Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments you will make, and NPI knows the importance of this decision. For peace of mind, it’s important to understand everything possible regarding the home you are about to purchase. NPI home inspections are designed to meet strict industry standards and cover all major systems in the house.

Builder's Warranty Inspections
The typical home contains hundreds of components. While these components should be assembled to your satisfaction on your brand-new home, hundreds of thousands of homeowners realize that at least one of these can suffer from a construction defect. Most defects go unnoticed unless a qualified inspector unveils them. NPI’s new-construction inspection services include the following:
- Preclosing Inspection: A preclosing assessment of all of the home's major structural and mechanical components.
- Builder’s Warranty Inspection: An inspection conducted in the 11th month of owning your new home, before your 12-month builder’s warranty expires.
- Construction Progress Inspection: An inspection that helps monitor the progress of each critical phase of construction, from the foundation to the finishing touches.
Most lenders require draw inspections before they will release funds for the next phase of a building, construction or remodeling project. NPI inspectors are happy to provide draw inspections whenever they are needed.
