Many newly built homes come with a one-year warranty that covers any defects in construction. After these first 12 months, the homeowner becomes the responsible party for any issues in the home. We will perform a Full Home Inspection during the 11th month of this warranty, giving homeowners the chance to have any defects repaired before the warranty expires.
A new construction inspection is an invaluable service if you want to avoid problems that could go undetected for years once your new home has been completed. This inspection occurs before the final walk-through with the builder to give you the opportunity to address any deficiencies before they turn into bigger problems.
A yearly Home Maintenance Inspection helps you detect problems early so you can make immediate repairs where needed and identify items to fix in the future. It’s a great way to keep up with home maintenance projects for as long as you live in your home.
There are three opportunities during the building process where Mac Home Inspections can evaluate and report on the workmanship and construction of your new home to ensure that major construction defects within your home are not covered up.

Framing Inspection prior to insulation and interior wall covering.
Final Inspection takes place after the home is nearly complete, usually just before your final walk-through with your builder.
