Phase Two: Framing Inspection

Phase Two of the phase inspection process is an inspection once the frame, the roof , windows and exterior cladding are complete - but before the insulation and walls are put in. Sheet rock and insulation cover materials like the window flashing, wiring, and the components of the frame itself. For example:

1. Flashing around windows and other points of penetration may be installed improperly and allow water or air to leak into the home. 

2. Load bearing studs are often over-stressed by being cut or moved for utility installation.

3. Improper installation of air and water-barrier systems allowing unconditioned air into the home's thermal envelope.

The  Framing Inspection take place at another crucial time in the building process. Errors found at this point can be easily fixed; problems not found at this point can cause major damage down the road.
