Why Get a Construction Inspection?
Whether you are building your perfect home, or you are investing in property, you want to make sure that everything is working to plan – following your timeline, avoiding potentially expensive and time-consuming mistakes.
Building a property is the work of several different trades, all coming together to create a house – and managing those relationships can be difficult, especially if there is a problem.
When you are constructing a property, you will likely by making staged progress payments – and here at Jim’s we perform inspections at every stage.
A construction inspection should be made at each of the four main stages of the build:
- Slab Stage:
Finished concrete is inspected to make sure it is even and consistent, and that all regulations about vapour barrier and steel reinforcements are being met.
- Frame Stage:
Frame positioning, windows and door frames, load bearing timbers as well as all bracing, mechanical fasteners, tie downs and anchors.
Inspect roofing, brickwork, installation of windows including fixings, plaster, wall linings and waterproof membranes.
The handover inspection is an exhaustive check of the construction. We check all work completed to ensure that it meets relevant Australian Standards and Building Codes – and it matches the Approved Plans. This usually takes place once the build is complete – and all the internal fixtures, fittings, and finishes have been completed.
When you instruct Jim’s Building Inspections to undertake a construction inspection on your Perth build, we will give you the confidence to know that you build is progressing as expected – so that you can happily make your staged payments.

What to Expect from a Construction Inspection from Jim’s.
Having a construction inspection in Perth means having an expert on hand, to manage relationships between you as the client and the builders and contractors working on site. We know that contractors perform much better when there is an independent inspector there, and we can manage communication on your behalf regularly.
As you will likely be making staged payments for the construction, we can inspect at each stage to ensure that everything has been completed in the correct way. We offer inspections at the following stages:
- Contract Review – ensuring that all contracts are correct
- Slab Inspection – Before concrete is poured, this ensures that all slabs are level, the vapour barrier is correctly placed, and there are no poor building practices or incorrectly placed materials
- Plate Height Inspection – Window and door frames are checked to ensure they are at the correct height, the ceilings are at the correct height, and the insulation is not torn.
- Lock-Up Inspection – This is an important stage as it is usually the biggest payment to the contractors. We inspect the roofing, flashings, brickwork, windows and doors, plaster, and other areas to ensure that they have all been completed to the standards of the applicable Building Code.
- Handover Inspection – At this point we ensure that all work has been completed in accordance with Australian Safety Standards, including any interior fittings like cladding, architraves, bathrooms and kitchens, bench tops and storage.
- 6-Month Maintenance Warranty Inspection – This is the stage where any ‘settling’ issues need to be rectified and it is important to have the property inspected by an expert at this stage too.
Jim’s Property Inspections Perth employ inspectors that are experienced in the building and construction industry, from builders to conveyancers – so our construction inspection will be completed by an expert.
