Building a new home is one of the biggest investments you will make in your lifetime. It’s a long and stressful journey but also an exciting and rewarding experience. After all, this new home is where you will live, raise your family, and make memories. As a homebuyer, you want to ensure everything is perfect when you finally move in. That’s why new construction inspections from Valley Building Inspections are crucial. Let’s explore four reasons why that is.
1. Quality Control
Although brand-new homes may look perfect, there could be hidden defects that can only be identified by a home inspector. New construction inspections check for issues like faulty wiring, leaks, and structural problems that may not be visible during the final walkthrough. The purpose of an inspection is to make sure your new home is built to standard and doesn’t have any issues that could compromise the safety and livability of your home.
2. Cost Savings
A new construction inspection may seem like an extra expense, but it could save you thousands of dollars in the long run. Our inspectors can identify any construction defects or safety hazards the builder must address before you move in. This could include issues with the foundation, roofing, plumbing, electrical systems, and more. If these issues aren’t detected before closing, you could be left with costly repairs that could have been avoided.
A new home warranty may make you feel protected, but it’s important to understand that warranties only cover certain issues for a limited time. A new construction inspection can identify issues that may not be covered by a warranty, such as mold or faulty appliances. We’ll also identify non-construction issues, such as hazardous materials or environmental concerns throughout the project’s duration.
4. Better Resale Value
If you ever decide to sell your home, a new construction inspection report can add value to your sale. Potential buyers are more likely to feel comfortable with a property they know is free of hidden defects. It can also give you the peace of mind that you are selling a home that is in good condition.
