New home construction in SW Florida

6 days ago

Hi fellow home builders! We are putting an offer in on a home in SW Florida. We noticed the home was constructed on higher elevation more so than the neighbors. We assumed due to both flood protection and septic. However, after some back on forth regarding the driveway pavers the builder mentioned the potential of the pavers cracking due to the driveway settling. That got is thinking about the home being built so high. Any advise on what we should look for or ask? Should we get a seperate inspection regarding the materials used to fill and if that has a tendencey to settle quickly? Thanks in advance
