New Build or New Home Inspection
New Home Inspections in San Antonio account for between a half and a third of all home inspections performed by Ensure. We know that sounds like a lot, but the San Antonio metro area is growing like crazy; there just isn’t a whole lot of space left to build inside Loop 1604. Because of this, builders are rising up to meet the huge demand of affordable, new homes.
…And as Home Inspectors in the San Antonio area, we know that “affordable” is only achieved by cutting some corners or cutting out some features.
Why Should I Get a Brand-New Home Inspected?
You shouldn’t need to have a brand-new home inspected…but you do. If the builder really cared about producing a quality product, the home should be pristine, with everything installed properly and in place. But they don’t, they just want to sell houses as quickly as possible and move on to the next neighborhood, and everything isn’t always installed properly or even in present where it should be.
We don’t want to scare you, the house probably isn’t going to fall down. But tradesmen miss or forget things occasionally, and tradesmen really want to finish the job on Friday as quickly as possible. Local building officials can only devote so much attention to the dozen different houses they see every day. Why wait for these issues to present themselves after you move in? Why chance things not being discovered until after your home warranty expires?
The most common deficiencies we see from brand new homes include:
- Missing roof shingles or roof flashing in critical areas
- Siding that is improperly installed
- Insulation missing in attic spaces that would otherwise go unchecked
- Roof trusses cut, drilled, or otherwise modified
- Weather-proofing improperly installed or missing altogether
On New Home inspections, we take our already exhaustive standards of inspection one step higher: we believe that a new home should not just be “acceptable”, but perfect, and we’re holding the builder accountable for that. Our New Home inspections detail any cosmetic defects that we find with the home, such as hollow/loose tiles, missing caulking, areas that weren’t painted to complete coverage or not painted at all, etc.
