I inspected a new home today. The sign outside proudly said it had been "pre-inspected".
I have to say that this is a pretty good builder. I really didn't have a bunch of stuff on my list, however, I think a couple of them are 'Inspection 101" kind of things. Here is some of the things I found...
1. The hot and cold was reversed at the master bathroom shower.
2. The sensors for the garage door were over 12" above the floor.
3. The pull down attic ladder not only didn't have enough fasteners, they were drywall screws. There was a huge label on the ladder saying the fasteners must be 16d nails or 1/4"X3" lag screws, AND they needed to be installed in the places indicated by some arrows.
4. Open electrical junction boxes in the attic.
5. Three interior doors would not latch, and some dragged on the carpet.
I consider these pretty important things for a new construction home. I would thing they should have been pointed out - but were not.
Maybe I'm too picky.
