What Type of Building Inspection Do You Need?
To fully answer this question, you need to understand what the types of building inspections are, how they differ, and who they help.
- Pre-Purchase Inspections
This service is aimed at those who are looking to buy a property and offer peace of mind and confidence for buyers.
- Construction Inspections
Building a house comes with a lot of things to think about, including keeping track of the different stages of the build process. Staged building payments can be made with confidence when you know that the builders are working hard and up to standard.
- Termite and Pest Inspections
Timber structures are at risk from pests like termites, and they can quickly become an expensive problem to remedy. An inspection can assess if there is a problem and suggest treatment options to help if it is needed.
- Asbestos Inspections
If you have a property built before 1990, there is a good chance that asbestos was used in the construction process. Knowing about the presence of asbestos in your property is important to make it safe, as it can cause severe health problems if disturbed. An asbestos inspection is more than just a visual check, it involves taking a sample to be checked in a lab – so a certified inspector is important.
- Methamphetamine Inspections
Western Australia has the highest recorded methamphetamine use in Australia, and illicit drug use in a property leaves contamination that cannot be seen. Exposure can cause severe health problems, and remedial work can be expensive. Inspections to check for methamphetamine residue could save you from purchasing a home that could end up being a money pit.
- Industrial Inspections
Commercial buildings need inspections in the same way that homes do, and our team can inspect a property to ensure that it is safe according to standards and passes industry regulations.
- Dilapidation Reports
If you are planning a large-scale renovation or construction, a report can include details about the existing and current condition of a property – perfect for protecting neighbours. It is a great way to offer reassurance for others who might be affected by any works to avoid nasty and expensive disputes.
