Designed for home buyers or investors, this type of inspection is generally performed when the home is listed for sale and before the contract closes. This inspection, which is a thorough examination of the visual and readily-accessible areas of a home, aims to identify any defects or damage to a property so that a buyer can address any safety concerns or defects before deciding whether or not to purchase.
This type of inspection is beneficial for residential or commercial property sellers. By giving sellers a clear picture of the buildings condition, they may address any issues or defects before they are uncovered by a potential buyer. Sellers should consider this type of inspection so they can approach a real estate transaction armed with the knowledge that could get them the best price and a smooth closing.
This type of inspection is performed during the construction process for new homes and commercial properties. Periodic inspections of 5 construction phases (pre-pour, post pour, framing, rough electrical/plumbing and final completion) allows structural defects to be recognized before the construction is complete and prior to the final walk through.
We recommend that homeowners have their home inspected before their 1-Year Warranty runs out. Inconsistent building and installation processes and the use of subcontractors can lead to differentiating levels of quality in a home, even if it is brand new. This type of inspection allows you to uncover any defects or damage in your home while still under the builders warranty, keeping that money in your pocket and ensuring your new home is in top condition.
Although you do not need to attend your home inspection, It is in your
best interest to attend so that you can learn about the care and maintenance
of the home. You will have a better understanding of any major issues and
know which issues are relatively minor. Shortly after the inspection you
will receive a Home Inspection Report with comments, explanations and photos
of defects or potential defects, safety hazards, and the approximate age
of major system components such as roof, heating and air conditioning equipment,
and water heaters. Attending the inspection will also help you as you review
your Inspection Report.
All McCoy and McCoy Inpectors will look at the following areas to insure
that everything is correct with your new home, and if not it will be noted
thoroughly on your final inspection repot.
A proper and comprehensive home inspection will review the accessible and visible condition of the home from the basement to the roof, which includes the following systems and areas: Structural, Roofing, Exterior of Building, Electrical, Heating, Cooling / Air Conditioning (temperature permitting), Plumbing, Interior of Building, Functioning Permanently Installed Kitchen Appliances, and Fireplace Hearth. Many inspectors will also offer additional services not included in a typical home inspection, such as termite, mold, radon, septic, water testing, etc
A home inspection is not protection against future failures. Stuff happens!
Components like air conditioners and Heat Systems can and will break down.
A home inspection tells you the condition of the component at the time the
component was inspected. For protection from future failure you may want
to consider a home warranty.
A home inspection is not an appraisal that determines the value of a home. Nor will a home inspector tell you if you should buy this home or what to pay for this home.
A home inspection is not a code inspection, which verifies local building code compliance. A home inspector will not pass or fail a house. Homes built before code revisions are not obligated to comply with the code for homes built today. Home inspectors will report findings when it comes to safety concerns that may be in the current code such as ungrounded outlets above sinks. A home inspector thinks "Safety" not "Code" when performing a home inspection.
All homes (even new construction) have problems. Every problem has a solution. Solutions vary from a simple fix of the component to adjusting the purchase price. Having a home inspection allows the problem to be addressed before the sale closes.All of these items will be in your final report.
The best time to receive your final home inspection report is the next morning. This affords you time to discuss the inspection and review the report while its fresh in your mind. We wiill NOT give a report onsite. Reporting on site means one or more of five things will occur, all negative: 1) Home Inspector is writing report and not spending the time to discuss your perspective new home as you move through it room by room. 2) If explanations are given at the time of inspection, THAN, you will have to sit around an extra hour or so waiting for report to be written, 3) Mistakes are made when rushing, items can be left out or improperly written which can lead to improper maintenance and/or repairs necessary, 4) Report may be hand written, vague, and difficult to understand at a later date, and 5) Some home inspection companies charge for this service. We feel taking the little bit of extra time, and being thorough is the best policy for all parties involved.
We not only think this is a great idea, we encourage it! This is the perfect time for you to learn all about your new home
Our inspection ends with the final report being sent to you. We will send a detailed report including all our notes, recomendations and any photos taken, including those photos taken by FLIR or Drone. we are always here, even after your inspections to answer your questions or concerns with your report.
