New Construction – Should I have a Home Inspector do a Pre walk through inspection.
As odd as it may seem, the answer is yes. County inspectors work for the municipality and make sure new construction lives up to a minimum building code—repeat, minimum—plus these public servants do not work for you. What these inspectors cannot do is spend as much time on site as your home inspector and they will not issue to you a report of their findings. A codes inspector does not send you photographs or plainly worded reports of the progress and findings. For example, a building inspector may not mention that I-joist or LVL’s were improperly used in an exterior application or the attic space was missing the recommended amount of insulation.
