Later this week, I have an inspection to do on a house that has just been constructed. From what I am told the house is finished except for the floor covering. The agent who scheduled the appointment told me it is New Construction and he would like me to be very detailed in my report and to pick the house apart.
With the house being finished (except the floor covering), I can not treat this job as a new construction inspection. My question is, is there more to look for in a new construction home where the building process is completed than on a normal inspection where the house has been lived in ![icon_question.gif](upload://t2zemjDOQRADd4xSC3xOot86t0m.gif)
So far I think I am going to make sure the client understands that with the house being finished this is not a new construction inspection, and it will be treated as a normal inspection, just reporting on what is visible.
Is there any other steps to take or items to inspect when dealing with a house that is newly constructed and through all the parts of the building phase ![icon_question.gif](upload://t2zemjDOQRADd4xSC3xOot86t0m.gif)
