The city I am in requires me to get a drywall inspection for a new wall. Should I have the inspection done before I mud and tape? What are the issues that drywall inspectors are looking for?
They check to see if fasteners and fastener spacing is appropriate, they check for fasteners that have punched through the paper, they check for appropriate fire-rated drywall (type-x) where required, they check for overlarge gaps that would compromise fire rating. My AHJ does it before mud & tape.
