Experts recommend a home inspection - EVEN IF your new home comes

with a warranty!  Inspecting at the pre-drywall stage, and then again just

before completion, protects you from surprises and helps ensure that

the builder provides the best quality home possible.

There are good reasons to have a professional inspection performed on the brand new home you are buying.


Buying a new house will probably be the largest purchase decision you will ever make. The whole process can be filled with emotion and stress. A professional home inspection will reduce the risk for your large investment.  It makes sense to learn as much as you can about the quality of your new home before signing off on everything.


Building a new home is a complex endeavor. It involves many people, usually split up

into sub-contractor groups, each working on different parts and systems of the house.

Even for the best builders, it is nearly impossible to complete this process without

missing something. Maybe it's a plumbing fixture that did not get tested for leaks,

maybe it is an electrical box that is not working or any one of dozens of minor

problems that can easily be overlooked in such a major undertaking. We will find

such problems while it is still early enough for you to bring them up with the builder

and have them corrected before you sign-off and start moving in.


For a relatively small investment, a professional inspection of your new dream home can pay big dividends for your peace of mind.  It is your opportunity to identify problems and correct them.
