The Importance of New Construction Home Inspection
Assuming that you can dodge home inspection for a newly constructed house unnecessary is wrong. Building a house from scratch, customizing it for all your needs to match your lifestyle until you are satisfied doesn’t mean it’s flawless.
You have a bulletproof plan, an awesome builder with professional, highly experienced staff, and that one-year warranty that will cover construction defects. Also, city inspectors will make sure everything is perfect.
Getting home inspection sounds like an additional expense to your already expensive property.
Common Issues Found in New Construction Inspection:
When to Schedule New Construction Inspection?
Inspections are divided into three parts. The first part happens before the foundation is poured. Inspectors will assess the site’s excavation and grading or if the anchors and footing are properly spaced to ensure that everything is set for a strong and long-lasting home.
This means that at least 24 hours before the scheduled inspection, the foundation forms, rough-in plumbing, and reinforcement are completed.
The second part is called framing or “pre-drywall/ sheet-rock/ top out” inspection. New construction inspectors will check the beams, posts, studs, roofs and windows, as well as the other structural components if they are installed properly.
Take note that framing should be “substantially” complete to allow the inspectors to check the window flashing, rough-in plumbing, electrical wiring’s, HVAC and other parts that are generally hidden behind the walls will be properly installed.
You should also wait up to 40+ hours after the inspection before installing everything into place in case there are concerns to be addressed.
The final part of the inspection is checking the quality finish. All appliances should be installed and functional, including the HVAC this will make inspecting electrical problems easier. Aside from this, the visual aspects of your property will also be inspected. Refer to our General Home Inspection page for more information.
Some inspections such as radon, mold and termite inspections, water quality inspections, and well and septic tank inspections could be required and will need specialized inspectors.
