Homes are Hand-Built, and Mistakes are Made

A brand-new home doesn't necessarily mean well built. New doesn't even guarantee good. Houses are built by people, and not all houses are built to the same standards. When you buy a new construction home without an inspection, you're placing yourself at the mercy of the people who built it. A new construction inspection allows you to catch construction issues early, before they become major problems down the road.

Common Issues for New Construction Houses

While there are countless opportunities for mistakes to occur during construction, there are a number of issues that pop up more frequently than others. Here are just a few examples:

  • Non-functioning electrical outlets and switches
  • Non-functioning or improperly installed appliances
  • Improperly installed roofing
  • Improper grading (ground slopes toward the home)
  • Poor insulation
  • Plumbing leaks
  • Unsealed windows and doors

How Do These Things Happen?

More often than not, problems with a new construction occur through circumstance or human error, rather than malicious intent. Not all builders are equal, with varying levels of experience and professionalism. In addition, problems may occur from rushed work in order to meet a tight deadline.

Protect Your Investment

It is not uncommon to find minor issues with a newly constructed home. However, occasionally a brand-new home can turn out to be an absolute nightmare, despite looking perfectly fine on the surface. Some issues, such as leaks or improper grading, may not become apparent until well after the warranty has expired.
