Do You Need A Home Inspection For New Construction?
If you’re in the process of building or are looking to purchase a new construction home, you may wonder if getting a home inspection is worth the money — especially since the home is brand new, right?!
Well, not so fast. While we would like to hope that a brand new home has been built perfectly, it is important to have a certified third party do a full inspection of the home to ensure everything is operating and built correctly. Some common issues found in new construction inspections include structural defects (foundation cracks & improper grading), window leaks, HVAC issues, plumbing issues and incomplete projects.
If you’re in a situation where you are working with a builder to build a custom home, you could have the opportunity to have three inspections:
Pre-Pour Inspection: Done before the foundation is poured, you can get an inspection completed to make sure the excavation and grading was done correctly. Once that concrete is poured, it’s tough to go back and make changes so this could be an important one to go through.
Pre-Drywall Inspection: This is done before any of the drywall or sheetrock go up inside the home. This allows the inspector to take a look at beams, posts and other structural items that can’t necessarily be looked at once the walls are up. This is also an opportunity to look at electric wiring and plumbing.
Final Inspection: Once the home has been completed, you can get the standard home inspection that most would get for any home they are about to purchase. This is to ensure that the home is safe to live in. If any issues arise during any of these inspections, it is important to talk with your builder as soon as possible.
If you have any questions about the building or buying process of a new construction home, our team is here to help. At Three Stones Residential, we have worked with clients building, selling, and buying new homes and can provide guidance for each step of the experience. We are happy to share our expertise with you and help you through the process. Please contact us at (571) 429-7670 or [email protected].

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3-7.
Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.
Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.
Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
