Drywall Inspections

Why Inspections Fail

  • The drywall tape and joint compound have been applied prior to approval of the drywall inspection.
  • The drywall and fasteners have not been installed per the UL Design Number specified on the plans.
  • In a multi-layered fire rated wall assembly, the first layer of the drywall has been covered by the second layer of drywall prior to the first level being inspected.
  • Moisture-resistant drywall has not been installed where required by the approved plans, specifications or building code.
