With new home construction, having the house inspected immediately before the walls and ceilings are covered can be quite valuable to the new homeowner. The home inspector can then observe the whole structure and roughed in mechanicals of your new home. This includes: foundation, sub-flooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical system rough-ins, HVAC ductwork, kitchen and bathroom venting ducts, doors, windows and more.
During the inspection, 360 degree high-resolution, zoomable photos are taken in every room, giving you a visual record useful for future reference of the soon-to-be-hidden interior components of your home.
As new homes are built on tight timelines with multiple subcontractors, mistakes do happen, and oversights (even by code enforcement officials) do occur. I frequently find defects during my Pre-Drywall inspections (detailed in my blog). Identifying these defects now makes them easier and less costly to correct, and less disruptive to the homeowner, especially if defects are discovered and repairs must be made after move-in.
A Pre-Drywall inspection may just be the most important home inspection for any newly constructed home.
