With just a home inspection, things are relatively a lot more straightforward as compared to a new construction home inspection. After all, a lot more aspects are clear when it comes to a house that has been lived in, as opposed to a brand new home. It is as simple and straightforward as that. One of our first steps at AAA Home Inspections with new clients is dispel the notion that a new construction home inspection is pretty much the same as a normal home inspection. Once that is out of the way, we make a note of the expectations and needs of the client in particular and then assign an expert to the task as soon as possible.
There are quite a few ways to look at the necessity of a new construction home inspection. First of all, by doing so, you will get valuable insights into the construction of the property as well as a good chance to prevent expensive repairs in the future from occurring. That is one of the most important aspects to keep in mind at all times. Far from being a waste of time and money, it is a valuable investment and if planned properly, will save you a great deal of hassles and trouble later on. With our super-professional and experienced team members, you can be positive of that fact.
How Important Are New Construction Home Inspections?
The fact that for some people out there, a question as vital as this needs to be asked is enough proof of the fact that people are still not as aware as they think. New homes may look absolutely spick and span on the surface, but one certainly needs to dig a little more deeper to ensure that one looks into every nook and cranny thoroughly. There are no two ways about that, whatsoever. Not only might there be leftover debris that has not been cleared for days, but there are other hidden dangers such as nails, sharp wood splinters and the like that everyone in general needs to be extra careful about.
In a nutshell, there are specific issues that are commonly found in newer homes. Some of them are structural defects (cracks and poor framing), drainage issues, window and plumbing leaks as well as an array of electrical issues. New construction materials and floor coverings that have recently been used in new construction that we have tested that contain formaldehyde, a cancer causing chemical. Being as well-trained as they are, our experts would be able to spot these in no time at all and recommend lab testing. The only things you need to do is call us today.
