New Home Inspections

Our Expertise

Our team of inspectors do about 2,500 new home inspections a year where we serve as a quality control team of the builder by doing final punch inspections.  The builders that we inspect for include NVR/Ryan, Lennar, Dan Ryan, DR Horton, K Hovnanian, Brookfield Homes and Snell Brothers.  

This experience makes us uniquely qualified to do your new home inspection because we have a very clear understanding of building standards adopted in the new home build industry and we know where to look.  We check everything from fit and finish to mechanical performance, roof installation to attic insulation, window and door performance to the quality of drywall and paint.  Our critical eye is trained to find both the little and big things.

The Outcome

Our reporting is very photo-driven with descriptions that will guide punch teams directly to the defect.  We are speaking the same language as the builder. 

Best of all, we are your bad guy.  This allows you to maintain your all-important relationship with both the PM and the Customer Service team members.  Finally, we are always available to clarify our comments, meet with your builder to help resolve problems, or just take a phone call from you if you need advice.  We want to be your home inspector for life.

1-Year Warranty

Before the anniversary of your move-in date, you are given one last chance to make a punch list for your builder’s warranty department on things that need to be fixed.  We provide a One Year Warranty Inspection where we work closely with you to put together a comprehensive list of items that the builder should fix.  

Our protocols and checklists are the same as the New Home Inspection and often we find many things that should have been fixed before move-in.  We also account for a year of settling where we focus on “blue tape” issues such as nail pops and cracks.  Conspicuous marks get blue taped and hard-to-find marks get listed as defects.  We also train you on blue tape protocols.

A comprehensive list will be sent to you in PDF form complete with pictures and descriptions very similar to the New Home Inspection.  

Again, we serve as your bad guy so that you can maintain your relationship with the Customer Service team.
