Does anyone here know if a new home builder will fix issues found by a 3rd party inspection company?

We're building with Taylor Morrison and my 3rd party inspector found some issues PRIOR to dry-wall installation (Phase 2 inspection). I want to know how much I should expect the builder to resolve before moving forward with dry wall.

All - unless your inspector is one of those that interjects his own personal opinion of what builders should do. If it is a code violation or it doesn't work - all.

Yes, like cheryjohns has mentioned. all builders should fix anything your independent inspector found that is either not working, against code or is just not correct. We are currently building and we had our inspector perform inspection at pre-pour for the foundation, before sheetrock and we are also scheduling one for the final inspection. All items found by the inspector were taken care of.

Some builders will argue - I won't mention names here - like Lord Voldemort. Others - decent builders - will take the list and repair. You shouldn't have any problems with your builder.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


Hopefully your Inspector is providing the appropriate references for the issues such as building codes, proper other standards, manufacturer's requirements, etc.?

Yes, most builders will take care of issues brought up by Third Party Inspectors, with the exception of a few, they will try not to comply at all.

Absolutely, a good real estate agent will help you fight for that.
