New Construction

View Sample Reports

A thorough inspection of your new home or building (during and after construction) will provide you with “quality assurance”–before you move in. A “Punch List” before the closing is the best leverage you will ever have to get things done right.

Many buyers of new homes consider an independent inspection unnecessary because the home is new, and there is usually a warranty and the assurances by the builder to fix anything they find that needs repair.

Examples of what we find in New Construction:

  • As well as poor workmanship, we find new homes with cement fiber sidings ( Hardie Plank the most popular ) that have not been installed to the manufacturers specifications. This will void the 30 to 50 year warranty.
  • Air leakage in the exterior sheathing that can lead to higher utility cost.
  • Insulation in the attic, walls and floors that does not meet the Georgia Energy Standards. Again, resulting in higher utility cost.
  • Rooms with missing air vents and poorly located returns, inadequately sized HVAC systems
  • Unsafe wiring and electrical preblems that undetected could result in a fire.

All of the above problems were in homes that had been inspected and passed by the local building officials and the job foreman as being ready for occupancy.

The written results from our independent home inspection provide you with much-needed "ammunition" to get the builder to finish the house properly. What's more, if pressed, most builders become highly motivated to complete unfinished "Punch List" items, especially if a buyer refuses to close on the home until the work is done.
