Understanding the Walk-Through Process in a Rolwes New Construction Home in St. Louis

As the buyer of a Rolwes Company new home, you have the benefit of observing the building process from initia­­l framing to finish. Your Rolwes Company sales and marketing representative will guide you through three exciting inspection stages that will assist you in learning about the many details of your new home.

These three phases are known as walk-throughs and are designed to give you first-hand insight into wall placement, electrical circuits, air duct pathways, plumbing lines, mechanical systems, cosmetic features and final finishes.Through this in-depth approach, you will be able to enjoy the satisfaction that comes with having personally approved of many aspects of your new home.

Get a Feel for the Framework

This first phase is often referred to as the “hard hat tour” and takes place before the drywall is applied to the framing. Accompanied by your homebuilder representative, this 60 to 90-minute visit allows you to inspect the construction and see the many components inside the walls of your new home. This is your opportunity to confirm the installation of options such as wiring for speakers, landlines and cable as well as your specified placements for lighting switches and electrical outlets.

Experience the Transformation

Once your new construction home is complete, you will be take a detailed tour of your new St. Louis home. This “orientation” phase can be about two to three hours and gives you the opportunity to inspect the details of your new home. This is the time to learn about the systems in your new home including the operation and maintenance of the air conditioning, heating and plumbing systems.

As you tour the home, test the amenities like kitchen appliances, electrical features and lighting fixtures. At this time, it is also important to inspect the aspects of your home’s cosmetic finishes including paint, tile, mirrors, floors, bathtubs, windows, countertops, cabinets and finishing trim.

Celebrate the Final Phase

This is known as the presentation stage, and takes place around three days after orientation. Any issues that may have arisen during the previous tour will have been resolved by now, and your home is ready for a final inspection to assure that every detail meets your approval.

Dos and Don’ts of Walk-throughs

It is important to remember that these visits involve a considerable amount of technical information. It is a good idea to take notes, to review them and to write down your questions and ideas. You should also make sure that you do not rush a walk-through. Set aside ample time for each visit so that your discussions with your representative answer all of your questions and address any concerns you may have.

Going One Step Beyond

Beyond the walk-through’s that allow you to thoroughly inspect your new home and understand its construction, Rolwes Company takes customer satisfaction one step further. Different from many other St. Louis homebuilders, Rolwes Company will perform a courtesy service inspection ten months after closing to make sure everything is in tip-top shape and to ensure that the new homeowners’ expectations have been satisfied.
