Building a home or an office from the ground with your own specifications is every homeowner’s dream. This way, you’re sure you will be able to get exactly what you want.
But what you ought to know is that new doesn’t mean perfect. New constructions may sometimes come with pitfalls and issues just as any building in the market.
So, if you’re planning a new construction project, it is best to hire a construction inspector to monitor the progress from start to finish.
You may ask, aren’t the city/county inspections enough?
Yes, the city and county inspections are necessary because you won’t be able to occupy the building without them.
But they usually check if the building in progress meets the building codes but not get into the details about the building.
A new construction inspection is more thorough, accurate and every detail is inspected to ensure you get exactly what you paid for. So yes city/county inspection is not enough.
What is covered in the new construction inspection?
The advantage of this kind of inspection is you can catch the error while they are relatively simpler to fix at the builder’s expense.
A construction inspector will perform a series of thorough inspection which includes:
- Structural composition inspection which focus on the insulation and framing inspections, basement inspection and foundation inspection
- The roofing inspections
- Utility inspections which involve checking all major systems such as HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems
- The final inspections; it is more thorough because it entails inspection of the exterior and interior features as well as most of the above-mentioned parts of the building
Remember that having a third party doesn’t degrade your builder’s worth, it is simply an assurance that your building is safe, up to code and meets your expectations.
