Why Newly Constructed Homes Still Need a Home Inspection

Buying a new home is an exciting experience, especially if the home is newly constructed. It's easy to assume that a brand-new home in Post Falls, or the surrounding area, will be in perfect condition, with every system and component freshly installed and without fault. However, even the newest homes can have hidden issues that are not immediately apparent. This is why at Quality Home Inspection; I strongly advise against waiving the home inspection for newly constructed homes. Here's why:

Identifying Construction Defects

Even with the best builders, human error is always a possibility. From minor cosmetic flaws to significant structural issues, new constructions can have a variety of problems. As a lifelong resident of Kootenai County and an InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector, I am trained to meticulously evaluate visible and accessible structures, systems, and components of your new home. This includes the interior and exterior, HVAC systems, roof and attic, plumbing and electrical systems, ensuring that everything has been installed correctly and is functioning as it should.

Saving Money in the Long Run

Identifying potential issues before moving into your new home can save you a significant amount of money down the line. Addressing problems like poor insulation, faulty wiring, or plumbing leaks before they escalate can prevent costly repairs and replacements in the future. Consider my home inspection service as an investment in the longevity and safety of your new home.

In Conclusion

Waving the home inspection for a newly constructed home might seem like a way to save time and money, but it's a significant risk that could lead to unexpected expenses and safety issues.
