New Construction Inspection

In Florida, statutes allow construction companies to seek out third-party inspectors who can perform both plan reviews and building inspections. Often, waiting on these inspections can really slow down the construction timetable. We don’t want that to happen for our customers. Our team at AcuSystem Inspections is equipped and qualified to handle these third-party inspections expediently.

This third-party inspection service verifies that what you are building is going according to plan. This option is designed for us to give you an objective and expert-driven assessment of how well your structure is progressing, according to the established building plan.

Our new construction inspections are different from County Building Inspections, which utilizes the services of your local building department representative to inspect the new construction and ensure the progress of your build is up to code. Too often, this is the lament of builders while hoping to stay on a deadline. AcuSystem Inspections understands the situation, particularly in Florida. We fully understand and appreciate the time constraints you must work under. We’re constantly adjusting our timetables to work more efficiently so we can get to you sooner—often within 24 hours of contacting us for an inspection.

New construction inspections include the following types of inspections:

Pre-Slab Inspection:

Prior to the pouring of concrete, we ensure everything has been correctly prepared to help safeguard 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 watertight 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 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.

Blower Door Testing:

Verifies the new construction is up to the newest Florida energy code, as outlined in Section 402.4.1.2.

Building Final:

An inspection for each trade (e.g., building, electrical, plumbing, etc.) upon completion of their work.
