House Inspections in Melbourne

The decision to sell or purchase a home is important. For many sellers, they’ve been living in the property for many years, and have raised a family and made memories there. For potential buyers, they’re looking for a place they feel truly comfortable – not to mention, a piece of real estate that’s going to represent a good investment for years to come. That’s why it’s critical that the decision to make an offer on a house is well-informed, not just driven by emotion and a great sales pitch. How better to proceed than with accurate and reliable information about the property in question?! Our property inspections for Melbourne listings are a great way to get to the hidden details you normally wouldn’t uncover until they became noticeable problems. Building inspections go beyond the obvious, focusing on hidden defects that may be costly if un-detected. Carried out by an independent building inspector with extensive engineering experience, our services are comprehensive and guaranteed to give you the insight you deserve.

Special Purpose Reports

We provide a number of different Special Purpose Reports including:-

  • Crack monitoring
  • Foundation problems and geotechnical testing
  • Structural integrity report and rectification recommendations
  • Roof inspections

Quality of tradesman’s work

A special purpose report may be completed if someone has a concern about the quality of work that has been completed by a tradesman. We can review the works and offer suggestions to rectify the problems. For example, if the concrete slab in a garage is cracking excessively, we can investigate the cause of the cracks and whether the slab was built correctly; or if a roof is leaking, we can investigate the cause of the leak and provide a recommendation.

About our Special Purpose Reports

These reports are for particular areas of a property, for example a current owner has noticed a wall start to crack we can investigate the cause of the cracks and recommend a possible solution to the problems. The investigation may include monitoring the cracks to determine the rate of movement and direction. Geotechnical testing may also be carried out where we will expose the footing and gather soil samples to determine if the cause of the cracking is related to the footing depth or soil structure.  The soil structure is usually too wet because of a leaking down-pipe or poor drainage.  In the instance where there are highly reactive clay soils, the soil structure can shrink in dry periods and expand in wet or moist conditions, causing movement of footings.
