11-Month Warranty Inspection
If you’re the owner of a newly constructed home, an 11-Month Warranty Inspection allows you to address any issues with your builder before your builder’s one year warranty expires. This inspection is typically performed in the 11th month of a new home’s occupancy.
Construction Phase Inspection
A Construction Phase Inspection is performed after each of three significant phases during the construction process on a new home: foundation, framing, and pre-drywall. This inspection ensures that building progress meets and exceeds industry standards and identifies defects that need to be addressed by the contractor before they are no longer accessible through the next phase of construction. Cowan Inspections Group also provides a visual inspection of a home’s systems and components at the end of construction before the builder’s pre-final walkthrough.
