It is important to evaluate the condition of newly constructed buildings before purchasing one. Although they seem to be a safe investment, there are many people with different specialties involved in building any new structure. A mistake anywhere along the way can leave a property with defects that can be expensive to correct down the line. A New Construction Inspection prior to final walkthrough with the contractor can identify issues with poor materials or poor workmanship so that the issues can be resolved before turning into bigger problems.
A New Construction Phase Inspection evaluates and reports on the ongoing process of building a new structure. Our Phase Inspections occur at four points during the construction: Pre-sheetrock, Post-sheetrock, Blue Tape, and Final Inspection. By examining the work as it occurs, we can identify potential issues before they are covered up.
Contractors often provide a one-year warranty against defects for certain materials and work. We recommend an inspection before this warranty on new construction expires, so we can verify that no issues have arisen in the time since the final walkthrough. This inspection allows owners to avoid bearing the financial burden of expensive repairs by having the builder correct any defects still covered under the warranty.
