Constructing a new home is complex and involves many hands, each working on various systems and components. It is important to have a 3rd party home inspector come in and identify any issues before closing on your home with the builder. Our inspectors are New Residential Structure (NRS) Certified.
Footers and Foundation
We inspect the main structural components including steel perimeter forms, beam and bolt installation, general grading, and note any waterproofing. We also inspect rough plumbing which includes sump pump draining. Schedule before concrete slab is poured.
We inspect the foundation framing, structure, main electrical, plumbing, and mechanical components. We check the site condition and drainage and any visible steel reinforcement. We check moisture barriers (weather proofing), roof, attic, and windows. Schedule before insulation and drywall are installed.
Final Walk Through
This is a 600-point, NACHI Certified inspection conducted the same as a standard home inspection. Schedule right before the walkthrough with the builder.
11th Month Warranty Inspection
After a few months of settling into your new home, you may begin to discover minor defects. Most builders offer a 1-year warranty upon move-in. Donofrio & Associates, LLC. will inspect your home and compile a list of any deficiencies that can be presented to your builder prior to the end of your warranty period. Having a knowledgeable 3rd party inspector before this expiration can save you substantial time, money and frustration down the road. Schedule before your 1-year warranty expires.
