100-Item Checklist


Just like our buyer and seller home inspections, we’ll cover our 100-point checklist with a few minor differences in focus:

  • Interior. We’ll focus on the picky things like nail pops, condition of appliances, ventilation, and trim.
  • Exterior. We’ll spend our time particularly inspecting the grading because in the first year of landscaping, changes occur in the land. We’ll also look for watertight seals of doors and windows because this is sometimes missed during the building process.
  • Environmental. We like to check for radon because builders don’t offer it during the building process, citing skewed results due to soil disturbances. So, builders leave it up to the owners to check for this, knowing that most won’t during the first year. It’s also important to schedule quality water testing in homes with wells, particularly those close to farms.
  • Structural. We carefully inspect for any cracks due to settling and shifting, which are more likely to happen in the first year due to soil disturbance and consequent compaction.
