New Construction 3 Phase Inspection

New Construction (3 phase)

Most builders welcome quality control help. On average, over 300 individual employees / contractors are required to build a home. It is difficult to keep an eye on all of these people during the building process. Usually, homebuilders have several homes in different stages of completion at any given time. Be sure you are getting what you have paid for! Building plans are reviewed, inspections at three critical phases;

Foundation – Pre- pour of concrete inspection, checks for proper soil conditions, proper footing sizes, proper rebar (metal bar) tie construction, consult with the licensed plumber to check for proper rough plumbing location/installation.

Pre-drywall – Before the insulation & drywall coverings, I check for proper structure construction methods, including main beams, support posts, attachment bolts, flashings, roof, siding, trim, windows, doors, electric wiring & plumbing pipe protection plates, & backer block placement.

Finished – After all painting, trim, floor coverings, cabinets, countertops, faucets, water heater, HVAC components, & appliances installed, a thorough inspection performed to insure all components are operating as intended.

Note - An optional pre-expiration of the builders warranty inspection is available.
