Always Inspect a Newly Constructed Houston Home

Moisture damage

New Houston Home Inspection: Inspected a newly constructed home for a couple this morning, that just last week, refused the advice of their agent to have the house inspected prior to closing, they just didn’t want to spend the money.

Two days after closing and moving in they noticed the wood floor starting to swell up in the family room and damp carpet in the bedroom. After the home inspection today, locating the two separate water leaks in the walls they couldn’t write the check fast enough.

The biggest problem for the buyers will be contending with the removal of all the wet sheet rock and multiple contractors parading through the house for a week or two.

Lesson – Always have a Houston home inspection performed prior to closing on a new home.
