A pre-drywall inspection is typically the second inspection performed during the construction process and is done before the drywall and insulation is installed in the home. During this pre-drywall inspection, we are examining the structural components, such as walls, floors, and roofs, as well as plumbing and electrical rough-ins. Our Cleveland inspectors will also check for proper installation of windows and exterior doors
A key area we look at during a pre-drywall inspection is the proper installation of house wrap (weather-resistant barrier) and flashings. It is difficult to inspect for this after the exterior cladding or siding is administered, so our inspectors must check it at this stage of the construction.
