Owner and founder of Barclay Inspections, Gary Barclay brings with him over 30+ years experience in home construction, home remodeling and the home inspection industry. His experience in home construction and remodeling gives him an advantage not all home inspectors have. He knows the business and knows what to look for.
Most people do not think a new home can have problems but the fact is, new homes can be just as problematic if inadequate construction comes into play. Some contractors unfortunately are known to cut corners to save money but don't let it cost you!
Older homes suffer primarily from deferred maintenance and environmental conditions. This can lead to plumbing problems, roof deterioration, cracked foundations and more.
The bottom line is, you need to know what those problems are before you buy!
