Construction Inspections can be performed at strategic points in the New Home Construction process, to identify issues as they develop and prior to their being covered by finished surfaces.
One or more inspections can be performed at each stage, depending on your level of comfort with your builder.
Excavation – To observe soil conditions, moisture conditions, etc.
Foundation – soils report review, excavation, footings/piers, walls, waterproofing/drain, backfill
Rough Framing – can be inspected in progress, or at the completion of the framing.
Backfill and Grading – To observe compaction, proper slope, etc.
- Completion – To verify completion and final disposition of work.
