Pre Plaster Inspections

The pre plaster inspection stage is one of the most important new home inspections you can do. This is because it is the last chance to check the walls and ceiling before the plastering is done. The inspection is done once the roof is on your new home and the electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling has been installed. Quite often the external doors have also been hung and shower bases and baths installed

One of the main things we look out for is to make sure there has been no modifications made to the framework since the framework inspection was undertaken. In particular, we make sure that no damage done has been to the framework from work undertaken by the electricians and plumbers

We make sure we inspect every part of your new home when we do a pre plaster inspection. That’s why it will provide you with peace of mind.
