Pre-Purchase Building & Pest Inspections

A pre-purchase building and pest inspection, commonly referred to as a building inspection report, is a professional and thorough inspection of a property’s structural and pest condition before purchase. Pre-purchase building inspections highlight any issues found in the property structure. The inspection includes but is not limited to timber, brickwork, concrete slab construction, insulation, heating, electrical wiring, gas fittings, asbestos, roofing, water tanks, plumbing, termite or other pest infestation. A pre-purchase building and pest inspection is a worthwhile investment for anyone that intends to purchase a property.

New Building Inspections

Whether building a new home or renovating your existing one, ensure it’s been done right with a new build inspection. This inspection ensures you don’t end up with defective work or compromised quality. We provide peace of mind by conducting new home building inspections during the build process and/or at final handover. Our inspections can happen at one, several, or all of the following stages:

Slab stage inspection

Frame stage inspection

Lock up or enclosed stage inspection

Handover inspection

Dilapidation Reports

A dilapidation report is an invaluable document for any property owner embarking on a building project. When a property needs a renovation or redevelopment, a dilapidation report accurately assesses the property’s current condition.  It also considers aspects of the property that are likely to be affected by construction work, excavation or demolition. A dilapidation survey will also detail any specific changes needed to ensure the property remains at its current state. For dilapidation reports, contact the experts.

Roof Inspections

Roof inspections are a vital step for any property buyer or owner. That’s because the roof is one of the most vulnerable parts of your home. Flashing, ventilation, and insulation are just a few of the things that all need to be in good shape to prevent costly repairs down the line. A roof inspection can detect pre-existing leaks and maintenance requirements. Detailed reports include photos and video (see drone roof inspections) to help diagnose any pertinent issues.

Warranty Inspections

When we deal with new builds, people often ask, “what happens if something goes wrong?” That’s why warranties exist, to give homeowners peace of mind that their new homes are in good shape—or at least, they are when the warranty period expires. Warranty inspections occur during the warranty period (usually 12 months) after the building is complete. A warranty inspection will identify any discernible defects in the completed work. The owner can request that the builder fixes the issues listed in the report under their warranty obligations. A warranty inspection is essential to identify and rectify defects before they become a headache and a potentially costly problem to resolve once the warranty has expired.

Industrial & Commercial Building Inspections

We have the experience and capability to perform a wide range of industrial and commercial building inspections. During our time conducting building and pest inspections on commercial and industrial properties, we have worked on a wide range of spaces. We inspect showrooms, art studios, distribution centres, commercial units, storage facilities, warehouses, manufacturing facilities, heavy manufacturing and light assembly, and similar buildings, and provide a detailed industrial or commercial building inspection report as part of our service. We also understand the dynamics of industrial buildings and the need to accommodate a continuous manufacturing process.

Please get in touch with our commercial building inspector for more information.

Drone Aerial Inspections

Drone aerial building inspections offer an innovative and cost-effective way to inspect buildings at height. We provide drone aerial inspections in 4K HD to assist building and pest inspections at height, building planning and development, plus building maintenance and repair.

A drone aerial inspection provides visual assessments where access is limited or challenging. Currently, rooftop access is not permitted for any area over 3.6 metres high. Erecting scaffolding to allow an inspection over this height is time-consuming and expensive. Because of this, areas above 3.5 metres are omitted from building inspections. Our drone building inspections will enable us to carry out a comprehensive check on all areas of the property.

Our drone is impressively powerful and can identify and photograph defects in roof conditions such as cracked tiles, bad pointing, rusted or corroded roofing and gutters, blocked gutters, damaged solar panels and air conditioners. Inspections are completed quickly and with minimal disruption, providing you with an easy, cost-effective way to identify potential issues on your property.

We also provide project planning and consultation and estimates on building repair work at height. Prices start from $250 inc GST

Our drone inspection pilot is CASA licensed and insured

A drone aerial inspection can identify:
