Safehome Building Inspections has been around since 2004 which is a long time in the house inspection industry. Tools and equipment to assist in locating defects have advanced over this time. Because of this, as qualified building inspectors in Melbourne, have to keep up with the changes.
Many people ask what equipment do we use to assist us in locating defects. In regard to the equipment, we are supposed to use as per the Australian Standards, there is nothing stated. It does state in sections that we only require a 3.6 m ladder.
The photographs above was taken during a building inspection in Melbourne and shows a floor frame bearer join. This join should be made directly over the stump footing and is non compliant with Australian Standards 1684.2 – 2006 of the Residential timber framed construction.
Safehome conducts exhaustive and independent inspections on properties with over 1000 defects to be crossed off before completing the inspection.
The photo to the left shows some missing tiles on a roof during a recent building and pest inspection in Albert Park. This is considered as a major defect because of its potential damage. It can result to leaking into the roof space, roof frame and eave linings.
