New doesn't always mean perfect. Catch potential major issues early.

Homes are Hand-Built, and Mistakes are Made

A brand-new home doesn't necessarily mean well built. New doesn't even guarantee good. Houses are built by people, and not all houses are built to the same standards. When you buy a new construction home without an inspection, you're placing yourself at the mercy of the people who built it. A new construction inspection allows you to catch construction issues early, before they become major problems down the road.

Common Issues for New Construction Houses

While there are countless opportunities for mistakes to occur during construction, there are a number of issues that pop up more frequently than others. Here are just a few examples:

  • Non-functioning electrical outlets and switches
  • Non-functioning or improperly installed appliances
  • Improperly installed roofing
  • Improper grading (ground slopes toward the home)
  • Poor insulation
  • Plumbing leaks
  • Unsealed windows and doors

How Do These Things Happen?

More often than not, problems with a new construction occur through circumstance or human error, rather than malicious intent. Not all builders are equal, with varying levels of experience and professionalism. In addition, problems may occur from rushed work in order to meet a tight deadline.

Protect Your Investment

It is not uncommon to find minor issues with a newly constructed home. However, occasionally a brand-new home can turn out to be an absolute nightmare, despite looking perfectly fine on the surface. Some issues, such as leaks or improper grading, may not become apparent until well after the warranty has expired.

  • " Roger was SOOO amazing! We are first time homebuyers so you can understand the stress of this entire process; but I can genuinely say that the inspection part was the easiest of it all. Everything went seamlessly, Roger came on very short notice and took care of the whole thing while we were out of town. Then he provided us with a very comprehensive report with pictures which made it so so easy for us. I highly HIGHLY recommend little creek home inspections! "

  • " Roger has made purchasing our new home incredibly easier. Not only did he identify ever major issue that needed to be repaired he showed me everything that he was talking about and took pictures with detailed explanations for our seller to understand what repairs need to be made. Without his willingness to inspect every inch of our potential home in the rain we would have purchased this home not knowing all of the major fixes needed. He spent 6 hours making sure that there were literally no stone left untouched. Grateful to have Little Creek on our team to help protect my future investment and make sure my family lives in a safe and fully functioning home.

    You need them to inspect your next home. "

His recommendations were solid and he has been available to reach to answer and explain any lingering questions. "
