If you have recently moved into a newly built home or will be in the near future, don’t erroneously believe that your home will be problem-free. And worse, don’t fail to get your home inspected because of a false sense of security. All-Pro Home Inspections has completed thousands of inspections, helping buyers make confident decisions. Now, let us walk through the top five checklist items to evaluate in a new construction inspection, which are also issues we commonly see after a home has been built.

New Construction Inspection

1. Building Code

Building codes are one of the most crucial items we assess during a new construction inspection. Our experts will determine whether there are code violations that need to be fixed by the builder. Keep in mind that our inspectors will spend more time carefully examining your home than a county inspector will.

2. Electrical System

We will closely examine your electrical system to ensure everything is wired properly and functions as it should. For example, the circuit breaker box needs to be properly labeled and not overloaded. Electrical problems can be costly and even dangerous if you don’t find them immediately.

3. HVAC System

The HVAC system is one of the main components of a home, and sometimes they are not installed correctly. Let our inspectors ensure yours is working efficiently because catching errors now can save you thousands of dollars in the future.

4. Plumbing 

Another common issue that we uncover in these inspections, and one that you most certainly don’t want to encounter in a newly built home, is plumbing that has not been adequately installed. Any plumbing issues can put a damper on your brand-new house.

5. The Roof

You’ll want to let an expert evaluate your new roof to ensure you have no immediate issues. After all, you can’t always spot problems with the roof from the ground. We have seen damaged roof shingles, nail holes in roof shingles, and missing flashings, among other things.
