A Phase Inspection is specifically designed to inspect the multiple stages of a new home construction.
When a new home is being constructed, there are 3 different major phases that include the foundation, frame, and final inspection.
These phases are important because once the construction moves from one phase to another, it is much more difficult to identify issues and far more expensive to actually fix them.
Here are the different inspection phases:
The purpose of the phase inspection is to make sure that the quality of the home is what you expect. It’s important to have your own inspections done to certify the quality of work done so that issues don’t appear while you’re living in the home or when you’re trying to sell the home, tanking the value and creating a loss with your investment.
By the time problems arise, they’re already very damaging and will cost a lot to repair. The point is to catch these as early as possible to reduce costs and pain.
It’s also important to remember that builders do not have licenses or required certifications. The contractors that they use each have their own respective licenses in order to operate, but a builder does not need one. Because of this simple bottleneck, you really want to have your own inspections done.
