If you already own a home and planning a renovation or extension, you may not think about having the work inspected. Likewise, if you're having a new home built from the ground up, you may not think that an inspection is necessary because everything is brand new. This couldn't be further from the truth. It is extremely important to make sure that the framing, renovation, or extension is done properly and to code. The same applies to new home construction.
Many Home Inspectors do a superficial inspection of these instances because there's a false sense of everything being perfect because it's new. Think of when you buy a brand new car...do you think about having a mechanic look over a new car with only a few miles? You could imagine that no many do. With that in mind, you can see how easily these things can be overlooked. At the end of the day, a new car is covered under warranty and lemon laws, and it's typically a fairly easy process to have the dealership take your car back to correct an issue and give you a loaner without really impacting your life. It's not as easy with a home. Not only is it a massive expense and investment, it's a place where you and your family live and sleep. It's not so easy to just call the builder back and say "put me up in a hotel room while you fix the problem." It just doesn't work that way. And who wants to deal with that kind of headache anyway?
