A new home should not have any issues, correct? You maybe surprised in what we find during our inspection process. Let Building Analyst Group provide you with the confidence to purchase a new constructed home.
After the home has been constructed it has under gone a number of inspections by the city or county. Electrical, plumbing, structure, foundation and mechanical. However nothing has been fully tested. And all the small things such as paint, drywall, HVAC, ventilation, plumbing, drainage, and electrical has not been tested fully.
The last thing a new home buyer wants is to purchase the home, move in and then find issues. The home may have a warranty, however calling the contractor and scheduling appointments to have these issues repaired can be a challenge or take weeks and perhaps months.
The smart thing to do is to have the new home inspected by an un bias professional before closing the deal. This way you can be assured all repairs are done very quickly.
Construction phase: We provide construction phase inspections. This means we are on site during the building phase and we also coordinate with the builder. We communicate with the general contractor to make sure all is good. In addition we also review the building plans, verify studding, bracing, support walls and beams, foundation, etc. During this phase now we are able to see if all the air leaks were sealed around windows, doors, bottom and top plates, other penetrations, electrical wiring, plumbing, grading, etc. Many times on new construction sites labors will cut cornors.
80% of our customers include radon testing with their residential or commercial inspection. Ensure that your property is not at risk from this unseen danger with a test by our Radon Technicians and Specialists.
Mold & Moisture Services
Mold & Moisture Services
Prolonged exposure to mold can be dangerous, especially for those with allergies. Our certified microbial contamination technicians can help identify what you’re up against and give advice on how to remedy the situation. Discuss your concerns with our scheduling team or the inspector on site, and we will recommend the service that best fits your needs.
Termite & Pest Inspection
Companies that provide treatments for termites have an added incentive to “find” termites so that treatment will be required. We do not benefit from up-selling you a service to remove these wood-destroying-insects, rest assured, we will call it like we see it. Termite inspections are an add-on option for all full home inspections.

Sewer Camera Inspection
Sewer Pipe Inspection
A sewer camera inspection before you purchase the home will help ensure that the main sewer line is free of problems that can cause headaches after you move in. Protect your investment and avoid expensive repairs!
What is a sewer camera inspection?
- The inspector inserts a flexible rod with a high resolution camera, 100 feet into your main sewer line.
- Real-time image transmission allows the inspector to determine the condition of the inside of the pipe and understand any existing or potential problems.
Why do I need a sewer camera inspection?
- Water back-up inside the house
- Large trees in yard
- Significant soil settlement
- Clay sewer pipes
- Drop in sidewalk
- 30+ year old house
What types of problems will the camera identify?
- Tree Roots – Gaps in piping allow tree roots to enter the sewer line. As the roots grow, the pipe can crack and break.
- Low Areas – Low areas collect water and solid waste, causing poor flow through the pipe.
- Debris – Items become lodged in the sewer line, preventing the flow of waste through the pipe.
- Offsets – Sections in the piping can separate, causing an offset in the piping. Solid waste may not clear this offset, and waste water will seep into the surrounding soil, causing further settlement and eventual breakdown of the piping.
- Pipe Collapse – Significant soil settlement around an offset or low area, can cause complete pipe collapse.
Lawn Irrigation System
We offer sprinkler system inspections for an additional fee during the months of April-October (or when the sprinklers are in the “On” position during the inspection and it isn’t too cold).
We turn on each sprinkler zone manually using the control panel and then check for leaks, sprinklers not functioning properly, and sprinklers that may be spraying the house or not covering areas of the lawn.
