If you are building a new house, we can't stress enough! One of the most important inspections to get done is your pre-drywall inspection! This is the perfect time to inspect all of the structural and mechanical systems in your home before it all gets covered up. Your builder will address these issues now, which could save you lots of money and issues down the road. Here are four pictures of concern I noted at one house.
1. Cracking in concrete can/will crack your new floor tiles.
2. Gaps in studs on a bearing wall will settle and create jamming doors/windows and sheetrock damage.
3. A split truss member will cause the roof to sag and increase potential water damage.
4. Unmatched material used as underlayment on the roof may not have the same life span.
A few hours and a couple hundred dollars can save you a lot of time and money down the road.
