Are you having a new home built just for your family? Congratulations!
This is an exceptionally exciting time. However, having a home built is a huge investment of your time and money. In other words, it’s something that you want to ensure gets done right.
Most builders work really hard to construct homes that are well-made using only quality materials. Still, builders are only human. Mistakes can happen. Errors may get overlooked.
That’s why it’s sensible to have a qualified, professional Pro-Spect inspector on site to ensure that your home is built to the highest construction standards.
If your home is in the process of being built, call Pro-Spect today. Ask for a pre-drywall inspection so that we can look for any problems that will be hidden as soon as the drywall is hung. It’s the best way to ensure your peace of mind throughout the construction process.
Many thousands of components go into every home, and these components may be installed by numerous different workers and subcontractors. It can take months to build a home from the foundation to the roof.
When seen from this perspective, it’s easy to see how some details might get overlooked. Usually, it’s just an honest oversight.
That’s where your Pro-Spect inspector comes in. With our knowledge and experience, we know what the best construction techniques look like. When we see something in a pre-drywall inspection that doesn’t meet industry standards, we point it out to the builder. Then, we work together to fix the defect.
The result is that our customer gets a home that they can trust is solidly built, safe to occupy and likely to last for decades.
It is absolutely true that the city or county will send out an inspector to take a look at the construction. However, these inspectors spend perhaps 15 to 20 minutes on the property. They are primarily interested in ensuring that the construction is in line with local building codes.
In the course of their work, they may see things that look like mistakes or appear to have been overlooked, but if it doesn’t violate any codes, they may not say anything. Plus, with only 20 minutes onsite, they don’t really have time to do a thorough walk-through.
The upshot is that some of the important details may get overlooked by an overworked municipal inspector.
The results are different when you ask Pro-Spect to examine your new home while it’s still under construction. Our inspectors are home construction experts, and they are adept at seeing the details that are likely to be overlooked by a municipal inspector. This means that minor issues can be corrected when it’s easier to do so.
Pro-Spect’s professional home inspectors are prepared to examine the exterior framing of your new home as well as verify the correct installation of doors and windows. We’ll also look at the heating, electrical and plumbing systems to ensure that they are properly installed and that problems are unlikely to arise when the drywall is installed.
Homes need to be solid from the foundation to the roof and from the inside out. Therefore, it’s critical to have an inspection performed even before the drywall is hung. It’s so much easier to fix these issues before the drywall is in place. After it’s hung, fixing these issues becomes more time-consuming, complex, and expensive.
Pro-Spect is a local company that specializes in all types of home inspection. Ask us today about having your home inspected while it’s still under construction. It not only ensures that your home is as solid as you want it to be but also that major repairs are unlikely to be required for years to come.
