How long does an inspection take?
Can I just use the builder's inspector?
We would not recommend this. Any inspector hired or brought in by the builder is their inspector. You want someone to inspect the building that is completely objective and who is there to look out for you, not the builder or contractor.
And that’s exactly what you get with a one year home warranty inspection from MKC.
Will all issues found be covered by my builder's warranty?
Builder’s warranties can vary wildly in what they cover. You’ll need to look over your specific warranty to understand what specifically can be repaired under your warranty.
What will my inspection report look like?
Buying a home is likely one of the largest investments you’ll ever make. That’s why it’s so crucial that buyers understand exactly what they’re getting into. During a buyer’s inspection, we form a close partnership with the buyer. We’ll be your guide as we explain any property defects or issues we uncover. We’ll also answer any questions you have.
Before the final walk-through with the builder, a new home should undergo a new construction home inspection. We thoroughly search the home for building defects and anything that may have been overlooked during construction. This allows the builder to better prepare the home for its walk-through, which results in an easier and smoother move-in experience.
Many newly constructed homes are sold along with a 12-month builder’s warranty that covers the cost of repairs associated with constructional defects. During a one year home warranty inspection, we help homeowners identify the repairs they should request before their warranty expires. This prevents you from becoming financially responsible for problems that should fall to the original builder.
During a commercial property inspection, we help buyers of commercial buildings better understand their potential new property before making the final purchase. Just like our home inspection services, we make sure that our commercial inspections are thorough and backed by our experienced and dedicated inspectors. We provide you with a detailed report that clearly breaks down our findings and recommendations.
