New construction is a man-made product and sometimes issues can be found in both residential and commercial construction from poor workmanship, misinterpretation of plan details, and deviations from manufacturer's recommendations. These are usually some of the top culprits. 

When it comes to single family construction some of the more common problems are found in:

  • Exterior weather barriers

  • Structural (wood) framing

  • Mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems

  • Window and door installations

If you plan on building it's a good idea to hire a third party licensed inspector throughout the different stages of building. If not, I highly recommend you hire an inspector to evaluate the completed home prior to closing so you are aware of all the workings of the home and any costly issues notated so that the builder can correct prior to closing. 

Also never go it alone when purchasing a home. Help minimize issues and stress by working with a recommended experienced realtor that can help guide and protect your real estate interests from beginning to end. A good realtor is a wealth of knowledge and a recommended source for referrals to good contractors. Even better work with Russell and I and you have two realtors looking out for you! ;-)

Need a list of experienced third party inspectors give me a call 936-445-0216! I'd be happy to provide you a list of contractors and help guide you through the process of finding and purchasing your dream home whether new or resale! I help my clients evaluate and negotiate both home options in the market!
