We completed a Clayton NC Home Inspection on a new house over the weekend. Clayton is just East of Raleigh and offers a lower price per sq ft and larger lots (typically). Our Home Inspection generated a list of about 35 items - most were typical "teething" issues found in new construction. This Home Inspector found a floor joist that was notched greater than allowed (weakens the framing), a few outlets that were not protected by a GFCI circuit as required (both were in "wet" outdoor areas) and the most exciting issue was the stone veneer outside wall cladding that was lacking drainage provisions. This has the potential to allow moisture to accumulate behind the wall and cause damage to framing, wall sheathing, etc and can lead to mold problems. New or old, a home inspection is always valuable.
