Being a "New Home Inspector" in Atlanta means continuous traininng and education. New home construction can be very detailed. Depending on the style, features and installations, there can be thousands of components that require someone with experience to verify they are installed properly.  I am  always learning about new building, electrical, plumbing and HVAC requirements and changes. The fundamentals and principles of new home construction has pretty much remained the same. However, the way a home is built today has evolved.

Inspecting A New Home in Atlanta After or During Construction Has different Requirements

I do certified new home inspections in Atlanta and the Metro Atlanta areas of Alpharetta, Chamblee, Dunwoody, Decatur, Duluth, Norcross, Milton, Powder Springs, Roswell, Sandy Springs, Lawrenceville, Kennesaw and Snellville, Georgia. In the western part of Metro Atlanta I inspect new homes in Austell, Carrollton, Douglasville, Lithia Springs, Hiram and Villa Rica, GA. I am also a new home inspector in Lithonia, Ellenwood, Griffin, Peachtree City, Jonesboro, Riverdale, College Park and Forest Park, Georgia.

New home buyers come in two general types. There is the buyer that picks the community, lot and plan before building starts. This type of buyer has a chance to see the home while it is under construction. They also may have a chance to make changes or upgrades during building construction. The other type of new home buyer is the one that selects a home already built and ready to move in. In most cases, this home buyer sees the home after it is finished and the home is ready to occupy. This type of purchase is after all construction has been completed and the home is ready for showing.

Inspecting a New Home During Construction

Before construction home buyers see the progress of the building taking place. It is understandable you want things to go well. It is normal for you to do your own surveys of the property and ask questions. Although many builders and contractors do great work, a house is a very big and complex item. Like a TV, radio or car, a new home can have components or materials that may need repair, replacement or adjustment. Builders, City inspectors and County Inspectors are required to follow local building code only. These codes are minimum for health and safety related issues only. Many builders ask us to inspect and report code related issues only. You can view inspection results on the report card on site or contact the building department for your home. Any cosmetic issues that appear to be damage or any imperfections should be noted. Any defects or improper installation should be mentioned also.

Inspecting New Homes That Are Already Built

Buyers of completed new homes have a various range of concerns. They want to know as much as possible about the home now and before they saw it. They wanna be sure there isn't something there that is not being revealed. Many say they want an inspection because it is in the best for their interest. If you want to know some information on record about a completed new home or about a completed home's construction, you can contact the building department and ask for a copy of the building permit which will have all the inspections and results. Some building departments will be happy to direct you to a website or provide services to view building doccuments for that home. All you will need is the homes address. It will have a history of the progress and inspections accordingly. This is not the same as a private home inspection. But. it is the inspection for minimum building standards in the local or regional area. These building inspection documents will also have builders and owners contact information.


As a qualified real estate inspector in Atlanta, I will provide the best new home inspection I can for you. If the home is under construction I can do all the inspections as each phase is completed. If there are corrections that need to be re-inspected I can return on request. If the new home you are buying is already built don't worry. Although I will be looking for and reporting on any code related deficiencies, I will report any and all defects, damages and cosmetic issues also. If you have any questions about your home I will be happy to try and answer them. In the north part of Metro Atlanta.

Please let me know if I can help.
