NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION
Why do I need a Home Inspection on a house that was Just Built? This is a good and valid question. The answer is that in today’s construction world, most developers and contractors engage in track home building and/or large development construction. The subcontractors they hire move quickly from house to house, and the only person keeping track of their work is the construction superintendent who may have up to 50 to 60 other houses in various stages of construction. The superintendents like the city inspectors are overwhelmed. They are looking at the same construction day in and day out, and they will more than likely miss something along the way.The City Inspectors Have Already Inspected My House… Right?
