If you’re buying a new construction home, you might assume that a home inspection isn’t necessary. After all, you had the house built from scratch and customized to your exact needs. Wouldn’t a home inspection waste your limited time and money? .
A New Construction Inspection is a third-party evaluation of a home’s structure, systems, appliances, and other important features. Sunshine States Best Home Inspection will evaluate your property, give you a report on all his or her findings, and you can then go to the seller (in this case the builder) to fix any desired issues before you close on the home.
In a nutshell, inspections can help ensure you’re getting a safe and hazard-free property, that you’re making a good investment, and that you won’t have tons of repairs to make before move-in (or worse, right after it).
The New Construction Inspection is the one you would have on any resale property—the one that ensures the home is safe for occupancy and has been finished per local code and building standards. Anything your inspector finds on this inspection should be remedied by your builder before closing.
New construction home inspections allow you to be proactive about your home purchase. On a resale property, you can only inspect the home after the fact—meaning all you can do is repair an issue or cover it up. With a well-timed inspection in your construction process, your builder can actually get to the root of the problem and remedy it entirely before the build goes further.
Remember, don’t judge a book by its cover. Just because a new home may look flawless to the naked eye doesn’t mean it’s perfect below the surface. Calling Sunshine States Best Home Inspection can ensure you’re making the best decision for your family and your finances.
At the 11th month of home ownership, the builder is still responsible for most defects. Did the builder call to remind you that your home warranty was about to expire? Most don’t provide this courtesy.
The first year of a builder’s warranty period is particularly important as the builder has responsibility for a broader range of defects during the first 12 months after purchase.
After a new home has been lived in for nearly a year, there can be signs of system or component malfunction, unusual wear and settlement which often go unnoticed by the homeowner.
While many problems may now be concealed, it’s not too late for defects to be caught by the trained eye of our inspectors. Our experience tells us that most major construction flaws go unnoticed for 3-5 years. By this time, correcting these flaws could cost many thousands of dollars, and the builder is no longer responsible.
