Once your builder has completed the construction of your home, the city inspectors have verified that the building is compliant with minimum code standards. The code officials do not inspect for functional issues like leaky faucets or cosmetic flaws, such as a scratched floor. As a Certified Building Official with the State of Minnesota (BO # 2501), I am uniquely qualified to make judgments not only on code items, but cosmetic and functional issues that go beyond the scope of a municipal inspector.

All New Home Construction Inspections include the following:

  • Gutters and downspouts

  • Roof, vents, flashings and trim

  • Skylight, chimney, and other roof penetrations

  • Decks, stoops, porches, walkways and railings

  • Eaves, soffits and fascia

  • Grading and drainage

  • Basement, foundation and crawlspace

  • Water penetration and foundation movement

  • Heating system

  • Cooling system

  • Main water shut-off valve

  • Water heating system

  • Interior plumbing fixtures and faucets

  • Drainage sump pumps with accessible floats

  • Electrical service line and meter box

  • Main disconnect and service amperage

  • Electrical panel(s), breakers and fuses

  • Grounding and bonding

  • GFCIs and AFCIs

  • Fireplace damper door and hearth

  • Insulation and ventilation

  • Garage doors, safety sensors and openers

  • And much more!
