New Construction Inspections
Most people who buy a new construction home believe that the builder will fix everything before they actually close escrow and move into the house. Many will try to do just that.
Unfortunately, a lot of people working on your home are responsible for a lot of different moving parts. As the home inspector, we provide some continuity for you, as the buyer, and the builder to make sure someone has a look at the whole home. We provide you with one consistent view of what is right with your new home, and what needs a little work.
You want your new home as close to perfect as possible before you move in, right? Your builder is just as anxious to make sure the house is right when you complete your walkthrough. We provide you with a written inspection report that very often becomes the builder’s CHECKLIST for getting all the last minute issues resolved, with minimal trips to your house once you move in.
11 Month Inspections
Most builders provide one last chance for anything that has cropped up throughout the first year of your builder’s warranty before the 12 month mark. At which time your builder’s warranty for the items covered for year 1 normally expires, leaving you the balance of the 2/10 Warranty.
The intention is the same as the new construction, to make sure everything looks and works as when it was brand new. As with the new construction inspection, the inspection report can be used as a “checklist” for your builder. So rather than rely on your memory for the checklist of items you may have noticed, why not have an inspector provide you with the real checklist?
