PRE DRYWALL INSPECTION REPORT:
The Pre-Drywall inspection performed is a limited visual inspection to identify systems and components in need of correction. The inspection will conform to the Residential Predrywall Standards of Practice of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). Inspections performed in conformity with these Standards should occur after the following components have been installed:
A. foundation components,
B. floor, wall, and roof structural components,
C. plumbing, electrical, and rough-in components,
D. windows and exterior doors.
The pre-drywall inspection will include the following systems, when applicable: foundation, floor system, wall system, roof system, roof covering, heating and cooling system, plumbing system, electrical system, windows and doors, exterior wall coverings, interiors, and fireplaces and decorative gas appliances.
The report will identify any components that, in the professional judgement of the inspector, are significantly deficient. The report will also explain the reasoning for why these items are deemed to be deficient (when not self evident), and recommend correction, further evaluation, or monitoring of components. The evaluation will be based on observations that are primarily visual and non-invasive, and will be limited to the currently installed items, as there may be many incomplete items at this stage of construction. The inspection does not confirm conformity with building codes, manufacturer's installation instructions, or construction plans or specifications.The inspection and report are not intended to be technically exhaustive. This written report is a summary of observations and unbiased opinions and is based on the experience of the inspector.
