BUILDING INSPECTIONS

MELBOURNE

Melbourne building inspections

A property can look fine on the surface, but have a long list of defects and issues that you can’t see. Defects and issues, that if left untouched could cost you tens of thousands of dollars to fix.

Identify problems, before their big problems

Whether you’re a homeowner or in the market to buy a property, a building inspection will alert you to any problems or potential problems that a property has. It will tell you exactly what is going on with the property, if there are minor or major defects, structural issues, or problems that require attention.

Melbourne building inspections start at $295.

It’s a small price to pay when you consider it could save you tens, even hundreds, of thousands of dollars in the long run. Not only can our building reports save you the stress and financial burden of buying a money pit, they can also give you the information you need to negotiate a lower purchase price. Or if you’re an existing home owner, give you the information you need to get on the front foot and address problems before they become bigger problems.

Comprehensive building inspection and report

Our experienced Building Inspectors check every aspect of the property to identify any major or minor defects, leaks, waterproofing issues and likely repairs that will be required.

Unlike many others, we take the time to carefully inspect the interior and exterior of the property, including the roof, building, sub-floor structure, decks and verandahs, fences, flooring, stairs, windows, carport and garage, plumbing, structural soundness and any non-compliant building work.

We then provide you with a comprehensive report that details any issues or concerns, along with the steps and likely costs to rectify them.

What we look at during a building inspection

Unlike many other building inspectors, we go below the surface to thoroughly check everything. We get under the floor, we get up in the roof, we use infrared camera’s and moisture meters, and meticulously inspect every aspect of the property.
