New Construction

Many homeowners mistakenly think that if they are moving into a completely new home, there is no need for any additional inspections. After all, the materials are new as is the construction, and the home had to pass county inspections during the building process.

County inspectors may not spend the same amount of time that a home inspector does to carefully comb through your home looking for issues that plague new homes. Keep in mind that catching any errors now can save you thousands of dollars later, and the builder may be required to fix them for you.

During These Inspections, We Typically Find the Following Problems

Damaged Roof Shingles

Nail Holes in the Roof Shingles

Missing Flashings

Deck Issues

Electrical Problems

HVAC Problems

Plumbing Issues

Construction Mistakes


A new home builder typically includes a 1-year new construction home warranty on each new home. In our experience, we’ve found that new build homeowners either 1) lose track of time and forget to compile a list of items that the builder needs to fix before the warranty expires, or 2) they are not sure of what to look for. NHI recommends that all new-build homeowners schedule a 1-year warranty inspection with us at the 11th month mark. It will include the following:

Detailed Analysis of the Home

Summary of Items to Repair or Replace

Digital Photos of Areas of Concern

Construction Errors Not Corrected Prior to Closing

A Report That Includes All the Information Above


As the leading home inspection company in the Nashville area, we provide detailed and timely reports. Our inspectors review each area of concern at the time of the inspection. They will then send you an email with a link to a digital report the very same day.
