New doesn't always mean perfect. Catch potential major issues early.
A brand-new home doesn't necessarily mean well built. New doesn't even guarantee good. Houses are built by people, and not all houses are built to the same standards. When you buy a new construction home without an inspection, you're placing yourself at the mercy of the people who built it. A new construction inspection allows you to catch construction issues early, before they become major problems down the road.
While there are countless opportunities for mistakes to occur during construction, there are a number of issues that pop up more frequently than others. Here are just a few examples:
More often than not, problems with a new construction occur through circumstance or human error, rather than malicious intent. Not all builders are equal, with varying levels of experience and professionalism. In addition, problems may occur from rushed work in order to meet a tight deadline.
It is not uncommon to find minor issues with a newly constructed home. However, occasionally a brand-new home can turn out to be an absolute nightmare, despite looking perfectly fine on the surface. Some issues, such as leaks or improper grading, may not become apparent until well after the warranty has expired.

Very detailed, great communication, polite and friendly. Inspection report application was really good.
James and Tashina are hands down the best ever! From the moment you call in to schedule an inspection all the way to the close of transaction and beyond. They have a concierge service that will schedule things such as hvac and termite. During the home inspection, James makes sure he leaves nothing untouched and explains everything in a way the average person can understand. They will even come back and make sure everything is done correctly before closing! You won't be disappointed!
Best Home Inspection Company in Clarksville. James was very thorough and talked me threw each issue the minute he found it. Definitely will use him for my houses in the future. 10/10 would recommend!!!
James did a great job was on time and gave us a very detailed report. Great service highly recommend him.
This gentleman that came to inspect our new home, is top notch! He made sure to go above and beyond for us while we we lived out of state, and did not miss a thing! He truly does his job and does it well, and does it in the best interest of the buyer. Highly recommend!
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, especially enjoyed working with Phillip he's a nice guy with a great personality, incredibly helpful and very patient ( we had to go over the inspection by phone and I have really sketchy cell service so it took about a half dozen calls to finish up). I definitely recommend going through Journey home inspection they'll do a thorough job and it won't cost a fortune.
I strongly endorse Journey Home inspections for their exceptional services. They promptly scheduled my clients and provided a speedy report that was very comprehensive. The report was also easy to comprehend. James directly communicated with my clients and carefully explained and reviewed all the aspects of the home inspection. I look forward to doing further business with them.
James was incredibly thorough. I'm going to be a first time home owner, and he talked me through every step of the process. He also took the time to write a very detailed report and call me to talk through each section of it. I will continue to recommend his services to any friends moving to the area!
James is the best! I was extremely impressed with his attention to detail and the scope of his inspection! He also incorporates drone footage and videos which really make it worth every penny! I would 110% recommend his service to everyone!
Philip did such a thorough job inspecting the home and explaining even the small issues he found. Thank you very much for taking the time to do the job right in a courteous, patient, and professional manner.
I have worked with other inspectors in the past but I have not seen a company be so reliable with communication & information. My clients and I were in the loop at every step and both got calls to inform us about the inspection details. I'm super thankful my clients got such a thorough inspection and feel confident and informed in the end! 10/10 recommend.
Solid home inspection company, filled a home inspection timeline with one day notice, when another local home inspector flake out(family emergency). Highly recommend!!
I can't say enough good things about James and Journey Home Inspections! I was referred to him by a REA friend. He was able to get me in within 2-3 days and did the most thorough inspection! I am a real estate investor and James walked around with me teaching me as he went along. He was so respectful and kind and he gave me all the facts about the house and let me come to my own conclusion about whether or not it was a good investment. He got me in touch with other people that may help me in my journey. He was so thorough and kind and that makes me very excited to work with him in the future!
