Protect your investment
Inspect to protect
​For many people a house is the single largest purchase they’ll ever make. But because most consumers know little about building, they risk making a major mistake. 
Purchasing a building inspection before buying is essential. 
In most instances, the sale and/or purchase of residential property is an important decision. In order for these decisions to be regarded as informed, completely independent and objective advice is often required.

Our Sample Report
You can get specialist advice about any major problems and how they will affect the property over time..
It’s particularly important when dealing with older homes. The report may reveal hidden defects that you may not have considered an issue. Many buyers assesss the property on its cosmetic merits and won't see it through a builders eye. No house is without defect.

Our Case Study
Risk or Reward
Inflated insurance
Some plumbing systems and old heating or electrical services, even some wall linings are considered high risk and can dramatically increase the cost of insurance.
Without the comfort of knowing you may be at risk of costly water damage or worse, a house fire!
Asbestos products have a shelf life and it takes experience to identify these problem areas.

More than meets the eye
1. Cracks in cladding 
Brick cracks are more than a cosmetic problem
2. Cracks in plasterboard walls  
These cracks are one of the most common signs that you have foundation movement. 
3. Doors
Doors can stick, swing open after being pushed shut, or have gaps around the top and bottom.
4. Windows
The windows may have moisture issues,become difficult to open, stick, or defective hardware.
5. Fascia and spouting  
Common area to rot and leaking spouting causing problems perhaps there is asbestos in this area
6. Cracks in foundation
Your concrete slab is made to bend and flex to a certain extent. If your foundation moves and flexes too much, the slab will crack
7. Wet room floors
Older building techniques are prone to rot and mould if enviromental conditions allow it
8. Chimney issues
Your chimney is the heaviest portion of your home and concentrates a lot of weight in a small space. If your foundation or the soil that it sits on is unstable, your chimney may start to lean or bricks crack.
9. Rising dampness from a failed moisture barrier.

A growing number of prudent home buyers and landlords are going beyond traditional pre-purchase building, pest and asbestos inspections – they are also getting their homes drug-tested.
In homes that have gone undetected as meth labs, or where there has been heavy use of the drug, chemical residue can seep into soft furnishing, carpets and even walls and ceilings, leaving unwitting new tenants or owners exposed to serious health risks.

Although we have been trained in testing and acquisition of trail evidence we do not currently provide this service.

Testimonials
  1. We had Adam do a building inspection for us when we were considering buying an upstairs flat in an old Wellington villa. Adam carried out the inspection promptly and thoroughly. The report came through in a timely manner and allowed us to proceed with the purchase. We have had the property for 4 years now and there have been no surprises - all maintenance has been as per the inspection.
