If you are having your dream home constructed, you will naturally want it to be built to a very high standard. It's important to remember, however, that even with the best of workers, mistakes can happen. These mistakes could even be covered over by another material like drywall and go unnoticed. For example, let’s say a piece of plumbing pipework or an electrical component is damaged in some way and then covered over. The problem may not be detected for some time and by then could have become a much bigger issue. Here is where your home inspector comes in. By having them inspect the home through its different construction phases, they can detect and diagnose any potential problems before they are covered over.
This is not the only benefit of including your home inspector through your home building process. It also means that they will be extremely familiar with the house and all the details of its construction. This will make future inspections a lot easier and help the inspector to quickly locate and diagnose any problems that may come up.
So, is it wise to include your home inspector during the construction of your new home? The answer is yes and the benefits of doing so are very clear.
