New Home Inspections

Certified home inspectors are the only ones qualified to conduct new home inspections. An untrained person does not posses the knowledge and insight required to spot many common household problems. Buyers themselves are not qualified to make this important inspection because they lack the necessary education and they are too emotionally involved in the purchase.

New home inspections have the advantage of being conducted by an impartial, outside party. Buyers interested in a house obviously have some emotional attachment to it and their feelings can interfere with their decision making process. It is best to let a professional with no emotional investment in your house perform the inspection.

New home inspections performed by certified professionals offer a comprehensive look at a house from every angle. Inspectors must examine the building's structure, including walls, foundations, attics, and roofs for signs of defect or disrepair. They must also examine every single room of the house in extremely close detail to look for minor or major faults. Electrical systems will have to be inspected for safety, and plumbing will also need to be checked.
