New Year New Homes
First Emerald Inspection Service, we like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. Now for this weeks blog, we are going to talk about new home inspections. A new home inspection can be very crucial prior to closing. Having an inspection report to give to the builder is piece of mind for you and your family.
So, first thought maybe well its a new home. Why do I need this. Or everything should be perfect the builder would not let anything go. Well as your new home may look perfect there could be small deficiencies that can add up to having the home in need of those minor repairs. Now our inspection report for a new home or a home that is 20 years old the report and the inspection process is the same. However, we inspect a little more to detail, elements that could be over looked.
For example, all tile grout should be sealed 24 hours after its installed. The sealant is to resist any color fading or if any spills occur to prevent discoloring. Another element, is we inspect all the appliances. We operate the dishwasher for a full cycle to make sure that all cycles, cycle in the dishwasher. Also, one deficiency we always see is the irrigation system is installed because some of the heads are to close to the heat pump.
These are just a few things we see on new homes. With our report, you can always provide the report to the builder so they may correct any deficiencies. It is important that you have the builder acknowledge and repair the deficiencies prior to closing. We perform these type of inspections in Plant City, Tampa, and St. Pete all the time but will go anywhere to perform these inspections.
