New Construction

Why Should I have a Third Party Inspect

  The Construction of My New Home ?

Mistakes and oversights are common in new home construction, even with the best of builders.  A new home is built and assembled by dozens of individual workers and groups of specialists like framers, electricians, plumbers and roofers.

Frequently, a builder may be constructing several houses simultaneously, and crews float from house to house to perform their specialty.  Sometimes, things get out of sequence, or are overlooked, forgotten, or not checked by the builder for quality assurance.

County code inspectors do a great and difficult job but are unable to be as complete as they would like, due to high demand of their skills coupled with limited time.

House Snoops will establish your home's present condition by     checking over 400 items in 36 categories for home quality.  All visible, faulty structural, and safety items as well as visibly defective workmanship will be checked and documented.
