New Construction Inspection

3-Phase New Construction Inspections are a series of inspections completed during the construction process. Effective 9/1/08, TRCC has mandated that residential construction in unincorporated areas and other areas not subject to municipal inspections be performed. This information can be found in Chapter 446, Subtitle F.

Phase I – Foundation (Pre-Pour) Base fee $150– Prior to the placement of concrete.
Attention is paid to the following areas:

Reinforced Steel
Footings
Vapor barrior
Lot contour and grading

Phase II – (Pre-drywall) Base fee $200 - Framing and mechanical systems prior to being covered with sheetrock. In this inspection, we examine the plumbing, electrical wiring and duct installations, the roof structure and roof surface. We look at the structural frame, inspecting each member for a variety of framing errors, such as:

Unbolted sill plates
Overspanned structural members
Inadequate Perlins
Underbuilt bearing Walls
Improper notching/boring
Improper Fire stops
Severed Plates and Interrupted joists
Framing/Sheathing – fastners & Connectors

Phase III/IV –Final Grade/Final Inspection Base fee $500 - Before the buyer accepts the home from the builder, we perform a thorough visual examination of the exterior and interior of the property just as we would for any full home inspections including all of the major systems, appliances and surfaces. This will also include a room by room inspection and this report will serve as a “deficiency list” of items to be completed or corrected by the builder prior to final settlement.

Phase V – Slab Certification Base fee $300 – We also provide laser level slab certification within every 100 ft of the slab. This is also in Chapter 304, Subchapter D of TRCC rules and regulations. At this time, this is not mandatory but will be needed when acquiring a 2/10 warranty from HOME.
