We're planning to hire a home inspector to evaluate the new home that we're building both at pre-drywall and pre-closing stages. They've just started the building in the Wesley Chapel area. Can anyone recommend a home inspection company they used in the area?

I did a search and found a couple of home inspectors (Pillar to Post, Sun house, TNC, etc.) If anyone has had any experience with any of these or others, please let me know if they did a good job for you, seemed fairly priced, and ultimately provided a comprehensive report.

thanks !!

I would recommend HomeTeam. I am in no way related to these folks but they did a great job for me so thought to share this information that may be useful to you.
They are ASHI certified and did great job for my new home inspection. They are the largest inspection service in Tampa. The best thing about them I liked is they gave a very comprehansive home inspection report in PDF format that they sent to both me and my builder.
This is what I found in my mail when they originally contacted me. Hope it helps -

"We recommend a pre-slab inspection, pre-drywall and final (where we BRING A TEAM OF THREE INSPECTORS) for most new home construction.

The HomeTeam is the largest inspection service in The Tampa Bay area. We cover Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties. In the final inspection our team consists of our master inspector who checks the main structure of the house, roof, electrical and plumbing etc. The air-conditioning inspector helps out with the general inspection when he has completed inspecting the air-conditioning and heating system. If there is an alarm system in the house we bring a 3rd inspector out, no charge. We will help you "punch out" the house.

If you are price shopping make sure your inspection company is ASHI certified, and the inspector has performed at least 3000 inspections who is doing your inspection. The company should carry errors and omissions professional malpractice insurance. Many builders will require an insurance certificate (for general liability) before access is allowed. The better inspection companies will also produce a full written narrative report, not a check list report generated on site. This report can be e-mailed to you the very next day. I am including a sample report of both a pre-wall and final inspection. "


This is their contact info I have -
