Why a Home Inspection? Or why do I need a home inspection?

The purchase of a home can be one of, if the not the biggest investment you will ever make, so it’s probably a good idea to learn as much as you can about this property before purchasing. This inspection provides information that will inform you of any major repairs that need to be made, which will reduce any costly surprises and issues with the home afterwards. Our home inspectors will also point out positive aspects of the house and provide their opinion on what type of maintenance is best in order to keep your new home in good working order. Once you are able to go over this inspection report with our professional home inspector, you will have a better understanding of the house you are buying and be able to make an educated decision once you decide to purchase.

If you own your home and have considered getting a home inspection before listing your property, this home inspection can help you better understand the condition of the home and give you an opportunity to make repairs which will make the home more appealing to buyers. A home inspection is also a good idea if you have owned your home for a long time. This inspection will reveal issues in the early stages which will help prevent more serious problems later on that can tend to be more costly.

Building a New Home

Whether you’re building a custom home from the ground up or buying a brand new home, that’s already finished, don’t you want to make sure it’s built correctly and that it meets current State and Municipal Building Codes? Safety First Home Inspections can help you with that task!

At Safety First Home Inspections we offer progressive inspections on new construction. In other words, we will inspect the home as it progresses from one stage to another. We start by doing a “Foundation Inspection”. A quality home starts with a good foundation. Then, before the dry wall goes up, we conduct a “Framing Inspection”. In this inspection we are looking to see that all load bearing and framing components were properly installed. Also, we’re examining the plumbing, electrical and HVAC rough-ins to insure that they meet current building standards. Then when the house is complete, we conduct a final inspection on the home. In the “Final Inspection” we evaluate the entire home not only for building code compliance, but also for function and safety of the installed systems and components.

Warranty Inspections on New Homes

When you purchased your new home, your builder provided you with a one-year warranty guaranteeing most aspects of your new home for one full year. Wouldn’t it be wise to have an independent evaluation of the home conducted prior to the expiration of your builder’s warranty?

Ricky, the owner of Safety First Home Inspections will come out and spend between two to four hours evaluating your home from the foundation to the chimney. We will be looking for building code violations and check to see if the installed systems and components of the home function properly. We will also be looking for safety issues with the home.

Our on-site generated report will be clear and concise, detailing all issues discovered.

Why should you be left holding the bag on potentially expensive repairs when you could obtain an independent evaluation of the home and turn over any hidden problems to your builder to fix before your warranty expires?
