Basic Building Assessment Report

The basic building assessment deals with visually checking to see if the structural components of a house are performing as they were designed to. This inspection involves visual assessment of accessible areas of the property to identify any significant defects to the major structural components of the property. The structural items that will be assessed include foundations, floors, sub-floor space, internal and external walls, the roof and ceiling frame, rusting of primary structural elements such as lintels and beams, retaining walls and structural damp issues.

Verbal Building Advice & Opinions

Not everyone needs a written report. Clients come to us often for opinions on the house they currently own or are buying. Perhaps they want to renovate and knock out a wall. Sometimes they want to know the items that fall under our Basic Inspection category but don’t want the expense of the written report. In cases like these, we offer a Verbal Inspection. We meet you at the inspection address and you can ask our registered and qualified builder any questions you have. Phone us for a competitive quote!

Reports are usually emailed on the same day as the inspection. We will also print and post if requested.
