New Home Frame Up Inspections

Don't expect what you don't inspect . This makes sense. The following are a few examples of homes that were inspected during the frame up at the rough in stage. A rough in inspection has thousands of components to check. It is a detailed inspection that requires expertise and a code certified inspector.

Here are a few of the common problems found during the rough in inspection
