Water Leak Issues in New Home Construction
It can be said that water-leak issues are built into a house at the time of original construction. Part of a construction-phase inspection performed by Timberwood Inspections it to attempt to identify construction deficiencies that exist at the time of construction. Often, the inspection uncovers minor and easily correctable deficiencies. But sometimes, potentially major deficiencies are observed. Whether you’re having a custom-home built or you have purchased a home during the construction phase, it is highly recommended that the home be inspected by a qualified third-party inspector during the construction process.
Home building is booming in the Houston Texas area, particularly in The Woodlands, Spring, Conroe, and Tomball Texas. Home building has always been a fast-paced process. This is especially true as inventories are down and builders are rushing to meet demand. In times like these, it is very easy for builders to get ahead of themselves. John Heywood said it best when he coined the phrase “Don’t put the cart before the horse.” The following video shows a potentially serious water-leak issue in a new construction house and is a perfect example of getting the cart before the horse.
