Do I really need an 11 month warranty inspection?
Yes, even if everything seems to be perfect in your new home there is no substitute for a thorough inspection by a professional inspector. This is your last chance to have any defects found fixed by your builder on their dime. After the warranty is up, all repairs fall on you, the home owner.
Why would a new home need an inspection?
No home is without defects or problems regardless of how it was constructed. Building a home requires numerous tasks by many trades to produce a final product. Even the best general contractors can make mistakes or oversights on their projects. At Morrow Inpsection Services, it is our job to inform you of trouble in your home, before trouble finds you later on.
Do the utilities need to be turned on?
Yes! For a complete inspection to be performed, all utilities must be turned on (Gas, Electricity, Water). All gas operated appliances (water heaters and furnaces) need gas valves opened and pilots lit if applicable.
To perform a complete inspection in occupied homes, adequate access must be provided to ALL systems that will be inspected.
Who pays for the inspection service?
The fee of the inspection is usually paid for by the buyer or party that seeks the inspection service.
