  • Buying a new home?

Our “New Construction Inspection” educates the buyers of newly built homes. New homes cannot be evaluated by clues or past performance because they have not had time to perform under real living conditions. We have the experience needed and focus on whether the construction is consistent with current trade practices. We can identify issues that if left undiscovered could lead to expenses costing thousands. Most new homes are protected by a warranty but we would rather identify potential issues now before they turn into warranty items later. To learn more, click here.
