Stellar Inspectors PLLC’s 3-Phase New Construction Inspection is a home inspection, broken into 3 phases, performed at key points in the construction process.  We will come out during different phases of the construction process to make sure your project is being executed according to your specifications. We can verify that scheduled work has been completed before you make a payment to your contractor. 

We’ll also come out prior to project completion to help you and your general contractor devise a punch list of remaining items. This is not a code-compliance inspection for your contractor, but a New Construction Inspection for you. 

3-Phase New Construction Inspection
3-Phase New Construction Inspection
  • Phase 1: Pre-Pour Inspection takes place before the concrete slab is poured. The inspector checks piers, footings, plumbing waste lines, beams, rebar, etc. prior to the concrete being poured.
  • Phase 2: Pre-Drywall Inspection: “Pre-drywall” refers to the phase during the homebuilding process just after the installation of certain elements – such as the doors, windows, foundation, flooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical rough-in – but right before the drywall is hung. This in-progress or construction-phase inspection is useful because drywall can obscure some aspects of the interior and make identifying or fixing any problems both difficult and expensive once the new home is completely finished. The inspector checks the structure, dry-ins for plumbing, electrical and HVAC.
  • Phase 3: Final Inspection takes place once the home is completed, before the final builder walk-through.  This is similar to a normal home inspection but is looking for completeness and correctness instead of wear and tear. 

The 3-phase new construction inspection will cost $200 per phase plus a trip fee for over 30 miles from our office.  You may want a sewer scope inspection to make sure the lateral line is in good shape. Package it with the 3-phase or 4-phase inspection for a discount.
