You’ve been involved in every step of the construction process – from approving floor plans to selecting paint colors. With all the effort put into building your new home, you might feel that a home inspection is unnecessary. However, Texas Professional Inspections recommends a thorough walk-through before closing, even for new-construction homes. Let us explain why.

What Does a New Construction Inspection Entail?

During a new construction inspection, every aspect of the house is evaluated for any issues or defects. Our team thoroughly documents the functionality of each part, from switches and outlets to appliances and plumbing. We also make note of any repairs that might be needed, as well as the condition of larger systems like HVAC and water heaters. This level of inspection is crucial not only for existing homes but also for new construction. In fact, according to Home Inspection Insider, the average cost of a repair per inspection is $4,120.41, making inspections a cost-effective way to catch potential issues.

Why Does a New Build Need an Inspection?

There are several reasons why you should consider calling our Texas Professional Inspections team for a new construction inspection.

Mistakes Happen: Even with reputable construction teams, mistakes can happen. By identifying and addressing these mistakes before you move in, you can avoid disruptions and lengthy discussions over warranty coverage.

Things Are Overlooked: A fresh set of eyes can often spot issues that may have been overlooked by the construction team and your own familiarity with the home.

Construction Damage: Some components of the home might have stopped functioning during the construction process, and we can help identify and document these issues so they can be fixed promptly.
