What Is A New Construction Inspection?

A new construction inspection is a home inspection of a brand new home typically before closing. This inspection ensures the home is completed and everything was completed properly.

New construction homes in Tampa Bay have been found to have missing insulation, improperly installed roofing materials and much more.

Different Phases of a New Construction Inspection

Many people believe that just because a home is new, it’s in perfect condition. This is a false belief that can cost you money and cause headaches down the road. Our goal is to catch problems during the home’s construction so that they can be addressed right away. Here are the different phases we can inspect:

pre-pour inspection on new construction
Phase 1

Pre-Pour Inspection

This phase consists of a site inspection including rough grading and vegetation/debris that may impact structure and the foundation.

Phase 2

Pre-Drywall Inspection

This phase is completed after the rough framing has been installed along with the plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems. The pre-drywall phase allows us to discover potential issues before they are “hidden” behind the drywall.

Phase 3

Final Inspection

This phase is usually performed prior to the final walkthrough, and is similar to a comprehensive residential home inspection. We inspect the home in its entirety and test the major systems including the electrical, plumbing, and HVAC to ensure they work properly.

Phase 4

Warranty Inspection

Issues can develop in a home at any point in time, and many builders offer a 1-2 year warranty that covers specific items. With a warranty inspection we will come out around month 10 or 11 and complete a full comprehensive inspection. If we find any defects you can ask the builder to address them before the warranty expires.

Jim was a terrific inspector. He was thorough in his work and even more thorough with his communication. He took the time to explain details that I did not understand, and made sure that I had an opportunity for follow-up questions if I had them later. MUCH appreciated, Jim and Waypoint!

I had used waypoint in the past and saw their name pop up on the google search I did so I quickly recognized the company and remembered the great job they had done. I gave them a call to get some inspections done that was being required by the insurance company and they were able to fit me in their schedule a couple of days later. Jeff arrived on time, was very respectful, professional and very detailed. Waypoints service is as great today as it was back in 2009 when I first used their services.

We’re currently in the process of purchasing our first home and Waypoint Property Inspection has helped to make the process as stress-free as possible. Within 4 days of going under contract our inspector, Travis, was at the house conducting the inspection. He called me afterward to discuss his findings even before the report had been sent to us. He was incredibly thorough and gave me his personal cell number and told me to reach out at any time if I had any questions. Lara reached out the next day to follow up and see if we had any questions and again reiterated that we were free to call at any time in the future should any questions arise. We look forward to working with Waypoint again in the future when we purchase our next home!
