A pre-drywall inspection is a thorough examination of the frame and bones of a house, and electric and plumbing.
This inspection is the best time to catch issues such as truss work, framing, and mechanical concerns.
This is a great and ONLY opportunity to see behind the walls of your future home!
The pre-drywall inspection should be done after the close- in inspection from the government inspector and before the insulation and drywall is installed.
Allow 1.5 to 3 hours for this inspection.

The "final" or finish-out inspection let's you make sure the home is ready to move into, before you move in.
This inspection typically takes place a day or two before your walkthrough with the builder.
The final inspection should be done close to you taking possession (closing) on the home. All systems and appliances should be installed and working. The paper covering over flooring should be removed and the home should look completely finished.
We cover the mechanical systems of the home including your HVAc unit as well as the structural condition including your foundation basement, crawl space and attic. All general interiors are inspected including the ceilings, walls, floors, doors and windows.
Plumbing and electrical systems are also inspected including piping, the water heater and the fireplace and chimney if present.
We perform an extensive inspection of the exterior of your home and roof which other companies may not. We inspect the siding, drainage, grading, gutters and roofing. All inspectors carry 32 foot ladders to inspect and walk the roof.
Allow 2 to 3 hours for this inspection.

Also known as an 11th month warranty inspection, this is your last chance to catch anything that needs to be repaired while it's still the builder's responsibility to fix it. It's a great opportunity to save money in the short and long term.
For most home construction contracts you need to file the claims before the first year is out so we like to schedule these in the 11th month of that year.
The Warranty inspection is similar in scope to a Final Inspection or General Home Inspection.
This is your last chance to catch anything that needs to be repaired while it's stil the builder's responsibility to fix it.
Our team will inspect your property from the foundation to the roof and provide the report the same day.
Allow 3 to 4 hours for this inspection.

John Kerrigan was EXTREMELY thorough! He went into great detail for our home inspection. He also provided some excellent advice to us since this is the first time we are "building" a home. Kudos to John! We highly recommend John.
Unfortunately new doesn't always mean perfect...
...and costly major defects may be lurking in your new home.
