Within this service, we offer nine documented inspections:
Pre-Slab Inspection: Prior to the pouring of concrete, we ensure everything has been correctly prepared leading up to this step to help safeguard that the home you are building is on a solid foundation. This inspection includes a review of planned slab thickness, load bearing sections, installation of moisture barrier, placement of steel, and verification of termite pre-treatment.
Lintel: All lintels are inspected to ensure they have been properly installed, tied, supported, and painted to reduce rusting. This inspection is conducted prior to filling the cells with grout.
Wall Sheathing: Before the wall sheathing is covered, we inspect the installation and nailing of the vertical wall.
House Wrap: Verification of proper, water-tight installation including a review of joints and ensuring adequate lapping, proper nail or staple placement, coverage of sill plate and foundation joint, and proper drainage provisions.
Frame: The framing, truss installation, sheer wall construction, plumbing top out, electrical rough and the HVAC installation are all reviewed in this inspection to ensure the installation matches the construction plans and meets all local codes.
Lath: Prior to the application of stucco, the stucco lath and related accessories are inspected to ensure the lath is correctly placed and fastened to the wall, and that it will provide adequate waterproofing for the stucco application.
In-Progress Stucco: This inspection is conducted during the course of stucco application to ensure proper application methods are being adhered to, and to correct improper applications before they cause long-term building issues.
Stucco Cores: Verification of proper application of stucco through visual inspection and moisture intrusion testing.
Building Final: An inspection for each trade (i.e. building, electrical, plumbing, etc.) upon completion of their work.
