I thought if I'm gonna spend big dollars i May as well make sure my asset is done right and have someone else's opinion in this case NHI.
I to would of thought preslab would be common as it's the main base structure of the house. And if that fails it could lead to many problems with the home.
We are getting 3 of 4, skipping the preslab stage, by NHI.
Have NHI said what they pick up at pre-slab? (I'm guessing it would be the footings into the ground / correct placing of the Styrofoam?). Just curiosity as we didn't elect to have that stage checked interdependently. NHI also picks up some slab issues at the frame stage (commonly seems to be short edges for the brick laying/cavity)
We are of the same thought, piece of mind, looking after our investment and picking up things that can be rectified sooner and to building code.
