When building a new home, it is really in the best interest of the property owner to plan for proper phase inspections. These vital inspections will help ensure your investment is safeguarded and “up to snuff” as your new home construction project reaches progressive milestones, so problematic areas are not “covered up” haphazardly. Partnering with Bernard Property Inspections, LLC to conduct your new home construction / phase inspections would be a wise choice and will help ensure your new purchase is properly safeguarded as its being built.

There are typically three phases to a new home construction project:
Phase I
(Pre-Concrete Pour/Slab)
Visible inspection of excavated trenches / grade beams, reinforcement bars, formwork level & square, vapor / moisture barrier, etc.

Phase II
(Framing & Mechanical Rough-In)
Visible inspection of framing details, entire structure of home, electrical and plumbing details (pre-drywall application), vents, roof structure, exterior cladding, etc.

Phase III
(Final Inspection)
Visible inspection of entire home (structurally & mechanically), foundation, HVAC system, electrical & plumbing systems, installed appliances, life safety issues, etc.

Home builders typically offer a one-year warranty on the purchase of a new home, so give yourself that peace of mind and allow Bernard Property Inspections, LLC to perform an eleven-month warranty inspection, prior to your warranty expiration. This warranty inspection service conducted within the 11th month after property closing, will provide an itemized listing of deficiencies from a detailed evaluation of the home’s interior and exterior areas related to its major systems and components. It is definitely worth the investment of this inspection to help ensure you are safeguarded from any problematic issues, while still under the builder’s warranty.
