New Construction Inspection 

Complete Home Inspection Services evaluates many newly constructed homes each year, often finding as many issues with these homes as with older homes. Sometimes, the issues are primarily related to fit and finish and are minor in nature. Other times, the issues are more significant and would create long term problems if not identified early and corrected by the builder. Many new home buyers obtain peace of mind by having the home inspected 3 times during construction. These “phase inspections” occur at pre-determined times in the construction process and are called foundation inspection, framing inspection (pre-drywall inspection), and final inspection. 

Phase inspections require close coordination between the buyer and their builder. Once the home is ready for drywall installation, the builder will not hesitate to begin this stage of the process, thus eliminating the opportunity for a framing inspection. Communicate early and often with your builder to ensure they know which inspections you intend to have performed. Also, notify us of the anticipated inspection dates, as they are likely to change due to the builder’s schedule and any weather related delays.

Foundation Inspection 

Foundation inspections are usually performed after the forms are removed from the foundation and prior to back filling the soil against the foundation walls. This allows for inspection of the sewer, drain lines, footings, drain tiles, waterproofing, foundation walls, re bar etc.

 Framing - Pre Drywall Inspection

Framing inspections are conducted before drywall installation. This allows inspection of the mechanical and electrical rough-in, including HVAC equipment, structure/framing, electrical wiring, etc. Typical flaws found include cracked and/or warped framing, damaged/crimped duct work, improper notching of floor joists, and inadequate fire stop material between floors of the home. These items must be identified at this stage of construction if they are to be remedied. Once drywall is installed, the defect will likely never be found. If it is found in the future, it is typically due to problems created by the initial oversight. At this stage, the defect is much more costly to remedy and creates headaches for the homeowner.

Final Inspection  

The final inspection is just as it sounds… the full home inspection which most buyers are familiar with. It is conducted after the home is 100% complete, but before your builder walk-through prior to closing. This allows items to be added to the builder’s final punch list for repairs before closing. This inspection follows the guidelines of the State of Florida Home Inspection Standards of Practice and covers the following items: Structure, Roof, Exterior, Interior, Attics, Foundation, Decks/Porches, Plumbing, HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) Systems and Electric Systems.
