New Construction

New construction inspections are typically done in phases.  As many as twenty-five to as little as one inspection can be done.  It depends on what the home buyer wants and what the budget can afford.

The most common new construction inspection is the 3-phase.  That encompasses the building footprint layout & slab, the pre-drywall installation, and the final walk through.  In addition we can, if needed, slip in a single item inspection at a reduced fee, between those bench marks.

To summarize:

  1. The slab/foundation inspection-This checks the building footprint, steel placement, stub-outs of plumbing & electric, proper compacting of soil, proper placement of barriers & soil treatment, etc.
  2. The Pre-drywall inspection-This checks the framing, walls, rough-ins of plumbing & electric & HVAC, proper anchoring of trusses, roof sheathing, roofing if present, windows & doors, siding, etc.
  3. The Final-This is the culmination of the process where we check for installations of systems and components, appliances, tile work, any & all finishes that reflect the quality of work.

I have a lot of experience looking at new homes as I was a contractor during the 70’s, 80’s & 90’s.
