BUILDING HOUSE INSPECTIONS inspectors will inspect


They will inspect all the internal areas of the house, look at all surfaces, ceiling, walls, cornices looking for any structural issues, they will look at the flooring condition of every room whether there is any bounce or any movement that needs more investigating.

The architraves and skirting boards are inspected for any termite damage and whether there is any dampness or mold that may be present

The bathrooms are inspected and tested for any leaking issues, any plumbing defects in the water leaving in a timely manner from basins or is their evidence of blockage.

The shower tiling and surrounds are looked at and inspected for any issues with the sealant, any cracks on shower bases, all tapware operating as required, are the shower screens intact with no breakages noted, the ventilation is checked as well as inspecting again for any termite damage, as termites love bathrooms


The inspection of the subfloor is probably the most important inspection as well as the roof space as these areas not many people can go into to inspect the condition.

With the subfloor we inspect for any stump damage, bearers and studs are ok and whether is evidence of any dampness in the soil, many a house I have inspected to find water damage in this area affecting the floorboards as well as presenting conditions which are conducive to termite infestations.

The roof space is inspected to see whether the structural roof members are still in good condition and whether they comply with the building code, the insulation is inspected as is all lighting and wiring.

Drainage is looked at and the roof is inspected looking for any damage to the tiling/metal  deck and looking at the flashings as well as gutters and downpipes

There are over 1000 items that are inspected during our inspections which can last anywhere between 1 hour to 2 hours depending on the size of the property and the number of defects present, so as you can see it’s well worth the small cost to have your pre-purchase inspected by building house inspections.
