New Construction Inspection Services

New Construction

Having an Inspection performed for a newly constructed home is crucial. Builders and subcontractors often have a lot on their plate and can miss significant items that could cost labor, time, and high energy bills.  A certified Home Inspector can make an accurate assessment of the new construction, ensuring that systems and components are installed correctly and operational.

A New Construction Phase Inspection happens throughout the entire construction process. Several inspections are performed during critical aspects of the build. These phase inspections allow us to ensure everything is being done to industry standards before moving on to the next phase. Let us help ensure your next building project runs smoothly.


Commercial Buildings/ Property Inspection Services

Commercial Buildings/Property inspections

Before purchasing a small business location, strip mall, or warehouse, it is prudent to ensure the property is worth your investment. A qualified inspector will examine the entire building and inform you of any needed repairs or potential defects that could cost valuable time and money.


Loan Draw Home Inspection Services

Loan draw Inspections

We will compare work completed at the building site against the provided construction timeline.

These regular inspections allow the bank to release funds as the construction progresses.


11 Month/Builders Warranty Inspection Services

Builders usually provide a year-long warranty after completing construction. This inspection is performed just before that warranty expires, so you don’t pay for any major issues or needed repairs after the warranty has expired.

A Re-Inspection takes place after the first inspection is completed and repairs have been made. The Inspector will check everything that was reported has been properly addressed, replaced, or repaired.

There are different types of water testing. Be sure to specify what time you need. The Inspector will take samples of your home’s water supply and send them to a lab for analysis. Depending on the test taken, the results can show any contaminants or radon in your home’s water.
