When having a new home constructed, it's wise to have three inspections on the property throughout the building process. These inspections include a foundation or "pre-pour" inspection, a framing or "pre-drywall" inspection, and a final inspection.
Some of the most common issues found in new construction inspections include:
Structural defects, foundation cracks, improper grading, and poor framing
Drainage and grading issues, which could cause water and structural damage later on
Electrical problems, such as improperly wired outlets, open grounds, and missing switch plates
Plumbing issues, including reversed hot/cold in faucets, improper piping and leaks
Getting inspections done on your new construction will prevent these issues and the costly repairs that follow from popping up once you are in your new home!
