Pre-Settlement Inspection

A Pre-Settlement Inspection is the third phase in the New Construction Process. During this phase, our inspectors will check for any issues; before the final walk-through, the builder might have overlooked that. This is also called a Final Walk-Through Inspection

Why Get A Pre-Settlement Inspection?

A Pre-Settlement Inspection will help identify any issues that are found before moving into your new property. This is an important opportunity to ask your builder to fix these issues. It is also a good time to reach out to your builder with any questions or concerns about your new home

And More!

Foundation and Footing Inspection

The footing supports the foundation or the concrete slab that the house ultimately rests upon. An inspection will check for deficiencies before the concrete being poured—the Phase before Pre-Drywall.​

Pre-Drywall Inspection

The Pre-drywall inspection will help look for any deficiencies that otherwise might be overlooked or hard to determine once the drywall goes up.—the Phase after Footing and Foundation

11th Month Warranty Inspection

After living in the home for a while, you might notice there are still some issues with the house. An inspection can help get these issues corrected before your builder's 1-year warranty expires—the Phase after Final Walk-Through.
