Check for Problems before They're Hidden

A pre-drywall inspection is a great tool to ensure that your home is built to its specifications. During this phase of construction, many important items have been put in place — such as the structure, doors, windows, roof components, etc — but have not yet been obscured by drywall. Issues discovered at this phase are often easier and less expensive to correct than if they were discovered later on.

Some of the concerns that are directly addressed with a pre-drywall inspection include:

  • Is there an appropriate number of electrical outlets in every room?
  • Is there a drain pan installed for the washing machine so that water is caught in the event of a leak?
  • Are there wood blocks in places where extra support may be necessary?

The value of the opportunity to inspect various systems of the home before they become hidden from view cannot be overstated. Here are some of the systems of the home that can be included in a pre-drywall walkthrough:

  • Foundation
  • Floor system
  • Roof system
  • Wall system
  • Plumbing system
  • Electrical system
  • HVAC systems
  • Exterior wall covering
  • Roof covering
  • Interior

Some more specific items that may be inspected include the following:

  • Placement of electrical wiring and junction boxes
  • Framing
  • Foundation slabs, walls, and drains
  • Footings
  • Notching of floor joists
  • Firestop material
  • Pier pads
  • Crawlspace
  • Retaining walls
  • Plumbing pipe placement
  • Waterproofing
  • Flashing for windows and doors
  • Wall studs
  • Any missing metal clips
