Pre-Drywall Inspections

Pre-Drywall Inspections: Your home should be built to three standards; the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code (UCC), manufacture specifications when applicable, and current workmanship and industry standards.

A qualified inspector that works for you can provide a trained set of eyes to check for problems, mistakes and miscues before they get covered up and it’s too late. A pre-drywall inspection by a qualified inspector can add another layer of quality control.

I recommend you ask your builder to have a pre-drywall inspection by a qualified inspector. A reputable builder should have no problems allowing you to have your own inspection, in fact many welcome it. I have worked with many builder over the years helping them raise the quality of the homes they build.

Homes are built by humans and humans make mistakes. Homes are built by many different contractors, roofers, plumbers, electricians, HVAC installers, framers, drywall installers. It’s  possible one of them could have had an off day, just make sure you don’t end up paying for it latter.

Your Inspector Should be Certified in the Residential Codes
