New Home Construction Inspections Charlotte Pre-Drywall Inspections
Ensure the quality, proper construction of your new Charlotte home with an affordable pre-drywall inspection from Bannon Home Inspections.
Why Pre-Drywall Inspections Are Important When Building A New Charlotte Home
Pre-drywall inspections are critical in new home construction. By the time drywall comes into play, substantial sections of a home’s foundation and structure are already in place. It is far too late to start inspecting the concrete slab or other framework and structural components at that point.
So why not take a look before the drywall goes up? A pre-drywall inspection will allow you to discover any problems before they become a major headache down the road.
By giving you an early look at your Charlotte home’s infrastructure, you will be able to identify potential issues and make informed decisions about how to move forward. When you see issues with the foundation, framing, or other components, you can address them before they become too expensive to fix.
This gives you more flexibility and control over your home build. It is also a great way to ensure that your contractor is doing their job correctly.
What Does A Home Inspector Look For At The Pre-Drywall Inspection?
Multiple contractors are in and out of the property working on various areas of construction when a new home is being built. Plumbers, electricians, framers, and insulators are all working individually to complete their tasks.
This can occasionally result in components being neglected and, to varied degrees, building problems. However, many of these flaws are hidden and are not obvious at your final walk-through/home inspection. Therefore, it is critical to check a new Charlotte home during the framing and rough-in phases.
Our impartial assessment will assist to verify that the house is built correctly, leading to fewer issues in the future. Here is what we check during your pre-drywall inspection:

Charlotte, NC New Construction Home Inspection Cycle
3 Important Inspections To Consider
We offer inspections for each stage of new construction home building.
The term "pre-drywall" refers to a stage in the homebuilding process that occurs immediately after the installation of certain components, such as doors, windows, foundation, flooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical rough-in, and before the drywall is hung.
This inspection is performed once construction is completed and prior to or after your final walk through with your builder. A standard home inspection, similar to if you were purchasing a previously owned home, is completed prior to closing and moving in.
Similar to a pre-drywall inspection in the fact that it is often overlooked, an 11-month warranty inspection of your home is vital. This type of inspection is performed prior to the expiration of your builder's warranty period and can help protect your investment for years to come.
