New Construction or Phase Inspections
New Construction, Phase, and Reno Inspections
If you are purchasing a new home, the process can be stressful. Unless you've worked in the trades at some point, chances are that a construction site looks like not much more than unchoreographed chaos. And even if you have worked on construction sites before, chances are a lot of your house will be build when you are not on site. A few phase inspections go a long way to making this process easier and less stressful for both you and your builder, since we speak the language of both of you.
While you can have various inspections performed, the 2 most important are a "Pre-Drywall" inspection, after the framing and rough-in of the electrical, plumbing, etc, but before the drywall goes up. The second inspection we recommend is a "Final" inspection, just before you are ready to take the keys. This gives the builder a chance to take care of any punch list items before you move in. Even though you will have a warranty period, the inconvenience of work being done after you move it will far outweigh the cost of this service.
See below for a brief overview of what we do during these inspections. Your report will include photos of every defect observed so you can simply hand it off to the builder and let them take care of anything we find.
