An inspection of new construction is not the same as a typical home inspection primarily because of the added complexity of assuring that the home is code compliant. Inspection of code compliance is the MOST important part of inspecting new construction. Although very few inspectors have the background and licensing that is necessary to ensure a proper inspection, Tom Frey brings his Engineering and Licensed General Contractor experience to the New Construction Inspection.
The FBI Group 4 Phase New Construction Inspection - Start to Finish
Even a new home should be inspected by an unbiased professional. Many of the defects we discover as we inspect older homes date back to the original construction. Some builders cut corners and even honest builders make mistakes. A new construction inspection can help provide peace of mind knowing that your beautiful new home is well built.
At the FBI Group, we offer a full range of inspections on new construction projects. The typical sequence of a residential phased new construction inspection consists of 4 Phases:
*Phases can be arranged or eliminated depending on your needs.
PHASE I: Foundation Pre-Pour Inspection: This inspection is performed just prior to the placement of concrete. We inspect items such as Excavation, Shoring and Re-Shoring, Forms, Footings, etc.
Shoring and Re-shoring
PHASE II: Lintel Inspection: This phase is for block constructed homes. The block, window layout and a pre-inspection of the lintel and block cells are inspected. Re-Bar connections, proper size steel, and proper stationing of poured cells are checked.
Lintel and Block cells
PHASE III: Pre-Drywall Inspection: This inspection is performed following the installation of framing, plumbing and electrical rough-in and just prior to the placement of insulation and drywall.
PHASE IV: Pre-Final Inspection: The Pre-Final Inspection is performed a week prior to your scheduled final walk-through with your builder..
The Pre-Final Inspection includes all of the items in our Standard Pre-Listing 21 Point Inspection plus a complete follow-up to address cosmetic defects on all Interior Finishes including cabinets, drywall floor coverings, plumbing fixtures, etc. PLUS all Exterior Finishes such as sod and landscape, and mechanical, plumbing, electrical condition, etc.
