What is Pre-Drywall Inspection?

Pre-drywall inspections are one way to make sure that a house was built in accordance with the plans. During the construction of a home, a pre-drywall inspection is completed immediately after the installation of the doors, windows, foundation, flooring, wall framing, roof, plumbing, and electrical rough-in, but before the drywall is hung. This construction-phase inspection is essential because once the new home is finished, drywall can cover up structural issues and wrong interior features, making detecting or addressing issues both challenging and expensive. 
This is an in-depth inspection which will require substantially more time than a typical home inspection.

What areas of the home are inspected
in the Pre-Drywall Inspection?

The inspector can assess the following parts of the home during a Pre-Drywall Inspection:
