There is an obvious sense of joy for homeowners upon the completion of their construction. Construction can be an exhilarating process, and there is often relief as one sees the engineers, builders, and technicians packing up their gear to leave. However, a new house doesn’t necessarily mean that it is perfect. Hence, there is a need for inspection and assessment to ensure that installations and systems are working well. We are geared at trying to ensure that your home or building is up to standard and whether the common aspects of a building have been properly addressed.
In the case of new houses, there are common problems that inspectors look out for in their assessment. These common problems may be in drainage and grading, which often result in damage to water systems. Heating and cooling systems are other significant points of concern for new house inspections. Exterior inspections of the roofs, corridors, exterior doors, gutters, and overall structure are also another major concern in new houses and which inspectors consider. It is also crucial to have your wiring and electricity systems checked to prevent accidents and setbacks in the future.
The foundation of new buildings must be inspected, especially early, to allow the builders or engineers to correct it early and on time. Problems with the foundation of buildings may pose a threat to the homeowner, the neighbors, and the property itself were anything to happen during a storm or any other turbulent event.
This inspection is necessary as it ensures that essential parts of a house are properly installed. The structural parts of a house include beams, windows, and posts. Wiring and plumbing systems are also inspected to ensure that they have been fitted properly before the house is sealed up.
Generally, new home inspectors also consider the local building code, which may vary depending on the city or county requirements. Contacting a home inspection company is crucial to ensure overall safety, proper operation of the installations, reduce the costs of troublesome repairs, and consider the resale value of the home.
