Are you building a new home in the Prescott area? If so, you may want to include an independent home inspection prior to closing, or at least before the one year builder warranty is over. You can’t assume that just because it is a new home that nothing is wrong with it. We provide new home inspections just prior to your closing date, as well as a month or so before the first year warranty expires.
Mistakes happen during construction. The subcontractors work fast, and sometimes work to just the minimum code standards. Even if an issue shows up after you move in, and the builder warranty covers the repair, wouldn’t it have been better to catch the problems before closing to avoid workers doing the work in the house after you have moved in? And some of the items we find on brand new construction have been major safety issues.
In the next couple blogs, we will address some of the more common issues we find when doing new home inspections. But if you are in the building process now, and would like to talk to us about doing an independent home inspection, give us a call to discuss the advantages of having someone who has spent over 35 years in the home building industry take a look at your new home!
