Also known as pre-drywall inspections, these are so named because of when they are done. They occur after the foundation, walls and roof are installed as well as after the basic components in the home’s plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems are in place. Since these inspections are done just before the drywall installation phase, they can only be done on homes that are being newly constructed. The drywall will be concealing many of these aforementioned parts and systems after it’s in place thus the alternate name of pre-concealment inspection.
During one of these inspections, the inspector will have visible access to parts and systems of the home that might be totally inaccessible in a completed house. This represents an excellent opportunity for you to have an independent inspector check the basic structure and systems of your new home before it’s finished. It’s true that nearly any locality will also have a city or county inspector, but they’re more specifically only looking at matters related to building codes and nothing else. An inspector you hire will be interested in a wider array of elements in the house and will likely spend more time on the construction site checking the home out.
