Newly constructed homes need an objective third-party to inspect. The city or county inspectors often don’t catch everything, but we’ve been trained to have a keen eye for anything that could compromise a new home’s lifetime or safety.
Since older homes may experience wear and tear (like aged plumbing or electrical issues), it’s easy to assume a newly built home is defect-free. This is a huge misconception that could cost you thousands of dollars in repairs, or significantly decrease your property’s value. If contractors work too quickly or carelessly, they could leave behind a project that only barely meets safety standards. Even the most skilled and dedicated contractors can make mistakes, and if those aren’t caught early, the damage they cause could be exponential.
