When it comes to purchasing a home, one of the most important aspects to consider is the quality of the home. A well-built home not only provides a comfortable living environment but also ensures the safety and longevity of your investment. At Nemmadi, we understand the importance of a thorough home inspection, which is why we have developed a comprehensive range of services to help homeowners make informed decisions about their property.
With over 6000 individual customers and a presence in over 10 cities in India, Nemmadi has been operating for over 7 years as a leading home inspection company. As a sister concern of a prominent and leading CPMC Company, we have access to the resources and knowledge that help us provide the best possible service to our customers.
Our goal at Nemmadi is to help our customers “get what they were promised and pay for what they get.” By investing a few thousand rupees in a professional home inspection, our customers can save lakhs of rupees in potential repairs and issues down the line. On average, a 2000 square foot apartment has over 168 problems, with 60% of them having a variation in area and 30% having dampness. For a 2000 square foot apartment, we check between 1000 – 1500 points to ensure a thorough inspection.
In this blog, we will outline the key aspects of a home inspection and how Nemmadi can help you ensure the quality of your property.
- Civil Checks: When it comes to civil quality, it is essential to examine workmanship quality, including finishes such as painting, plastering, doors, windows, and flooring. Flooring defects like undulation, improperly done joints, and hollowness can lead to issues over time. Hollow tiles, for instance, can break under the weight of furniture, causing potential hazards and costly repairs. Our engineers at Nemmadi carefully tap each tile in the apartment, including balconies, to identify any hollow areas. They also check for undulations in walls, which can occur if the mason responsible for plastering is not highly skilled.
- Flooring Checks: Our inspectors evaluate the quality of flooring, looking for issues such as undulation, improperly installed joints, and hollowness. We identify any tiles with more than 20% hollowness and report them as defective.
- Wall Checks: We examine walls for undulations, cracks, and other defects, using tools such as torchlights to detect imperfections. Following the Singapore code, we identify snags or defects visible from a distance of 1.5 meters.
- Ceiling Checks: Ceilings can sometimes have improper paint finishes, which we check for in both walls and ceilings. We also look for potential issues such as patchy or uneven paint, shade variation, cracks, and peeling paint. Our inspectors measure door dimensions and ceiling heights to ensure that they meet project specifications.
- Door and Window Checks:Doors and windows are critical components of any home, and it’s crucial to ensure that they function properly and meet the specified dimensions. Our team at Nemmadi checks the shutters, frames, and hardware (hinges, screws, locks) to ensure that everything is in working order and free of defects. We also verify that doors close correctly and that hardware operates noiselessly and without difficulty, as intended by the manufacturer.
- Electrical Checks: Electrical safety and functionality are crucial aspects of any home inspection. Our team at Nemmadi carefully examines all electrical components, including switches, sockets, circuit breakers, wiring, and distribution boards. We verify that all electrical installations comply with applicable safety standards and regulations. Additionally, we check for proper earthing and grounding to ensure the safety of the home’s occupants and protect against potential electrical hazards.
- Plumbing Checks: Plumbing inspections involve assessing the quality and functionality of pipes, fittings, and fixtures in kitchens, bathrooms, and utility areas. Our experts at Nemmadi inspect for leaks, blockages, and other potential issues that could impact the home’s water supply and drainage systems.
- Floor Slope Checks: Proper floor slopes are vital for efficient drainage in areas such as toilets and balconies. Our inspectors use a straight edge to check the general slope trend and, when necessary, pour water to ensure that there is no local ponding. Different areas have specific slope requirements, as prescribed by the Bureau of Indian Standards, to ensure proper water egress.
- Dampness Check: Dampness checks are a critical aspect of both civil and plumbing inspections. Our engineers use thermographic cameras and moisture meters to identify cool spots and moisture levels on surfaces, which can indicate potential dampness issues. We then analyze the causes, which can include leaks, rainwater infiltration, or other sources.
- Area According to RERA : One of the critical aspects of home inspections is verifying that the property’s area complies with RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Authority) mandates. Our team at Nemmadi meticulously measures each room, including balconies and common areas, to ensure that the dimensions are accurate and match the specifications provided by the developer. By confirming the property’s area, we help homeowners avoid potential disputes and ensure that they get what they were promised and pay for what they get.

On average, our team checks between 1000 to 1500 points for a 2000 square foot apartment. Our reports include clear explanations and images of any defects, allowing homeowners to address issues promptly and efficiently.
