New Construction Home Inspections
Why Do You Need a New Construction Home Inspection?
Many people mistakenly assume that a new construction home doesn't require an inspection because everything is brand new. However, this is not always the case. Even the most experienced builders can make mistakes or overlook certain aspects of construction. By investing in a new construction home inspection, you can have peace of mind knowing that your dream home is built to the highest standards and meets all safety regulations.
Our new construction inspections are typically performed in 3 phases....
The 3 Phases of New Construction Inspections
Phase 1 - Pre-Pour Foundation Inspection
This inspection takes place before the concrete is poured for the foundation. The purpose is to ensure that the site has been properly prepared, the footings and foundation walls are correctly constructed according to the approved plans, and the necessary reinforcing steel is in place. This inspection also includes verifying the installation of any required plumbing or electrical conduits before they are covered by concrete.
Phase 2 - Pre-Drywall Framing Inspection
The pre-drywall framing inspection occurs after the framing, roofing, windows, and exterior doors have been installed but before the interior walls and finishes are in place. The inspector checks the structural integrity of the framing, including walls, floors, ceilings, and roof systems. They ensure that the framing is done according to standard building practices. This inspection also includes assessing the installation of insulation, ventilation, plumbing, electrical rough-ins, and HVAC systems.
Phase 3 - Final Inspection
The final inspection is conducted when the construction is complete and all systems, finishes, and fixtures are in place. The inspector examines the overall condition of the property, including interior and exterior elements, plumbing, electrical systems, HVAC, insulation, and any other applicable components. This inspection ensures that the new construction is ready for occupancy and meets current safety and building standards.
