Whether you are building a custom home from the ground up or buying a brand-new home that is already finished, don't you want to make sure it's built correctly? Reliable Home Services offers progressive inspections on new construction. In other words, we will inspect the home as it progresses from pre-drywall to completion. During your pre-drywall inspection we are looking at the following items:

  • Structure
  • Framing
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Duct work
  • Foundation

When the house is complete, we conduct a "Final Inspection" on the home. During the final inspection, we inspect everything we would for any other home. This also applies to "1 year warranty inspections".
Don't build or buy a new construction home without an independent evaluation of the home. Avoid the hassle and uncertainty by hiring Reliable Home Services to perform both pre-drywall and final inspections on your new construction home.
