Getting your home inspected is a positive step toward peace of mind, whether you’re selling the property or just want to make sure it’s safe for your family.
One way to ensure that a house is built according to its specifications is by performing a pre-drywall inspection. “Pre-drywall” refers to a phase during the homebuilding process just after the installation of certain elements – such as the foundation, subflooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical rough-in – right before the drywall is hung.
This inspection should be scheduled before the builder’s final walkthrough of a brand new home. We’ll thoroughly examine the structure and installed mechanical systems, looking for any defective materials or safety issues that the builder should have corrected before it’s time to hand your family the keys to the home.
Buying a new home means no issues right? Well, not always. That’s why most builders offer a one year warranty where they will fix most issues that come up with your new home. But before it does, we recommend getting the home fully inspected.
When you are contemplating on selling your house, a Pre-Listing Inspection, also known as a "Sellers Inspection", is recommended to help you as the homeowner determine the issues with the home that could disrupt the smooth sale of your home. A Pre-Listing Inspection will inform you of issues with your home that you as the homeowner can choose to address by repairing or replacing defective issues or disclose to potential buyers so that the sale of your home will go as planned without surprises.
You cannot see, smell, or taste radon, but it still may be a problem in your home. When you breathe air containing radon, you increase your risk of getting lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today.
