Purchasing a new home also means buying that home's problems. With a pre-purchase home inspection you can see exactly what you're buying. Problems discovered during the inspection could allow you to renegotiate to offset the costs of repairs — potentially saving you thousands of dollars. I'll even help you become familiar with the property.
Having your home inspected throughout the building process is a sure way to guarantee that the builder and contractors are not skipping any corners.
The foundation is inspected prior to pouring concrete, the framing is inspected after all electrical and wiring is installed but before the drywall is hung, and a final inspection is performed once the house is completed but before the final walk-through with the builder.
Unfortunately, new does not always mean perfect. In fact, new doesn't even guarantee good. Material defects and human error during the construction process can lead to expensive problems later on. A new construction home inspection can help identify these problems early, when they're cheaper to fix. Some issues may even be covered under warranty.
Don't release your builder from their warranty until you've had your home thoroughly examined by an experienced inspector. An end of home warranty inspection is a great opportunity to fix problems from faulty workmanship or materials — problems the builder should be accountable for. Many items I find are difficult to notice and could become a major safety or financial concern over time, leaving you to deal with the mess.
