A pre-drywall inspection is a throughout visual examination of the structural framing and their connections as well as MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) rough-in trades that occurs just prior to installation of insulation and drywall in your home. At this stage of construction, the final wall finishes have not yet been installed which conceals behind the walls, making it the opportune time to spot defects, damage and missing items. Discovering defects at this stage allows the builder time to correct issues before they become permanently hidden behind the drywall. Don’t rely solely on the municipal inspector to find all the potential problems, because their job is to only make sure that the building codes are met.

Every pre-drywall inspection we have performed multiple issues were discovered, some being more significant than others. In all homes, mistakes occur because humans make mistakes, which means there needs to be an independent inspector that sees the home from a different perspective. Significant delays can be prevented in the building process if issues are discovered earlier rather than later which typically requires extra re-work. In some situations, the effects of construction deficiencies may not surface until years later when they are much more expensive to fix and may fall outside the builder’s 1-year warranty period. It really is in your best interest to allow Conley Home Inspections, LLC to inspect the systems of your new home before they are concealed behind drywall.
