Newly constructed homes that haven't been test driven often have more problems than older homes. As part of a builder warranty, the buyer is responsible for inspecting. New construction inspections or phase inspections differ from home inspections as elements of a home that are not visible when inspecting an existing house are inspected. Buying a "new build" provides a unique opportunity for either a pre-drywall inspection or phased new construction inspection that gives the purchaser insight into the build quality that cannot be determined during a normal home inspection.
Phased new construction inspections must be coordinated with the builder's schedule. Typically, phased new construction inspections include a foundation inspection and framing inspection after all the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems are installed but before the installation of insulation, drywall, and siding (wall cladding). The "final" inspection should be completed before the closing with enough time remaining for the builder to complete any necessary repairs. The "final" inspection is the same as a standard home inspection.
