Considering Buying A House?

Are you considering buying a house? A pre purchase building inspection takes the fear out of buying a home and can eliminate any unpleasant surprises. We recommend you learn as much as you possibly can, including general maintenance issues and also matters that may need repairing. Before you buy a home, it's a good idea to make sure everything is as it should be. There's no better feeling than knowing the home you've just bought is structurally safe and sound and that you're not going to run into any issues or problems with it now, or in the near future.


All our pre-purchase building inspections are conducted by a fully insured and licensed builder who is in the business of building inspections with a wealth of knowledge available to help make the whole process very smooth and to give you confidence in the property you are about to purchase. Consider including a meth test along with your inspection. Contamination issues associated with clandestine meth labs can make children and adults very ill, it is also a costly exercise to decontaminate.
