New Build Pre Delivery Inspections
New build pre-delivery inspections are provided when a contractor is close to completing your new build project but the inspection is carried out prior to the final touches being added. This ensures that the contractor has time to go back and make changes to any of their work while still on site and prevents the final delivery of a project with errors or faults. New build pre-delivery inspections are carried out when the space is safe enough to be inspected and built up enough to determine its current or anticipated condition upon completion.
What is a PDI?
A PDI or a pre-delivery inspection is an inspection that’s done before the contractors or builders are able to complete the home for selling as a final product. These kinds of inspections are done to ensure that your new potential home, and the ones who made it, didn’t cut any corners to do so in order to get it on the market quickly. If you’re looking to obtain a PDI on a home you’re interested in, you should do so before actually paying for it, so that you know you’re getting the most value for your money and you are paying for a home in a condition you’re comfortable with.
As the certified professionals in the area, we offer new build pre-delivery inspections on a regular basis to our clients and even contractors who are eager to ensure the integrity and stability of the home at hand. Our experts have been working in the industry for years and are completely capable of finding any shortcuts or potential threats to a home’s infrastructure early on, so you are not paying for something new that doesn’t come with the security to back it up.
When we arrive on site to perform a PDI inspection, we also bring with us a thorough checklist of all the items to check for when walking through the building. Our inspection should take no more than a couple of hours and depending on the size of the property. Included on our checklist is the foundation of the building, the walls, ceilings, doors, windows, any finished surfaces, flooring, locks, countertops, and any appliances that have been installed as well, such as showers, bathtubs, toilets, and faucets. Should we find that something in our long checklist is out of order, we’ll bring up the issue with the builders or contractors prior to closing on the home.
Once a pre-delivery inspection has been carried out, the home is then safe and verified for sale. This means the real estate agent representing the home or the contractors putting it on the market can confirm the home’s integrity, safe building methods and techniques, and overall structure. With a pre-delivery inspection verification, the home in question instantly becomes more valuable and in demand than a home that has not had such inspection or passed one based on building and safety grounds or local building code violations.
