New Construction Inspection

New home construction inspections are a great way to make sure your contractor(s) is doing the quality work that you are paying for. A new home buyer can greatly benefit from using a professional home inspector like Jersey First during the construction and completion of their new home.

We provide two types of inspections, Pre-drywall and Final Inspection.

  • A pre-drywall inspection is performed once the insulation has been installed. The structure, roof, rough electrical, plumbing and HVAC is inspected at this time.
  • A final inspection is performed prior to closing. The entire home is inspected from roof to foundation and every system and built-in appliance is operated.

Although new homes are built to code and local building officials inspect the home,  houses are very complex systems comprised of many components installed by a small army of different contractors. Defects may include:

  • Missing insulation
  • Plumbing or electrical issues
  • Heating or airconditioning problems
  • Mold growth
  • Roof leakage
  • Uneven stairs
  • Incorrectly installed stucco and stone veneer

A  new construction home inspection by Jersey First will give you an evaluation of the overall quality of the home, provide a punch list of small repairs and occasionally, find significant problems that can save the buyer and builder thousands of dollars and prevent complex litigation and repairs.
