NEW HOME INSPECTION
While your builder and the local inspectors endeavor to deliver the best product possible, an independent, third party inspection which can take as much as four hours to complete, is your best investment in your largest investment. Every aspect of the dwelling is inspected and reported on. Even though the CO (certificate of occupancy) has probably already been issued, pertinent aspects of the structure that are visible and governed by codes, can still be highlighted if necessary using the proper code reference.
The New Home Inspection report can help generate a working document for your builder which will enable them to quickly and properly address any issues that may need their attention.
The areas included in the New Home Inspection are:
- Heating and Air Conditioning
- Proper operation of installed appliances
Call or email now to schedule your New Home Inspection. We recommend this inspection is accomplished prior to the final “walk though” inspection with the builder.
RESALE HOME INSPECTION
Inspections performed in resold homes, regardless of age, are very similar to the New Home inspection with one exception: there is no code reference to any issue.
Codes are for builders and for new construction, or for work being performed on existing structures under a permit (remodeling, room additions, etc.). Codes do not generally apply to existing structures. Existing structures are said to be grand fathered.
Resold homes are inspected identically to New Homes. If there are issues present in the structure that could pose a threat to life and limb, are hazardous or are of a structural concern, those issues are duly noted and reported. After all, those are the same issues codes are concerned with. In the end, the very same issues addressed by codes are addressed in these inspections. Only the terminology is different.
The inspection process used to inspect existing structures is based on Standards developed by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). If the structure is located in Georgia, the combined standards of ASHI and the Georgia Association of Home Inspectors (GAHI) are used to assure the most thorough inspection possible.
