What are you looking for?
Once you have closed the funding on your new home, it’s time for final inspection. This is your opportunity to make sure that everything has been done right. Get organized and use a checklist so you cover everything.
Be sure to review the following in your personal inspection of your new home:
- Doors and windows
- Electrical outlets
- Kitchen and bathroom fixtures
- Lights and switches
- Smoke alarms
- Trim and moldings
- Cabinets and hardware
Who will be looking?
While you’re conducting your own detailed inspection, your retailer or installer should, too. Many states will also require a final inspection. You benefit from these inspections – they ensure all local codes are met, which can help prevent expensive problems down the road.
