Thus, you’re having a new home built. Congratulations! We’re sure years of enjoyment and memories are in store for you and your family. You’ll enjoy all the comforts you could ever want along with all of the latest energy-saving features. However, a question arises. Should you have your new home inspected by a professional? Is it necessary? The answer is “YES!” Getting a professional home inspection is always a good idea, even if it’s a newly built home in Broward County.

There may be issues that indicate shoddy or substandard workmanship – just because your home is newly constructed, it doesn’t mean the building contractor was reputable and built your home with the highest quality standards and workmanship in mind. There could be serious issues with the chimney or the plumbing. Maybe the roof was installed improperly. The point is, you won’t know unless you have a professional home inspection.
A newly constructed home may be the largest investment a couple, family, or individual makes in their lifetime. Thus, it makes perfect sense to have it inspected before moving in. Shoddy construction is always a key concern when you consider how many contractors and sub-contractors are involved in building new homes today.
