New Construction Pre Drywall Inspection

New Construction Pre Drywall Inspection 

 

There are three inspection phases when building a New Construction Home.

1)  New Construction Foundation Inspection 

2)  New Construction Pre-Drywall Inspection

3)  New Construction Final Inspection

The second phase of the new construction process is conducted when the structure has reached the stage when drywall and insulation are ready to be installed.  This inspection should occur after the builder has installed the water lines, gas, and electrical throughout the house.  

Some benefits of the pre-drywall inspection for your new construction home are:

  • Review the building plans submitted to permitting to ensure everything is being done per plan.
  • Framing and Structure
  • Provide documentation of where your water and electric lines are installed
  • Inspects roof trusses and fastens
  • Proper application of vapor barriers (airtight homes)
  • Roof membrane installation (roof leaks)
While your home will have inspections made by the city and/or county inspectors - this is your one chance to have an independent inspector that works for you and has your best interest in mind to inspect the property.
