The working order, type and age of these systems will be identified and documented. Any deficiencies will also be noted and all information will be provided to the client.

Why do I need a Home Inspection on a house that was just built?

In today’s construction world, most developers and contractors engage in track home building and/or large development construction. The subcontractors they hire move quickly from house to house, and the only person keeping track of their work is the construction superintendent who has 50 to 60 other houses in various stages of construction. The superintendents, like the city inspectors, are overwhelmed. They are looking at the same construction day in and day out, and they will more than likely miss something along the way.

Protect your investment by having On Your Side Inspections, LLC inspect your new home.

This is best accomplished during the warranty period, preferably prior to taking occupancy. This will provide you the information and documentation necessary to ask your builder to remedy any issues found with the quality of construction.
