Building your new home is an exciting process. While it can be overwhelming as you choose everything from flooring to paint colors, when it is finally done, you are more than ready to finally move into it. Some homeowners make the mistake of not having a new construction inspection done on their new home. JMark Inspections is here to talk about why having a new construction inspection is so important when your new home is done being built.
New Build Homes Can Have Problems
When you have a home built, it is common for homeowners to think that the house will be good to go since it is new. In fact, many homebuyers think they will have less home maintenance when they are moving into a newer house. This isn’t the case though. Even though a house was just barely built, there are plenty of issues that can be present.
Difference Between a Municipal Building Inspection & a New Construction
Every builder has to have the home they built pass a municipal inspection upon completion. This inspection is there to ensure the house was built to code. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that there are issues that could be present in the home. This inspection is simply there to make sure the house is safe enough for occupants to move into it, not to make sure everything was done properly.
Benefits of On-Site New Construction Inspections
There are several benefits for homeowners that take advantage of getting a new construction inspection. Here are some of the major pros to having this service completed:
– Home Repairs: If there are any repairs that need to be done to the property because it wasn’t built correctly, it can be done on the builder’s dime rather than your own. If there are issues with the wiring or plumbing, you want to make sure the builder solves the problem, so you don’t have to six months down the road.
– Prevent Disasters: Some parts of the house just aren’t looked at by municipal inspectors. Some of those areas include gutters, flashing, settling foundation, drainage and more. Having a home inspector ensure all of these areas are good to go, will help you avoid any potential disasters moving forward. You don’t want to have something catastrophic happen when it could have been avoided with an inspection.
– Catch Unseen Issues: There are issues that can arise in attics, crawlspaces and other areas of the home that aren’t visible to just anybody. You need the help of a professional inspector to make sure there are problems lurking in these unseen areas.
