Saint Charles, MO asked in Construction Law for Missouri

Q: Buying a new construction home from a builder in Missouri. I point out mistakes they tell me they will fix it but don't

I have pointed out a small handful of poor workmanship on the construction of my new residential property. During the pre-drywall walkthrough I was told by the foreman that the things I pointed out would be fixed. When I did my next walkthrough the new foreman told me they would not be fixed and an inspector said it was okay anyway. I have asked to see the inspection report and/or contact info for the company who did the inspection. I feel lied to and concerned about what could be wrong with the home that I didn't see. Any help/referrals would be appreciated.
