Hi there,

This would depend on whether this is already finished or work in progress.

If already finished, what you would be looking out for is P traps and shut-off valves on all fixtures. You would also be looking for leaks in plumbing and fixtures like under sinks/lavatory, around the toilet and bathroom. You may also require tools like a moisture meter and thermal camera. You would be checking the shower walls, and fixtures for firmness. Finding leaks inside the wall is tricky. If you suspect an area you would typically use the moisture meter and thermal camera around the area. You would be checking the area where water runs off for proper caulking too. Also the exhaust for the bathroom and it's CFM rating where possible.

If this is still work in progress then the same checks apply however you also have the added opportunity to inspect quality of workmanship and materials. Also you would be looking for proper drainage venting

A bathroom reno may be tricky to inspect but armed with the right tools and knowledge of what to look for then you're set.

I hope I was helpful.

Normally bathrooms are inspected upon Rough ins. If your bathroom is already completed and fixtures are installed I strongly recommend you calling trusted Pro contractor in your local area to have them come out and inspect it.
