Should You Get A Home Inspection On A New Construction Home?
When it comes time to purchase a new to you home, there’s an expectation with the closing process which almost always includes a home inspection. You would obviously do your due diligence on its condition before committing to purchasing it, right?
So why would we spend the extra money on a home inspection for a new construction home? It’s a brand new house, why would we need one?
The answer you’ll receive from us at Rogue Inspection Services is YES! Every-single-time! YES you should purchase a home inspection for your new construction home and we’re here to tell you why this is so important.
Why should you get your new home inspected?
Some of the benefits of purchasing a new construction home is the new plumbing and up to date electrical systems, new appliances and generally the comfort of everything being new. However, although a home may be brand new, some of the issues that may arise could be a direct result from it being a new construction home.
In most cases, contractors work quickly — too quickly. Frequently, they’re subcontracting out jobs to many other vendors. Mistakes happen, we’re all human, but there are additional contractors whose competence and integrity might range significantly, unfortunately.
buyers should definitely not assume that their new home will be flawless just because it is new construction.
Let’s consider some of the common problems that new construction homes might face, and areas that we, at Rogue Inspection Services will specifically inquire as part of the comprehensive process.
What could go wrong?
Incorrectly applied siding
Gaps and cracks in patios and decks
Potential roofing leaks
Grading and drainage issues
Most commonly we find what seem to be minor mistakes that would actually cost the homeowner thousands in repairs if not fixed correctly.
The best time to schedule a new construction home inspection is as close to completion as possible without triggering a delay.
You could even play it extra safe and schedule two; one before the drywall goes up so we can check the electrical, plumbing and framing.
