A 1 year warranty inspection (also known as a 10 month warranty) happens 10-11 months after closing. This inspection takes place right before your builders warranty is expired.
The purpose of a 1 year builder warranty inspection is to document the concerns and deficiencies that are present BEFORE your builder warranty expires. This inspection is crucial for your future protection against defective workmanship or materials.
Scheduling a 1 year warranty can save you thousands in the long run- plumbing, electrical, and roofing issues can be a lot to tackle on your own. Especially when the home is less than a year old. By getting a 1 year warranty inspection, the responsibility of repairing those issues is on the builders.

Welcome back! After last weeks pre-drywall inspection blog, we're going to move on to Final-Walk Through inspections.
A Final-Walk Through inspection is the final inspection before you move into your home. Unlike our standard home inspection, final-walk throughs are not only functionality based, but also cosmetic.
When your home is brand new, it should be in brand new condition! Unfortunately, that is not the case, most of the time.
What happens after my Final-Walk Through inspection?
Pre-Drywall inspections have multiple benefits for homebuyers. First, let's discuss what a pre-drywall actually is!
Now that we're all on the same page, the beginning stage of new construction is so important due to it being the roots of the home. If there are issues in the home's foundation/rough-ins they are going to affect the home later on.
With pre-drywall inspections a lot of issues we see consists of plumbing and electrical rough in deficiencies, along with gaps in the roof, and organic growth on trusses. Once the drywall is up, you no longer have access to repairing these items. In this situation, out of sight does NOT equal out of mind!!
Final walkthroughs can be just as stressful as they are exciting, so we're here to help you make the situation go smoother for you and your family. There's a few additional inspections that will make you more confident in your newly built home.
1. Sewer Scoping during the new construction phase is always a smart idea. We have seen major blockage in the past from rocks, dirt, and construction debri. This could cause many issues within your home if not addressed as soon as possible.
2. With homes being left open during the construction phase, it is easy for organic growth to grow on trusses, beams, ect. Getting a Mold Air Quality during the final walkthrough eliminates any worries about mold being present before moving in.
3.Wind mitigations are now being requested by insurance companies during the closing of new construction. Insurance companies used to give the credits if it were 5 years or newer due to the home meeting code. That is no longer the case, so we strongly recommend getting one at the time of inspection.
