Incremental Construction Inspections

Incremental Construction Inspections

Inspections are recommended at various stages of construction

Woodbury Inspection Group Inc. provides inspections at incremental stages of construction. These construction phase inspections are typically done at the following stages:

  1. Prior to Pouring Concrete Foundation – to ensure proper preparation of the site and visible substrate, placement of foundation forms, vapor barriers, electrical grounding, conduit and plumbing pipes and placement of primary structural steel. It is much less expensive to find and correct problems at this early stage of construction, than when discovering them after the concrete is poured, and the building is framed.
  2. Prior to Drywall or Sheathing the Interior Walls – to determine correct installation of the framing (including seismic/hurricane hardware), rough plumbing, wiring, air conditioning, furnace and duct work. It is easier for the builder to make corrections before sheetrock has been installed the building components are exposed.
  3. At the Completion of the Building, Prior to Closing – to determine the structure is built to specifications, with quality workmanship and operation of all systems, fixtures, appliances and other components.The property will need to have all utilities turned on. We will check your plumbing fixtures, flashing, appliance operation, electrical outlets, drainage, window operation, AC, wall finish, deck supports, and more.Additional incremental inspections are available upon request.

It’s normal to discover construction defects during these construction phase inspections. Health and safety hazards like costly water damage, structural flaws and electrical, venting and plumbing problems are best prevented with thorough inspections.

One dollar spent on a preventative inspection is worth 1,000 dollars spent on defect repairs!

Home care tips

Service your water heater annually.

This can greatly extend the service life of the water heater and improve performance and efficiency. Propane-on-demand water heaters are prone to scaling, and tanked water heaters are prone to sediment build up.

We recommend having your water heater serviced annually by a licensed plumber.
