Once everything is complete and prior to you moving in, we perform a complete inspection of the home. All systems and appliance will be tested as well as inspection of roof, foundation and components of the home. You will receive a detailed electronic report with photos identifying defects that can be addressed prior to closing.


Most builders offer a new construction home warranty on all new construction. Typically, these warranties are good for the first year of homeownership. Before this warranty expires, schedule an 11-month inspection. Major construction flaws in new homes often go unnoticed for three to five years. Our professional residential inspectors will review all major systems as well as test all mechanical components. We will provide a written report that you can present to your builder, while your home is still under warranty.
