Building and Pest Inspection in Coburg

Safehome’s qualified building inspectors conduct independent building and pest inspections in Coburg and Melbourne. We assist home buyers to make the right decision before buying a home.

The adjacent photograph was taken by our qualified building inspector during a recent building inspection in Coburg and depicts damp damage sustained to the lower laundry wall.  This is commonly seen due to washing machine tap leaks and considered a maintenance defect. However, the issue lies whether or not further damage has been caused to the wall framing or floor framing.

Once the wall lining is removed there is a strong likelihood that further damage exists.  In this case, at Coburg there was minor damp damage on the floor boards but the frame was OK.

A building inspection carried out by a qualified building inspector will be able to locate and report to these defects.
