Get the Best Inspection on Your New Home Build
Have you ever wished that your new home inspection went a bit more smoothly? After all, the construction process can be quite an ordeal, and it’s important to make sure everything is up to code. Don’t worry—Kissee Home Inspections is here to thoroughly inspect your home build through the entire construction process to ensure no stone is left unturned when it comes to your New Construction Inspection.
What is a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is a professional inspection of the structure and components of a new home to ensure that everything is in good working order. A home inspector will check all walls, floors, and ceilings for any damage or problems; they will also check all appliances, HVAC systems, water filters, and smoke detectors. A home inspector can also inspect for pest control issues and other possible problems that may need repair. If a home inspector discovers any problems during the inspection, they will explain them during the inspection and provide a complete report of their findings. The problems identified during the inspection should be addressed by the buyer or new homeowner before closing.
A home inspector checks for several things when inspecting a new home. First, it is important to remember that there are certain things that every home inspector looks for when inspecting a new home. A home inspector will check all major rooms such as bathrooms and kitchens, as well as crawlspaces, and attics. Observation points in a new home construction inspection include:
- Foundation / Slab Reinforcement
- Structural Frame
- Window & Exterior Door Installation
- Weatherproofing, Sheet Metal Flashings
- MEP Rough-In (Mechanical / Electrical / Plumbing)
- Roofing Assemblies
- Fire Block
- Building Envelope
Who Should Hire an Inspector?
There are a few key things to keep in mind when hiring an inspector for your new home build:
- The inspector should be qualified. A qualified inspector will have experience in the home building industry, know how to properly inspect homes, and have the appropriate licensing.
- The inspector should be honest. If there is something that the inspector finds that he or she believes is a safety issue, the inspector should let you know right away. By doing so, you can make an informed decision about whether to address the issue.
- The inspector should be timely. The inspector should be able to complete the inspection within a reasonable timeframe, so that you can have all of the information you need to make an informed decision about your new home build.
How to Prepare For an Inspection
Before you go ahead and buy a new home, make sure to get the best inspection on it. Inspections can help catch potential problems with your new home before you even move in, saving you time, money, and hassle down the line. Here are a few tips for getting the best inspection on your new home:
- Make a list of all the things you want to check during the inspection. This will help you prioritize which areas to focus on during the inspection.
- Schedule the inspection as soon as possible after you have completed all your paperwork and financing. Waiting could lead to missed problems or issues that need repair that may not be detectable in a later inspection.
- Ask your inspector to walk through all of the areas of your home with you, pointing out any concerns they may have. This will help ensure that everything is accounted for during the inspection and that there are no surprises when it comes time to sign off on your purchase.
- Ask your inspector to give you a complete and detailed report of their concerns, and be prepared to offer any additional insight you may have into the areas that were not completely covered during your inspection.
- Frame any issues found during an inspection so that you can more easily identify them when they are repaired or addressed. Help your inspector give you a complete report by taking photos or making notes on a copy of the report as it’s being given to you.
What to Expect During the Inspection
There are a few things that you can expect during your home inspection. The inspector will most likely walk around the exterior of the house and check for any obvious problems like broken windowpanes or shoddy construction. They will also inspect the roof, windows, doors, and other areas where there is potential for water damage.
The inspector will also look for any signs of pests or decay. If there are any issues with the electrical or plumbing systems, the inspector will note them on the report.
