Why do I need a third-party inspection on my new home?

It’s no surprise that your new home will be built by many sub-contractors that are not full-time employees of the builder that has their name on the sign. They are independent sub-contractors, sometimes the lowest bidder for their trade based of the volume of work being offered. Relax, they know their stuff. Right?

Did they do a professional job, miss important items or changes? It is a well-known fact that the Central Florida area has an abundance of new home communities and hundreds of homes under construction at any given time. A limited number of City or County building inspectors perform multiple inspections per day on permitted homes, leaving only a short in & out inspection window for each house. These are generally building code and safety inspections with specific items that they are assigned.


Cosmetics and damaged item inspections are left up to the builder's staff which are typically addressed just prior to closing which in some cases have already been covered up with insulation or drywall. It’s also a well-known fact that the last week before closing can be a nightmare and your closing may be delayed or you may be forced to close on your unfinished house. It happens all the time. You are probably wondering if everything will be completed prior to closing ? In most cases, the answer is yes or at least by the end of your 12-month warranty. Every builder is different and may have different warranty policies.

 

Amerihome Inspections will inspect the structure and every major sub-components of your home to ensure the building process was carried out to an acceptable industry standard. Our inspections usually take from 2 to 3 hours depending on the size of the home for pre-closing and 11th month warranty inspections and from 3 to 5 hours for a Pre-drywall inspection depending upon the size and complexity of the home. Ordering a third-party inspection makes good sense for many reasons and documentation is on top of most buyer’s list.
