Special Purpose Reports / Workmanship Inspection

For your one-off reports – i.e. if there is a moisture problem, sagging ceilings or cracking or any areas of special concerns to you. Have you had work done and you are not happy with the finished product? We will inspect the completed work and advise you if it is completed to Australian Building Codes, Australian Standards and accepted building practices.

Dilapidation Reports

If you are going to build or if building is about to commence on a property near you – you need an unbiased Dilapidation Inspection now!!! Builders – don't do your own report! Avoid potential conflict of interest.

During construction, the neighbouring properties can sustain damage caused by the process. Inspections should be done before any demolition or siteworks have commenced. We also inspect for any existing or potential problems originating from outside your property i.e. tree roots of nearby building activities. We provide Before and After reports complete with detailed photos loaded on a CD for your ongoing perusal.

Older Buildings

When we inspect older buildings – 20 + years old – we report on the current conditions, taking into account the building requirements that were in place at the time of construction.

If we believe there is a potential problem with structurally integrity because of building practices we will mention this and recommend any remedial work required.

These items may include ....

  • Timber roof framing.
  • Balustrades for steps ( over 1 mt. high ) and balconies.
