The Importance of a New Construction Inspection

New construction inspections from Step By Step Inspections can offer you the peace of mind you need when building a new home in Charleston, SC. Many people don’t believe they need an inspection from a third-party company. When the county inspector or the builder walks through the newly built home, they believe both of those are enough to ensure a well-built and first-class new home construction.

One of our new construction home inspections can help you save thousands of dollars in repairs later. These evaluations can catch problems and code violations early on that may have gone unnoticed otherwise. If these issues are not taken care of early, they can pose a much larger problem down the road, especially when it’s time to sell.

These inspections typically uncover items such as:
Code violations
Damaged roof shingles
Nail holes in the roof shingles
Missing flashings
Deck issues
Electrical problems
HVAC problems
Plumbing issues

Pre-Drywall Inspections

Pre-drywall inspections are conducted right before the drywall is installed in the home. This evaluation includes all visible framing and components in the home and helps to ensure proper installation and code compliance. A pre-drywall inspection also includes all visible components of these areas:

  • Electrical systems
  • Plumbing components
  • HVAC rough-ins

1-Year Warranty Inspections

New construction inspections usually include a 1-year new construction home warranty by the builder. This guarantees the correction of any problems that are discovered during the first year of homeownership. The best time to schedule this 1-year warranty is at the 11-month mark so there is plenty of time to notify the builder of any items that need repair. Our 1-year warranty inspection includes:

Detailed analysis of the home
Summary of items to repair or replace
Digital photos of areas of concern
Code violations not corrected prior to closing
A report that includes all the information above
