New Home Inspection Services

Anchor Home Inspection, LLC offers New Home Construction Inspection in CT & RI. New Construction Phased inspections present unique challenges to ensure the home construction is done right during each phase of the building process. We are careful to ensure we accurately assess every phase of the build and nothing escapes our inspection.

New home owners may think that a newly built home doesn’t require a home inspection because their local building inspector checks their property before issuing a “COO”.  The fact of the matter is, a new home buyer can benefit from using a professional home inspector during the construction and completion of their new home.

“Why does a newly constructed home need an inspection?”
It is understandable to assume state or local government officials oversee the builder and contractors, and that the local town or city building inspectors inspect the property. However, due to their busy schedules, few if any municipal inspectors are able to put in the time in the home to completely check all elements of construction. A home inspection by an objective expert could uncover code violations missed.

Even if the contractor you choose to build your new home/ property is highly recommended for quality work; the  majority of construction projects are usually subcontracted out to the lowest bidder who tries to complete it as fast as they can.

If your builder does not allow you to bring a private home inspector on site, this should raise a couple of questions:
Why won’t the builder allow the home inspector on site?
What does the builder have to hide?
At this point you should be thinking hard about proceeding with the purchase and you should also be consulting with your attorney.

Most new builders offer a warranty period for the new homeowner. However, be careful and read the fine print because not everything is covered. Your best bet is to have your property inspected by Anchor Home Inspection.

We also offer several additional home inspection services:

Radon contamination is a serious problem for homes in Connecticut and Rhode Island. This test will utilize the advanced instruments needed to detect this odorless and invisible radioactive gas. Radon is a leading cause of lung cancer and has been found to contribute to numerous other health issues, so it’s important to get your prospective home tested before committing to a purchase. If dangerous levels of radon are detected, mitigation measures will be recommended.

Before you invest in a home, it’s a wise move to make sure that there isn’t any wood-destroying insect or termite damage, which could end up costing you far more than you counted on. This inspection will thoroughly examine a home’s interior and exterior structure for existing termite damage and any signs of termites actively nesting inside the home.

This service will test a home’s water supply for any kind of contamination that could make the water hazardous to drink or otherwise use. We can test for pH balance, water hardness, radon, heavy metal contaminants, and much more.

For this service, we’ll conduct a one hour flow test of a property’s well pump. By taking readings at 10-minute intervals, we’ll be able to determine if the well is able to sustain a sufficient supply of water for an entire household. A pressure test will also be performed.

Putting a home on the market without first having it professionally inspected could be a huge detriment to your ability to get the most from your investment. For this inspection, we’ll thoroughly inspect a home prior to it being listed. This will facilitate an opportunity for any issues to be corrected well in advance of a buyer’s inspection and will give you a chance to establish good, productive communication with prospective buyers at the onset of negotiations.

This inspection is designed to give a new homeowner confidence with the quality of their investment before it’s time to start moving in. We’ll arrive prior to the builder’s final walkthrough to perform a detailed assessment of the home’s condition, informing you of any issues that we encounter so that necessary repairs can be arranged with the contractors.

When a defective component is discovered during our inspection of a property, you may feel a little let down due to your expectations of the home not being met. That’s why we offer Re-Inspections to give you peace of mind and confidence once a seller has made sure that any defects are corrected. We’ll come back to perform an additional assessment of the home, focusing on the component that was originally found to be defective to make sure that any safety issues have been resolved and that everything is in working order.

Toxic mold exposure can be devastating. It can cause life-long neurological problems, sickness, respiratory problems, fatigue, eye irritation, skin rashes, headaches, memory problems, moodiness, nosebleeds, body aches, joint pain, fevers and allergies.

Anchor Home Inspection, LLC offers mold testing services that tells you the type and concentration of toxic mold.
