New build phase inspection
By custom building the home of your dreams, you have almost complete control: from the location and floorplan to the interior and exterior design. However, the one element almost entirely out of your control is the construction process.
With Element’s 4-Phase Inspections, that is no longer true. Before they are covered with concrete and sheetrock, we inspect the parts of your house most people never see so you can feel 100% confident in the quality of your custom-built home.
Phase 1: Foundation
Small mistakes during a foundation’s construction usually cannot be caught until they lead to big, expensive problems. Many issues, such as kinks in piping or uneven form boards, are avoidable. So, before the concrete is poured, we inspect:
- Steel reinforcements
- Form boards
Before your home’s frame is hidden behind sheetrock, we inspect:
- Electrical system
- Interior and exterior waterproofing
- Fire protection
- Fireplace installation
- And more
Once the builders finish your home, we perform our comprehensive Residential Inspection, which comes with the Element guarantee of competency and thoroughness. We talk a lot about our Residential Inspection throughout this website, so for more information, click here.
Invested in a positive outcome
No matter your role in the construction process – from lender to insurer to builder – you’re invested in a positive outcome for the project. Element’s professional, experienced, TREC-certified inspectors provide an unbiased assessment of a project to verify that it is on track and up to code.
Our inspection professionals carefully review a construction project to ensure the work meets industry standards, the specifics of the contract, and all applicable codes and regulations. We deliver rapid results, so lenders can quickly and confidently release funds to keep the project on schedule.
Whether due to weather or work-related accidents, damage to structures and materials can derail construction schedules and budgets. Element’s inspectors arrive quickly and work thoroughly. All insurance reports include detailed descriptions and pictures, so insurers feel confident in the outcome of a claim.
Element understands that an inspector’s role is to confirm adherence to plans and specifications AND monitor safety standards to ensure a secure work environment and final build. We carefully review a construction project to certify that the work meets or exceeds industry standards, the specifics of the contract, and all applicable codes and regulations.
