Check Your Home For Defects

A building inspection is recommended if you have noticed any minor defects such as a leaking roof or cracks in brick walls.

A building inspection prior to buying a home will give you a great insight into the cost of repair, or for a home you own, it will also provide a maintenance program on your investment. Ensuring you stay on top of property defects will lead to a higher sale price when you decide to sell. Find out more about the right time to book a building inspection.


What We Look For

We inspect the entire building - even those hard to reach places inside roof voids and under flooring. And because John is a registered builder and a qualified carpenter he knows all the tricks of the trades. This is where you benefit. His extensive building experience means he will go to places others won’t even know about. For more information on how we check for defects read our blog.
