How long does an inspection take?
Can I just use the inspection done by the builder or the builder's inspector?
And that’s exactly what you get with a new construction home inspection from MKC.
Why would a new home need an inspection? Doesn't the government make sure the building is up to code?
While it is true that many newly constructed homes are built to meet the minimum city or state codes, the operative word there is “minimum.” There could be other issues or problems that can exist even if a building is “up to code.”
