The Anatomy of a Pre-Purchase Inspection

A pre-purchase inspection is your safety net against hidden defects and potential hazards. We delve into every nook and cranny of the property, examining both the house and the yard. Inside the house, we scrutinize everything from roof rust to plumbing leaks. In the yard, we assess sheds, garages, and even the health of trees. Our reports are not just a checklist; they’re a roadmap to a safer home, detailing every major and minor defect we find.
Interior : Walls, floors, ceilings, windows, and doors.
Exterior : Roof, gutters, downpipes, and external walls.
Sub Floor : Leaks from showers, pipes, dampness, mould.
Roof Void : insulation type and installation, frame defects, roof cladding defects.

The Power of Insight: What You Gain

Our 60-100-page inspection reports offer more than just a list of defects. They provide actionable insights, helping you understand exactly what needs fixing and how to go about it. We also identify safety hazards, including areas that may contain asbestos or have unsafe balconies and cracks in walls. With our comprehensive pre-purchase building inspection, you’ll be in a position to make a more informed decision, knowing exactly what major defects and safety hazards are present.
Negotiation Leverage : Use the report to negotiate a better price.

The Tools of the Trade: Our Technology

We employ cutting-edge tools to see what the naked eye can’t. Our moisture meters detect unseen damp and leak issues, while thermal imaging helps us assess insulation and roof frames. We even use advanced techniques like running a torch up a wall to reveal cracks that have been patched up. Our technology sets us apart, making your inspection foolproof and comprehensive.
