New Home Deficiency Inspection

Buying a brand new home, fresh and clean that no one ever owns is always fascinating. People would think that buying a new home is worry-free. However no house is built perfectly, and there is no exception for new houses. We discovered numerous issues at every new-construction inspection we perform. Renowned builders always appreciate having these issues found out before they turn into serious and expensive problems.

If you are planning to buy a new home, you should hire an experienced professional to conduct a thorough inspection. New homes built in BC are protected by 2-5-10 home warranty insurance. For that reason, new home buyers should have the house inspected before the warranty expires. The sooner you discover the problems, the sooner the builder can come to fix them.

New homes aren’t built to perfection. Buyers may not get involved in every detail of the construction process. Having your new home thoroughly inspected is the best protection you will get.

We encourage buyers to attend the on-site presentation. Besides understanding the home condition and all possible defects, it is a great opportunity to know more about how to operate and maintain the new home.

Protect Your Family With Zinc Home Inspections

You should expect quality and integrity in a home inspection. You can do better than accept “opinions” in place of evaluations. You can expect a home inspector to give you a thorough assessment of every single part of any home and help you understand what it means. You deserve to make an informed decision about buying, selling or maintaining your home.
