Defective Drywall Inspection Services
Residential & Commercial Inspectors Dedicated to Your Safety
Though most drywall used in homes and businesses are manufactured in the United States, there was a short period of time in the mid-2000s when a residential construction boom led to a shortage of domestic drywall. During this time, many builders purchased products that were manufactured in China. Often found in homes built between 2004 and 2007, these materials were found to cause many issues for homeowners. HomeTeam Inspection Service offers Chinese drywall inspections to detect if your home has these materials.

Some of the problems associated with Chinese drywall include:
- Exposed electrical wiring and copper water-supply lines can turn black and deteriorate
- Electrical connections in some appliances can deteriorate
- HVAC systems can break down as a result of corrosion of the coils
More Than A Simple Inspection
The components that can be affected by Chinese drywall are not necessarily easy to detect with a standard home inspection. In order to check the electronic equipment in the home and the wiring inside receptacles, a more invasive inspection is required. Our home inspection team is experienced and equipped to perform this inspection with confidence.
A Step Above the Rest
Pre-drywall inspections are an important part of the building process, as they allow the inspector to make sure that the framework of the building is structurally sound and that all necessary components are in place before drywall is installed. This inspection is typically done before the drywall is installed to ensure that there are no potential issues that could cause problems after the drywall is installed. During a pre-drywall inspection, the inspector will look at the framing, making sure that it is structurally sound and that all necessary components, such as wiring and plumbing, are in place. The inspector will also check the insulation to make sure it is properly installed and that there are no air leaks.
Once the drywall is installed, a drywall inspection is needed to make sure that the drywall is properly installed and that there are no defects that could cause problems down the line. During a drywall inspection, the inspector will look for any visible signs of damage, such as holes, cracks, or other signs of wear and tear. The inspector from HomeTeam will also make sure that the drywall is properly secured with the screws and nails, and that all the components, such as outlets, and switches.
