Unsealed timber and plasterboard at practical completion of new building

Our building inspector finds many buildings that he is inspecting at practical completion stage or just after handover with unpainted timber and plasterboard. This is not industry standard and not to the manufacturers recommendations.
The majority of the areas internally are in cupboards such as robes and linens, on top of doors and windows and in the sliding door pelmets and externally to timber batten cut ends, decking timbers, fascias etc. These unpainted areas are susceptible to deterioration and warping.
All timbers and plasterboard needs to be sealed.
It is recommend to have an independent new building inspection at practical completion stage or after handover and preferably before you move in.
