Inspections for a brand new house -- are they really needed?

Every year millions of dollars are spent by homeowners trying to make repairs to their brand new home that they can't get the homebuilder to come back and do. These repairs include among others: missing foundation footings, missing window or door flashings, hot and cold water lines that are reversed, floor joists completely cut in half for utility lines and never braced, improperly installed siding or roofing, undersized furnaces, mis-wired electrical outlets, etc. Many of these problems were caused by poor design, shoddy building materials, or a simple lack of attention to detail. Most of these problems could have been avoided.

Many people are totally unaware of good building standards or building codes and rely on their builder or the local code inspector to see that their new home is relatively free of construction defects or poor workmanship. Unfortunately that doesn't always happen. Let us be another set of eyes for you to help ensure that you get a quality home and to minimize the chances that your new home will need costly repairs in the future from hidden defects.

We have set up a basic inspection program that ensures site visits and inspections at critical times during the construction process, to verify that the major systems and components of your new home are properly installed. All of "The Holmes Inspectors" that are used in this process have spent many years as home builders or general contractors themselves as well as being "Certified Members" of ASHI and FHA Approved Compliance Inspectors. Several of the inspectors are also code certified or carry other specialized licenses.

Our "new construction monitoring program" includes verbal consulting, a written report, and photos of any significant defects after each site visit. Additional testing and site visits can also be provided if so desired. The basic inspection program and fee is designed to provide 5 or 6 site visits and inspections on a new home in the greater Kansas City Metroplex or surrounding area. Our basic fee would include any house up to 3,500 square foot in size. For larger houses or those with special systems or other special client needs - call or contact us for a quote.
