  • Are you building a new home?
  • Are you currently living out of the area and wish you could check up on the progress of construction?
  • Are you just to busy to keep running out to your new home site to check up on the builder?
  • Do you wish you really knew proper home construction methods so you'd know if the builder was building a safe and secure home?
  • Wouldn't you feel better having a licensed home inspector and licensed general contractor checking up on the builder for you and making you aware if the builder tries to cut corners?

These are some of the reasons for selecting Inspector Paul to monitor the construction of your new home.  We will visit the construction site as often as you like (weekly, bi-weekly, etc), inspect the progress to date, and provide you with an inspection report after each visit.  Each inspection will include complimentary color photos of your new home as well as photos and detailed explanations of any thing you may want to discuss with the builder.

 
While the local city governments have a staff of inspectors to check in on new homes being built, the Charlotte Observer reported that the average city home inspector makes over 50 home inspections every day.  In an 8 hour day that amounts to one inspection every 10.4 minutes, hardly enough time to throughly inspect your most expensive investment.
 
Unfortunately, in many cases I see more problems and poor construction techniques in new homes.  All of the attached pictures are from homes that passed city inspections.
