For all New Home Construction Phase Inspections it is important to get an idea from the builder a date that they anticipate the building will be ready for each phase of the inspection – as soon as the date is given, notify us immediately.

 

PHASE I – Foundation

0201

The foundation inspection is the one of the most important and difficult to schedule. Builders can easily get ahead of schedule or fall behind of the initial schedule due to weather amongst other problems. We recommend that the home-buyer constantly check with builder about progress and dates of completion.

 

Concrete Slab – This phase of the inspection is done after the exterior foundation walls are finished and the plumbing rough-ins are installed, however before the concrete slab is poured.

 

Basement In this phase of the inspection we come out after the forms (walls) are poured and before they backfill. It is extremely important that this inspection is done BEFORE they backfill.

 

Crawl Space – A Crawl Space is simply a basement that you cannot stand up in. This phase of the inspection is done after the foundation is poured but before backfilling and framing begins.

 

PHASE II – Pre-Drywall

0200

 

This phase of the inspection is done which involves inspecting the electrical, plumbing, heat, and framing.  We usually perform this inspection one to three days before the contractor hangs the drywall. Note: All other inspections above must be performed before this phase.

 

 

PHASE III – FINAL Home Inspection

 

For the final new home Construction Phase Inspections the home building process must be completed by contractor. Most of the time this is when the walk-thru inspection with the builder takes place — about a week or so before the closing .  We need to come out 1 to 3 days before this walk-thru.  At this time, we perform a complete 500-point comprehensive home inspection with pictures of any problems so the client still has time to address any issues with the builder before closing takes place. At this time we can also schedule additional services (i.e., foundation level survey, radon testing, etc).
