New Construction Homes - Why You Need a Phase Inspector
The DFW area has seen increased demand for homes in the past few years due to a strong economy, high employment, and low interest rates. The increased demand has led to more and more new construction developments. So chances are, if you're in the market for a home in the DFW area, you may have at least considered buying new.
If you're starting the process from the ground up, you'll want to enlist the services of an independent inspector to protect your interests as the project progresses. Phase Inspection is just like it sounds - the inspector comes in a crucial phases during the construction process to check the standards are met and mistakes aren't made. A Phase Inspector's job is to find any issues before the next phase begins, when the problem becomes much harder to correct.
Phase Inspection is a three or four step process:
Phase 1: Pre-Pour Inspection takes place before the concrete slab is poured.
Phase 2: Framing Inspection is completed after the house is framed and before the insulation and walls are put in.
Phase 3: Final Inspection takes place once the home is completed, before the final builder walk-through.
Phase 4: Builder's Warranty Inspection takes place before the builder's one year warranty is up, to ensure that anything that has come up during the first year can be addressed by the builder.
