The Lock Up inspection is an important inspection during the construction of your home. It should be completed once the waterproofing has been applied but before the tiles have been laid. … These items should be able to be resolved by the Builder prior to the next major construction stage inspection – the PCI inspection.
The lockup stage refers to the point in time where you’re able to effectively ‘lock up‘ the house. This is normally when all the windows and exterior doors are on (and typically, but not necessarily, the garage door). Reaching the lockup stage is a pretty significant milestone when you’re building a house.