Journey Home Inspector Services were awesome! Gave us a very detailed report that included pictures of everything they looked at. I have had an inspection done before that I only got a report on what needed to be fixed. They were very professional when we walked in and let us know what they had found that were minor fixes. James (the owner) also did a follow up call a couple of days after the inspection to see if we had any questions upon review the full report. I, myself, do not understand a lot of what was in the report so he explained it in a way I can understand. I will definitely be recommending Journey Home Inspector Services to anyone I can, and I will use them when/if we decide to move to another property! Thank you James & everyone I was in contact within the company!
Excellent experience working with James. As a real estate agent, the most important thing is to make sure clients minds are put at ease. James reached out to the clients and explained the report and made sure they knew the severity level of each issue. And has left an open line of communication between them. This is rare and much appreciated.
Wonderful experience. James was very thorough and ensured he went through the report with me line by line. He was able to explain things that were in good order but may have issues in the future and was very clear about what absolutely needed repair now. I liked that I could bundle other inspections with the home as well.
There is a reason that the only reviews on here are 5 stars. I haven’t had the opportunity to work with too many home inspectors just yet, but I can tell you that I won’t need to. James was incredibly professional, and a wonderful communicator to both myself and my clients. I will be recommending him in the future!
Journey Home Inspection was wonderful to work with! Buying from out of state and James really made us feel at ease about our purchase. Very respectful and knowledgeable. Quick and easy communication was spot on! Will be keeping in contact! Thanks again!
James was able to get our inspection scheduled quickly and encouraged us to be at the home to answer any questions we might have. We also felt at ease with the inspection knowing he would use specific tools and instruments to find any issues that might come up that could be hidden from the natural eye. He even let my husband crawl around the attic with him. He was able to go over the full report with us after the inspection and explain everything in great detail. Not only is James well versed in his field, but he was also a joy to work with. Thank you again!
The service was scheduled and performed in a very timely manner and the report was available to my client the next morning. James then followed up with both me and the client to ensure that there were no questions or outstanding issues. James was very personable and easy to communicate with which made the entire process less stressful for the client. Outstanding customer service!
James was very professional from start to finish and a pleasure doing business with. We had a tight timeline to get our inspection done and he was able to accommodate us. We live out of state, so leading up to and the day of the inspection he was in constant communication with my husband and myself. We got a very thorough report with pictures of everything! We highly recommend him to do your home inspections!
The Journey Home Inspection team was amazing, and the communication was on point!!! James went out of his way even on a Sunday to fully go over his report. He doesn't just coordinate his own home inspection. He helps with scheduling other initial inspections as well!! Honestly working with the Journey Home Inspection team was a breath of fresh air!! Thank you again!
James was terrific to work with. He made time in his schedule to accommodate my schedule so that I could be present for the inspection. He was very thorough and answered any of my questions. He delivered the inspection report very promptly electronically. This our fourth house purchase and he is at the top of the list for inspectors we have worked with.
James was able to fit me in very quickly for an 11-month inspection. He was incredibly thorough and willing to explain anything asked during that time. Not only was he very thorough about finding things our initial inspector did not, but he was very personable and relatable. He quickly turned around one of the most detailed inspection reports I've ever seen and I would definitely recommend him to anyone in the market for a home inspection.
James was wonderful to work with. He was very knowledgeable and great attention to detail. I would highly recommend him for anyone needing a home inspection. He is also great with following up and any question we have had. It has been a wonderful experience.
James exceeded all of my expectations when it came to my home inspection! He was able to explain to me the whole process, and was extremely thorough when it came to the inspection. It was very easy to reach him, and he arrived to the appointment promptly. I highly recommend him for your home inspection needs!
Journey Home Inspections is extremely friendly and easy to work with! I have used them multiple times and they are always on time, communicative, and diligent in their work. I highly recommend!
James and his team are absolutely fantastic! He takes his time to make sure you understand every part of the home inspection. I can not recommend them enough.
Did an outstanding job finding some major issues in a new built house that may have never been found even during the warranty period!
Walked the home with James. He is very thorough and professional. Patient with my questions and made himself available to after the inspection to explain everything to us. Awesome to work with.
