Absolutely. A professional inspection of a new home is important. We can spot potential problems early, while they are still easy to correct. It is especially valuable to arrange an inspection before the interior walls are finished. As building professionals, we may find problem areas where the builder has taken shortcuts or not done good work.
A complete home inspection, after the Certificate of Occupancy (C.O.) is issued, and with time remaining prior to closing, is recommended in order to uncover any defects and allow time for the builder to remedy them prior to closing. Major defects do not belong on a “punch-list” to be fixed after you own the home. “Punch-lists” should be used for minor and/or cosmetic items only.
