Final/ Finish Out Home Inspections
Your home is built, the counters are sparkling and the open space invites you to move your furniture in, but you haven’t sat down at the settlement table yet. That’s where a Final or Finish Out Inspection comes in.
Carpenters, electricians, plumbers, and teams of contractors have all worked on your home. One team of contractors hands off work to another team and then to another team as each contributes to your house. There are thousands of moving parts in that process and some of them will need attention by the end no matter how diligent the builder and each contractor are.
Common Final Defects
The builder can get this cracked glass fixed easily.
The Final home inspection generally takes place a few days to a week before settlement. It’s a good time to find any issues you’d rather not live with. It’s also the first opportunity to have a home inspector walk your roof, which is very important because the builder and municipal inspector probably won’t. Fixing the roof and other issues now will prevent costly problems later on.
This inspection will take about three hours and you’ll receive your written report the same day. Our written report is organized for your discussions with the builder. We keep the big ticket, builder responsibility items upfront so you don’t have to go on a scavenger hunt through the whole report. We also photograph any defects we find so you and the builder can easily identify the priority areas.
Whether this is our first time inspecting your new house or the second new construction inspection because you’ve taken advantage of our bundling options - we conduct an extremely thorough home inspection.
We will check:
The exterior, roof, interior, attic, heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical, and much more.
