"Barney from House Inspect Australia inspected my new home.
Barney was polite, knowledgeable and professional, his report was accurate and detailed and his advice was sound.

He was willing to answer questions and add to the report after payment, when I needed further information about some of the items on his list. I would definitely use Barney again, and I recommend his company to anyone wanting a home inspection."
