Our phase inspections of a new home will consist of the following:

  • Pre-Concrete Pour Inspection: This inspection is performed after the foundation forms have been set, but before the concrete is poured. We will inspect the forms, post tension cables, vapor barrier, placement of drain lines, and more; to make sure that everything is in place per the builders plans, before the concrete is poured.

  • Pre-Drywall Inspection: This inspection is performed after the framing, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC rough-ins have been installed, but before the drywall has been installed. We will take a close look at all the framing members, water supply lines, drain lines, and more; before everything is concealed and covered with drywall.

  • Final Inspection: This inspection is performed right before the builders walk through, once the home is near completion. We will complete our standard home inspection to make sure that everything has been completed and is functioning properly before you move in.

11 Month Warranty Inspection

After putting your new home to the test for 11 months, there might be a few things that need attention. Our 11 month warranty inspection will provide information about items that need to be addressed before the warranty ends. We will complete our standard home inspection and document our findings so that you will have a report to give to your builder.

After repairs have been made, we can come back out to the property to perform a Re-Inspection to make sure that the repairs had been properly performed and completed. We can re-inspect a few items, or all the items listed on the original report; whatever you need!
