Common Issues Found with New Construction Home Inspections, Part 1

This new construction home is supposed to be closing this month. Obviously landscaping/grass still needs to be installed (and the downspout needs to be extended), but another very important issue here is the grading. It is very common to see improper grading in new construction which can and does lead to water intrusion and many future headaches. Getting a thorough independent home inspection with us before your final walkthrough with the builder is money very well spent. We advocate for YOU and your best interests, always.
