As the name indicates, a pre-drywall inspection is done prior to the drywall being hung. It is conducted after the installation of the foundation, flooring, doors, windows, wall framing, roof, plumbing, and electrical.
This inspection is essential because once drywall goes up, defects or other issues may not be able to be detected. Our inspectors help with code compliance and look for proper installation. While your home has a project manager overseeing the build, they may miss something or choose not to have an issue addressed if they deem it minor. Our inspections will call out observed concerns that should be addressed by the builder prior to the drywall going up.
During a pre-drywall inspection a number of concerns or defects may be observed by our inspectors. The question comes up, what are some of the common finds? This list is not all-inclusive but gives a sampling of what can be found prior to drywall going up that may not be observable at the final inspection.
Behind your drywall is an intricate system of wires. Cables may not be connected properly, or even at all. The grounding rode may not be connected to the ground wire. Finding and addressing electrical issues now saves time when drywall is not interfering. This also helps protect from potential fires from electrical issues.
Similar to electrical, plumbing is not always visible once drywall goes up and can be difficult to repair later. Plumbing not connected properly or damaged during installation can cause leaks and significant damage.
This gives our inspectors an opportunity to assess the walls are sealed properly and straight. Improper sealing can result in water damage or poorly insulated homes causing higher heating and cooling costs. Insulation installed poorly can have a similar result. While this can be detected with an infrared scan, it is much easier to determine and fix prior to the drywall going up.
It is important that the framing is inspected prior to the drywall because splintering/broken pieces or improperly installed frame sections can lead to long-term structural integrity. Once covered by drywall these defects would only appear once bigger issues arose.

New Construction Final Inspection
A Final Inspection on new construction is conducted when the home is 100% built. It is done prior to the walkthrough with your builder and before closing. The inspection will help determine what issues or defects can be added to the builder's final punch list of repairs to be addressed before closing. Our inspectors are looking at the 3 S's of structure, safety, and systems. The inspection covers the roof, exterior, interior, foundation, decks and porches, HVAC, plumbing, fixtures, electrical, attic and much more.
New construction does not always mean flawless. This is your last opportunity to address concerns prior to closing and moving into your new home. Our inspectors help get one extra set of eyes on your home to do a thorough evaluation.

1-Year Builder Warranty Inspection
With the completion of your new home, a builder will often offer a one-year builder's warranty. While one year is the standard, some may vary in length. It is important to know how long your warranty period is to ensure you have an inspection done prior to the warranty expiring.
A builder's warranty is intended to cover defects from the manufacturing or material defects as well as the workmanship of the construction. A sample of what is included is carpentry, concrete foundations and floors, doors, windows, electrical, HVAC systems, insulation, plumbing, roofing, and more. It is not intended to cover damages that occur through natural use of the house.
Knowledgeable expert in home design and inspection. Mike's inspection uncovered problems that we could have overlooked and as a result we walked away from that purchase contract. We will use Lunspro every time we buy a property and will recommend to our friends and associates!
Wes was thorough. His report was easy to review and provided me with information on things to be aware of relating to all aspects of the house. His assessment was honest and clear. I would recommend him to others in need of inspection services.
As a first-time home buyer, LunsPro made the inspection process extremely easy. From the initial inquiry/scheduling, to the actual inspection and subsequent report, everything went so smoothly. Mike was my inspector and did an excellent job with his inspection and took the time to thoroughly explain any findings or questions I had for him. The report was provided the same day and was extremely easy to follow. I will definitely work with LunsPro again for any inspection needs! Highly recommend
Very professional company and crew. They kept me up-to-date on any and everything happening, and even took care of some things outside their scope for me. The inspection also comes with a warranty, which is really helpful when purchasing a home. I would definitely recommend their services!
