Our Melbourne Building Inspections and Reports are thorough and comprehensive.
A building inspection involves checking every aspect of the property to identify any major or minor defects, leaks, waterproofing issues and any repairs that are likely to be required.
PPI’s Melbourne building inspectors 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 also check for 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.
A building and pest inspection not only looks at the structural soundness of the building, it also identifies any pest issues, past or present.
Pests like termites, wood borers, mould and fungus’ can cause thousands of dollars of damage to your property and put your health and safety at risk. And unfortunately, many Melbourne suburbs are prone to these things.
