A New Construction Home Inspection is usually performed immediately after your new home has been built and is considered “ready” for occupancy by the builder and appropriate legal authorities (such as a zoning or code inspector). I will perform a complete inspection of the new home and components. Even though the components are brand new, my inspection procedures are the same as they are in older homes. It will include evaluating more than 400 items throughout the home. It normally takes me approximately 2 to 3 hours to complete this inspection, depending on the size of the home and the builder’s workmanship.
