Keeping Your Builder Honest!

If you are building a home and you’re worried that the builder and their chosen contractors are cutting corners; I can help. I’ll work with you during the new construction | phase inspection process by providing on-site inspections at the most opportune times to evaluate and report on the installation practices for the major systems being installed. Using this process, I’ve helped my clients save thousands of dollars by having shoddy work corrected, as well as identified innumerable life safety hazards built into their home.

Phase Inspection Process

3-Phase New Construction Inspections

Step #1

Pre-pour Foundation Inspection

New Construction Phase Inspection

The first phase of the new construction inspection process starts when the home’s foundation make-up has been complete, and the builder is ready to pour concrete.

The purpose of the pre-pour inspection is to help spot-check the overall quality of work before the concrete is poured over the excavated beams, reinforcing bars, plumbing, & post-tensioned cable system.



Step #2

Framing Inspection

The second phase of the new construction process is conducted when the structure has reached the stage when drywall and insulation are ready to be installed.

The purpose of the framing or pre-cover inspection is to identify defective or sub-standard installation practices before the installation of the exterior cladding, interior insulation, and drywall occurs. Once those materials cover the interior & exterior of the home, the opportunity for inspection is gone! You do not want to miss the phase!

Step #3

Final Inspection

The third and final phase of the new construction process is conducted when the home is substantially complete, generally around the time the builder is prepared to do a final walk-through with the home buyer.

The purpose of the final inspection is to ensure the major systems and components in the home are installed in accordance with common model building standards & that there are no observable major defects present prior to your purchasing the home from the builder. The final inspection is vital & highly recommended.
