Inspection Types > New Construction Inspections
Our New Construction inspection delivers to you the same extensive services that you would receive with any residential inspection plus the added security of knowing that your installed components have been pre-tested for you so there are no surprises upon you taking possession. We will determine for you some of the punch-list items that your builder can correct for you.
Typically, a framing/pre-drywall inspection takes place right before the sheetrock is scheduled for installation. This ensures the electrical, HVAC venting and piping, and plumbing are repaired or corrected prior to being covered up by the drywall.
Then, when the house is complete and a Certificate of Occupancy (CO) is "in hand" or close to it, a final inspection should be scheduled.
Be sure to obtain from the builder a one year builder warranty in writing. The Cornerstone Inspection Group also can provide you with a One Year Warranty Inspection with a written report for you to submit to the builder for those repairs.
- Ask the builder what is considered "one year" - is it from receipt of the CO? Closing? Move in date?
- Then mark your calendar to call the Cornerstone Inspection Group one month prior to this date to ensure getting you scheduled, receiving the report, and getting this information to the builder in a timely manner.
