Don't wait until your dream home is finished until you get it inspected. Avoid nasty costs and hassles by getting any issues fixed as they arise.
At what stage of building should I have a building inspector do an inspection on my house?
Timber Frame Inspections
Timber Frame Inspection
We recommend a timber frame inspection prior to the installation of any wall linings to highlight any inadequacies or defects in the framing timbers or workmanship.Problems often discovered include:
Distorted or broken timbers
Roof trusses out of alignment
Dwelling Lockup Inspection
This inspection is generally carried out once external cladding is completed and internal linings (including plumbing and electrical rough-in) fitted. This inspection typically highlights any inadequacies of the internal and external lining finishes, as well as inconsistencies in the colours or materials used throughout the dwelling.
This inspection typically takes place prior to the final payment being made to the builder. Items highlighted during this inspection include: quality of finishes, appropriate inclusions (if specified), and general quality of workmanship.
It is extremely important to get the pre handover building inspection stage of a building progress inspection, and it is important you arrange this to be carried out by a qualified, licensed and experienced builder. Having a veteran builder on your side will be extremely valuable as they will be able to call out dodgy workmanship with confidence.
