Download a Sample Inspection Report
A new house or condo should be in perfect condition, right? Not always. Since houses are put together by human beings, even houses built by the most professional and conscientious construction companies can have flaws. In fact, most do. Sometimes materials aren't exactly what was ordered; sometimes workmen misread the blueprints; sometimes people just get lazy. The typical home building project is complicated and has so many people working on site, it's difficult for the general contractor to police every nail and every finish.
A good home inspector can help you make sure that your new home is put together properly and that you'll have few maintenance problems in the years to come. If a small flaw is found, it's much better to correct it now than wait until it causes damage to your home.
