Our Pre-Drywall Inspections

A pre-drywall inspection is an evaluation of your newly constructed home before the drywall is installed. Our certified home inspectors perform an inspection of all electrical, plumbing, and HVAC rough-ins, ensuring they are compliant with industry standards. New construction inspections from Burgess can catch problems early on, saving you money in the long run.

We discover the following issues:

  • Cracked roof shingles
  • Nail holes in the roof or missing flashings
  • Deck and patio problems
  • Electrical and plumbing issues
  • Damages in the HVAC system

Pre-Closing Inspection

Once everything is complete and prior to you moving in, we perform a complete inspection of the home. All systems and appliance will be tested as well as inspection of roof, foundation and components of the home. You will receive a detailed electronic report with photos identifying defects that can be addressed prior to closing.

  • All grounds and exterior including structures, siding, windows, driveway, sidewalks, patio and deck, and foundation.
  • Interior components such as doors, stairs, floors, walls, ceilings, trim, insulation, windows, basement, and attic.
  • Plumbing equipment like hot water heaters, piping and venting, toilets, bathtubs, showers, and sinks.
  • Electrical elements such as visible wiring, panel boxes, wall outlets, light fixtures, and switches.
  • Heating, cooling, and venting units including air conditioning, ducts, room registers, returns, and ventilation equipment.

11 Month Warranty Inspection

Most builders offer a new construction home warranty on all new construction. Typically, these warranties are good for the first year of homeownership. Before this warranty expires, schedule an 11-month inspection today. Major construction flaws in new homes often go unnoticed for three to five years. Our professional residential inspectors will review all major systems as well as test all mechanical components. We will provide a written report that you can present to your builder, while your home is still under warranty.
