A pre-drywall inspection is a phase of the home-building process that is performed to analyze the underlying structure and component systems prior to the interior walls and ceilings becoming insulated and having drywall installed. Unlike a normal home inspection, the pre-drywall inspection goes on while construction is ongoing, as opposed to once the home is already built. After the foundation components, windows and outside doors, flooring, walls, plumbing and electrical components, and roofing components have been added to the property, the pre-drywall inspection is ready to begin.
A pre-drywall inspection typically includes the inspection of:
- The foundation of the home
- The HVAC system
- The roofing ystem
- The plumbing system
- The electrical system
- The flooring system
As noted, the best time to schedule a pre-drywall inspection is during the builder’s framing walk-through, where the builders of the property ensure that all agreed upon design criteria and options have been built into the home and that your questions have been answered. It’s recommended that you and your agent attend the inspection. Within 24-48 hours of the Pre-drywall inspection being completed, you will be furnished with a comprehensive report describing what was inspected and the condition of those components.
