of workmanship will be documented.
